Quarantine is a great time to expand your horizons and listen to some new tunes and podcasts.
I go through phases where I listen to music when I’m working or podcasts on my way to work. I laugh writing ‘on my way to work’ because boy does that sound like a foreign concept. Anyways, I go through phases because it depends on the day/week on what my schedule looks like. If my schedule in the morning is open with no calls (now rare) then I like to listen to some happy jams or a podcast to kickstart my day. Now I find myself listening to up beat music or podcasts when I go for my daily walk. I’ve been SO bad about going for my walks lately but it is something that I enjoy because I simply disconnect from the world. One thing that I can’t suggest enough is going on airplane mode when you go for your walk. It really helps you unplug and focus on the good that you are doing for your body. If you are in need for some music and podcast recommendations, I have you covered! I asked a couple of friends what they are listening to and we sure have some good ones.
Have a great day– Pure happiness. Enough said!
Pumped Pop– I love listening to this when I’m going for a walk or run. Such a great jams.
Sing-along:90’s to Now– This is PERFECT for a road trip where you can just belt out and sing.
US Summer Hits of the 10s– Such great bops of the past. Highly recommend!
Your Favorite Coffee House– When the chill me comes out, I listen to this playlist. It is perfect to have in the background in the morning when you are checking your emails and getting your mind ready for the busy day ahead.
Hot Country– I would say that I’ve come to love country over the past 5 years. Prior to that I hated it but now it just reminds me of summer and the happy times that come with it.
And if you a mix of all of the above, I created this playlist that I’ve been listening to for years as I discover new music.
Girls Gotta Eat– I love this podcast SO much. I feel like I am talking to my best friends. Topics include boys, relationships, work, etc. It has it all. I went to their live show over a year ago with some friends and we had the BEST time. Since their live shows are cancelled they are actually hosting them live via instagram so be sure to follow them there too!
U Up?– This is a podcast that I recently started listening to (as of last week) and I’m enjoying it so far and they have some great previous episodes with great topics that I want to listen to.
Bad of Paper– Grace and Becca host an incredible podcast that once again makes you feel like you are talking to your friends. Highly suggest it!
Skinny Confidential Him & Her– This is also an oldie but goodie. To be honest I haven’t had much time to listen to them lately but they always have great guests and topics I enjoy listening to.
The Daily– This is a Podcast that the NY Times puts together every day. It highlights the main news story of the day and they discuss the topic for 30 mins. It is very interesting and something I enjoyed listening to during my commute. Pre-Covid topics were a bit more interesting and it really educates you on the topic.
What are you listening to in quarantine?
