If you’re anything like us, you probably looooove taking a peek into the morning routines of successful people. Usually, they’re a combination of the following: wake up early, make bed, drink water with fresh lemon, work out, journal, write out a to-do list for the day. But recently, we’ve noticed a new addition to the common morning habits of high achievers: listening to podcasts. And quite frankly, it’s not hard to see why!
With so many different inspiring and educational podcasts out there, they’re the perfect way to start your day on the right note and learn something new before you even start working. Plus, you can listen to them while you’re doing other things, like while you’re brushing your teeth, doing your makeup, having your breakfast or commuting to work. Ready to add podcasts to your a.m routine? Spanning wellness, self-development, business, beauty and pop culture, these are our favourite new podcasts to start the day with.
