3 Wellness Podcasts You Won't Want to Miss

3 Wellness Podcasts that will boost your mood and make your day.

by Jessica Shelton

For many college students, we have busy schedules—running from class to class, studying 24/7, and attempting to maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle in the process. Something GenZ’ers have come accustomed to is multitasking (writing an article while struggling to get on the phone with your landlord for example). Lucky for us, BU’s campus is a long line stretching 175 acres in total. With that territory comes a lot of walking and a lot of time doing so. Here are three wellness podcasts to help you on your walk around campus.

The Well+Good Podcast

Reimagine what it means to live well with this podcast featuring thought leaders, celebrities, health experts, and you. The Well + Good podcast covers topics such as self-care, relationships, mental health, and more. Updating weekly on Wednesday, the Well + Good Podcast picks trending and popular topics for listeners. The podcasts run about 15-20 minutes and the perfect go-to-class listen.

The Mindful Kind

Sharing personal stories, The Mindful Kind, hosted by Rachael Kable, provides listeners with effective mindfulness techniques that can be incorporated into daily practice. With topics like goal setting, worrying less, and coping with stress, it is easy to find a podcast that can relate to being a college student. Running 7-10 minutes this podcast can teach us how to take care of ourselves and each other.

Optimal Health Daily

Running approximately 10 minutes, Optimal Health Daily, a podcast hosted by Dr. Neal Malik, takes the best fitness and health blogs, and reads them so you don’t have to. With over 1400+ episodes to choose from, the podcast picks articles about healthy eating, best at-home workouts to try, and Q+A’s from Dr. Neal himself.

These podcasts are just a stepping stone into the world of wellness podcasts. A walk to class and a click of an episode can alleviate stress, anxiety, and everything else that comes with being a college student. Happy listening!
