Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

Important Life Factors
There’s never not a ‘right’ time to learn these 7 key factors of life. When you feel like you’re on top of the world or when you’re at the lowest of lows, acknowledging the 7 factors of wellness and understanding how to utilise their purpose to your personal life, will easily enhance the great times and allow you to pick up from the bad ones.   Each factor is just as important than the other, but some will be more relevant and more important in our day to day lives. There’s nowhere to say you have to be perfect at all 7, it’s just a guideline on how to live a healthy, happy and mindful lifestyle.

The Power of Podcasts

It’s the simplicity of listening to a podcast that appeals to the audience. They’re highly engaging and relatable, you’re in control of what you want to hear, and you get to check in with your favourite hosts every time a new episode is uploaded. The most pleasant part of a podcast is of course having a real sense of personal connection – if we’re not having physical connections then these on-demand audios are certainly the next best thing.

Why Should We Listen to Podcasts?

The motivation and inspiration you gain from podcasts is pretty incredible. As mentioned earlier you have a sense of personal connection with those host/presenters you listen to and you connect with them on another level, you’ll value their advice and trust their sources through their discussions and conversations they have with other like-minded and well-informed guests on the basis of a particular topic – with podcasts you’re usually listening to conversations which is far more interesting than an e-book style.

It’s absolutely necessary now in the current climate. More than ever, we’re mindful of our personal wellness and that we have 7 factors that we need to protect and nourish. By listening to podcasts we’re actually nurturing our intellectual wellness – this is what stimulates our brains and expands our knowledge.

There’s an extensive load of Informative and educational podcasts that we have access to. We shouldn’t stop learning when we reach our final year of education or when we feel satisfied within our jobs. There’s an entire universe of knowledge out there that we only know a tiny fraction of and there’s always room for improvement in our lives and within the things we do on a day to day basis. Tune in to something and learn something new or enhance your skills and information with what you already know.

Podcasts are easily accessible and easy to use and you can listen to them wherever you are whilst doing pretty much whatever you’re doing; Working out at the gym, commuting to work, getting ready in the morning & completing mindless chores, they’re good to go wherever you are – above all that they are FREE.

You can find a podcast for everything now. Need a laugh? Need break-up advice? Fancy listening to murder mysteries or conspiracy theories? Learning about nutrition – you name it it’s there and it’s here to stay! There’s a topic for everything and everyone make most of having access to such useful platforms.

Final thoughts?

If you haven’t already started obsessing over podcasts, then go do so now. Consider them as time fillers – music isn’t always a mood but listening to something influential is. Explore what topics you’re interested in, what would you like to know? Start making most of your time and fuelling your brain with good media and engaging with things you’re personally more interested in – you’re in control and it’s not often we are in control of the media channels that are online and on the tv, we can’t determine whether or not we see/hear negative stories/comments especially in the morning and before bed. Choose your entertainment wisely.
