Hello everyone (: I hope you are all doing well today! I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite podcasts. These are great to listen to while driving, taking a nice walk, sitting in a bath, or even just laying around relaxing.
Mind Body Musings – Maddy Moon’s podcasts are some of the first ones that I stumbled across. Whether you are recovering from an eating disorder is just looking for some genuine health advice, Maddy has some great tips and insight. Some favorites…
- Matt Stone: Creating A High Metabolic Rate, Eating With Instinct & The Importance Of Rest (great advice on how/why to stop the dieting cycle, also goes into explanation behind the Minnesota Starvation Experiment and semi-restricting.)
- 5 Ways To Begin Intuitive Eating (a lot of people coming out of an eating disorder need to relearn intuitive eating)
Recovery Warriors – This website not only has some great podcasts, but also amazing articles as well. I appreciate how they focus a lot on happiness and relationships in recovery, and not so much on food/diet. Some favorites…
- The Power and Potential in the Father Daughter Relationship with Joe Kelly (Did you know that studies have shown that the father/daughter relationship is the most important when it comes to eating disorders in young girls?)
- Finding Your Definition of Recovery with Victoria Keller (Everyone’s “recovery” and version of being “recovered” is different. This is a great way to start thinking about your personal recovery.)
Happier by Gretchen Rubin – Gretchen’s book, The Happiness Project, is one of my favorites and I was so excited when she started her podcasts. While they aren’t recovery related, this is a great resource for anyone who wants to live a happier life. And who doesn’t want happiness?!?
- Getting More Sleep, Resisting Strong Temptations, and Why It’s OK To Be Boring (I struggle with wanting to be a more “exciting” and “productive” person, but this helps me realize that it’s okay to not do everything and to take some me time.)
- Embrace Good Smells; Remember That Working Is One of the Most Dangerous Forms of Procrastination. (This kind of relates to the link above, but sometimes I find myself being “busy” to run away from/procrastinate something else that really needs my attention.)
Do you have any podcasts that you enjoy listening to?
