Here are my favourite podcasts in the categories of health, nutrition and fitness, personal growth and motivation and blogging and business. I try to listen to a podcast, or at least part of one, most days of the week. I walk a lot to get around so it’s the perfect time to listen. 15 minutes here, 20 minutes, whenever I’m walking I throw one on.
I have a Samsung phone, so I listen to podcasts using the Pocket Casts app, if you’re on Apple, you can listen through iTunes. You can also listen to these directly through the podcasts websites if you don’t have an Apple computer or phone.
