Summer travel: Wellness podcast recs


With the long weekend ahead of us, many will be traveling to celebrate the quintessential summer holiday away from home. Make the most of heavy traffic or long waits at the airport by downloading a few podcast episodes to pass the time.

Here are my favorite picks for podcasts focused on wellness topics such as happiness, mindfulness, mental health, spirituality, work-life balance, emotional intelligence, self-care, and more -- each linked with the summary from Apple Podcasts. Happy Fourth!

Change Agent

How can learning the secrets of competitive breath holding help a woman fix an online shopping habit? What can a recovering alcoholic learn from a Domino's Pizza marketing campaign? Charles Duhigg, the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author of “The Power of Habit,” hosts this podcast that turns obstacles into opportunities. We unearth surprising stories from science and business to offer solutions to people's problems. Will the solutions work? We stick around to find out. 

Forever35

Which night creams will make you look well-rested, is quitting coffee really worth the headache, can emptying your closet actually bring you joy, and is the Hanacure mask really just intended to get you to post an unflattering photo of your face mid-mask on Instagram? These are the kinds of self-care questions that wellness addicts and writers Kate Spencer and Doree Shafrir discuss each week, along with a special guest.

Happier with Gretchen Rubin

Gretchen Rubin is HAPPIER, and she wants you to be happier too. The #1 bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before gets more personal than ever as she brings her practical, manageable advice about happiness and good habits to this lively, thought-provoking podcast. Gretchen’s cohost and guinea pig is her younger sister, Elizabeth Craft, a TV writer and producer living in Los Angeles, who (lovingly) refers to Gretchen as her happiness bully. Part of the Cadence13 Network.

10% Happier with Dan Harris

Dan Harris is a fidgety, skeptical ABC newsman who had a panic attack live on Good Morning America, which led him to something he always thought was ridiculous: meditation. He wrote the bestselling book, "10% Happier," started an app -- "10% Happier: Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics" -- and now, in this podcast, Dan talks with smart people about whether there's anything beyond 10%. Basically, here's what this podcast is obsessed with: Can you be an ambitious person and still strive for enlightenment (whatever that means)? New episodes every Wednesday morning.
