My average morning starts off at 5 a.m. I am usually awake an hour before CloClo is and try to squeeze in some quiet “me time.” I’ll do my 5 Minute Fitness Commitment, make some coffee or tea (or my detox smoothie!) and try to read something for 20 minutes before making breakfast. After I drop CloClo off at school is when my usual hour long commute to the office begins. I got really tired of listening to the same songs over and over again and have been taking full advantage of that commute to make it have a really positive and meaningful impact on my mornings… AKA I’ve been super obsessed with Podcasts! I’ve been telling the #CINCTeam every week which Podcasts I’m currently obsessed with and since they were all super into them, I decided to share my top favorites with you! Keep scrolling to see what my current faves are. I’ve linked them all below and they’re also available on Apple if you have an iPhone!
This podcast is really good for curious people to help understand how they fit into our world and human behavior. It will make you think twice about your unconscious mind and what your psyche is really all about through a bit of science and storytelling. There is a specific episode that I listened to that really spoke to me. It was Episode 53: Embrace the Chaos. It talks about how sometimes chaos and what we think is a “disaster” may work to our benefit without us knowing. I found it incredibly helpful and relatable with my given chaotic schedule everyday.
This one is SO great for creatives. If you’re a creative person (which we all are even if you think you’re not), it really talks you through points on how to be more productive, different ways of thinking and challenging yourself in different environments. I especially loved the episode that talked about creating “deep work.” I’ve not only gone through all the episodes, but I’ve replayed a few of them because it has helped me in so many ways with work. It has challenged me to think outside of the box and to continue to grow in my field. I think I’ve told every person in the office to listen to this podcast because it is so beneficial for all of us!
We’re always looking for better ways on how we can budget and save, right? This podcast is great for creating a financial strategy, attainable real-life goals and how to essentially how to master your money! I’ve learned more about investing, IRAs, how much to save and why… it’s almost like having your own financial advisor geared towards working women! This is stuff most people won’t tell you.
This is the most recent podcast that I’ve been obsessing over. It’s about fostering your creativity by living a creative life that pushes out fear. You may recognize her name as she was the author of Eat, Pray, Love! This podcast has made such a positive impact on my life. Hearing other women/men go through similar life struggles and how they are working through it is so empowering. This is a great podcast for any dream chasers out there. Incredibly uplifting and powerful.
