Why it's time to listen to some podcasts.
Oh me oh my, what a year its been.
We are already in December and we've had our fair share of hardship. From lockdown, to literally being locked down at home without the social interaction that helps us to thrive and enjoy life!
This blog post is probably a good little reminder to get your airpods or (any headphones) on, and start listening and interacting.
During lockdown, phonecalls at the end of a day talking to customers seemed to be a little much for me personally. Although, I was craving the ability to interact and eavesdrop on conversations of people I didn't know. A weird thing to miss? We've all got our own weirdness about us so no judgement here please!
I started listening to podcasts and here is why you should to!
I was able to learn new things about my interests or hobbies. The podcast isn't only entertaining content, but also educational.
I did discover many podcast episodes that can also help you escape your daily routine. You can listen to news, politics, comedians, and celebrities instead of listening to your playlist over and over again.
I found myself listening and throwing myself into the lives of others, and that sense of escapism but also relatability at times, was the perfect thing to get me through some of the hardest days.
Some of our faves ( well mine) but the team would agree ;)
