If you’re a bright ray of sunshine when it’s time to haul yourself out of the bed, the day immediately becomes that much more palatable. Those feel-good mornings are golden but as life would have it, there are bound to be days when you just wake up on the wrong side of the bed. On those dopamine deficient mornings, it takes every ounce of your being and a little extra help to turn the day on its head.
Enter the realm of podcasts. If you haven’t dipped your toes into the world of podcasts, once you get into it, there’s no turning back. On the other end of your Spotify playlists resides an entire treasure trove of soul-enriching conversations to silence that little voice in your head that stands in way of getting your day off to a good start. Whether you’re getting ready for the day or on your commute to work, there is plenty of time to squeeze in a podcast or two in-between your morning routine.
Trust us, it will change not only your day but your life. If you need any further convincing, impactful morning routines are a common thread amongst successful people. Here are our five chart-topping podcasts to show up to every day in the best possible version of yourself.
The Michelle Obama Podcast
When the former First Lady speaks, you listen. It’s as simple as that. When Michelle Obama announced the debut of her very own podcast, it was like Christmas came early. Having devoured her Netflix documentary, autobiography and every interview ever on the internet, Mrs Obama’s sheer grace and infectious personality is one that resonates deeply. We’d like to think of her as that one Aunt we all love and turn to for advice. In her first episode, she starts the conversation with her husband and former President Barack Obama. Expect copious doses of intellect, humour and life lessons all rolled into one.
On Purpose with Jay Shetty
Set out to make wisdom viral, former monk and social media darling Jay Shetty guides every millennial to leading their best life. Through conversations with authors, A-list celebrities and fellow self-help heroes, Shetty dives into the many aspects one might grapple with on the journey of life. From finding your purpose to increasing your productivity on the daily, if you’re looking for tangible ways to improve your wellbeing and lifestyle, Shetty’s the man. You’d want to be on standby to take down notes for this one.
Ted Talks Daily
Perhaps the most well-known and well-loved of the lot, Ted Talks were the place to go for wisdom before podcasts were a thing. Being a pioneer in the motivational seminar landscape, Ted Talks Daily remains as a mainstay in our list. On the days when you’re not quite sure what you’re seeking, this is the place to go. From current affairs to self-help topics, there’s an endless list available for listeners to explore. Succinct in length, Ted Talks Daily doesn’t scrimp on quality even on a time crunch.
Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu
This is not so much one of those podcasts you can have playing in the background while you get yourself together for the day. Tom Bilyeu’s long, deeply insightful conversations warrant your full attention. The established guests on Impact Theory who come from diverse backgrounds can range from neurologists to spiritual gurus. It’s here that you will walk away with unexpected knowledge and insight that you might not necessarily even have been in the pursuit of. Despite sessions that can even stretch to an hour, every minute will be well worth your time.
The Science of Happiness
Happiness is both the most simple yet complex of emotions that we all feel. Most of us experience joy from moment to moment but when we talk about being happy in the grand scheme of things, it’s a whole other story. How do we attain the level of contentment and love for life? The answers would surprise — it sure was an eye-opener for us. Believe it or not, there’s an entire episode dedicated to how to love people you don’t like. Yes, you read that right.
