I knew about podcasts and occasionally even listened to several in the past few years. However it is only recently I discovered the huge amount of fantastic content that is available. A barrier was always being overwhelmed by the choices, and put off by the variety in quality. With more and more people doing podcasts, the choices just seemed too much and it was more difficult to find the worthwhile ones. After getting a few recommendations from some friends and colleagues, I discovered some really great ones.
Which led me to seek out some more and to discover some really powerful ones that can really help our general wellbeing and mental health.
So here are just a few podcasts related to wellbeing that I would highly recommend. You can get these via the links included or at all the usual places! Give them a go and see what you think.
