4 Podcasts to Help Increase Productivity and Implement Mindfulness into Your Life

Over recent years, podcasts have dramatically increased in popularity. Indeed, they are a great source of information that’s very easy to consume, as you can listen to them from pretty much everywhere, whether it’s at work, on your daily commute, at the gym, or at home…

Podcasts come in a very large variety of topics, from self-care to conspiracy theories, and everything in between. There is literally something for everyone. They’re a great tool if you’re looking to implement a bit more mindfulness into your life or to boost your productivity at work.

At a time where most people have their work emails on their phones, and witness a constant flow of notifications, it’s important to look after yourself, especially when you’re experiencing stress on a daily basis. Podcasts are good to teach you coping strategies, talk openly about mental health, or create a good work-life balance, and you know we’re all about that, here at Areaworks.

So, here’s a selection of some podcasts to help incorporate a little more mindfulness and productivity into your life.

1. The Minimalists

Having made a career out of learning how to live with less and how not to be so focused on material possessions, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus created a podcast on how to extend the concept of minimalism into multiple areas of your life. Examples include how to have a more minimalist approach to social media and the digital world or even how to get rid of all toxic relationships from your life.

Available on YouTube, Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

2. Selfie

Selfie tackles all the tricky aspects of self-care, from ‘Why don’t I eat the way I should?’ and ‘How can I get enough sleep?’ to ‘How can I deal with the aspects of my personality that make self-care tricky’?

This is a great podcast to start your journey towards self-improvement especially if you want to develop new tools that will last longer than any software: a new technique, a new mindset, a new way to be more efficient. These are all tools that will help you long after the podcast is over.

4. Beyond the To-Do List

Being productive and getting work done is one thing, but getting the right work done, and getting it done right is what’s going to help you achieve the true end goal of productivity: living a meaningful life.
