Podcasts for a healthier mind (while you soak!)
Is there anything more relaxing than a warm bath with your favourite podcast playing in the background? We’re not talking true crime, news, or politics. Those have a time and place, but it shouldn’t be at the end of a long day when you’re trying to unwind.
We spend about a third of our lives sleeping, and its vital for maintaining good health—both mental and physical. If you suffer from insomnia, or never feel fully rested, try listening to our list of bath-friendly podcasts below. They’re designed to reduce anxiety and ensure the restful night’s sleep that you deserve.
The Daily Meditation Podcast
Quite literally a library of meditations at your finger-tips. This soothing podcast helps its listeners release feelings of anxiety as its host, Mary Meckley, takes them on a weekly journey to manage their emotions. As Mary says, you are worth slowing down for. Subscribe and relax.
If you regularly practice meditation it’s likely that this podcast is already on your subscribed list. If you haven’t, check out its past episodes which include guided meditations, mindfulness practices, and conversations about modern conscious living.
The New Yorker Fiction
Like an audiobook, but shorter. Enjoy this soothing monthly reading by the New Yorker’s fiction editor Deborah Treisman. Past episodes have featured some of our favourite female authors including Magaret Atwood and Emma Cline. Listen here.
