When it comes to building my health and wellbeing knowledge I’m a self-confessed digital-phobe. Yep, even though I have a food blog I’ve been reluctant to fully immerse myself in the digital age. I prefer a ‘real’ book any day over an e-book and can never resist pouring over a glossy magazine or flicking through a newspaper (a printed one).
We have so much unavoidable screen time already in our daily lives (work emails, online banking, Google maps etc) that I try to top up my health and wellbeing knowledge through digital-device-free means.
The podcast party
No surprise then that I’m a latecomer (or a newcomer) to the podcast party. It’s taken me until 2019 to embrace the expert knowledge and inspiration easily available through podcasts. I was nudged in the right direction after writing a blog post titled ‘the best wellness podcasts to listen to this year’ for my local yoga studio, Power Living.
I’m now convinced that there’s a place in my life for podcasts – to make more productive and educational times when a book or a magazine isn’t practical. Like during a long walk, a relaxing bath or a standing only room commute.
Here I’m sharing my piece on the best health podcasts for 2019. They cover nutrition, exercise, spirituality and more. You’ll see a couple of familiar names on the list (Oprah and Gwenyth are podcasting gurus), plus some unfamiliar ones, as well as cutting edge educational brands like TEDTalks.
