Let’s be honest, 2020 has really sucked. No need to go into detail. You know it. I know it. The news, world events, the global pandemic everything is a lot. It’s always a good idea to gather positive energy whether it’s a home spa day or a long day of doing nothing, whatever makes you feel at rest. Another good way to improve or maintain good mental health is listening to podcasts.

For a lot of people, it is very comforting to listen to the thoughts of others while you try to make out your own; it is encouraging to hear the experiences of strangers who remind you that you are not alone. While we hope that the year does a good 180 degree turn soon, every now and then, find a little time to take a breather and listen to any of the following podcasts for your mental health, for your self-care, for YOU.
