40+ Lifestyle Podcasts to Help You Design Your Dream Life

The best lifestyle podcasts on the planet.

If you don't listen to lifestyle podcasts you are missing out on incredible resources dedicated to helping you design a lifestyle you don't need a vacation from.

One of the biggest difference that sets apart high achievers from mediocre people is their dedication to self-improvement. The most successful, inspiring and productive people I know read every day, watch courses and listen to podcasts among other habits of successful people to not only learn, get inspired but stay ahead of the competition.

I started listening to podcasts more than five years ago and have listened to hundreds of episodes. After listening to entrepreneurs, psychologists, scientists, athletes, academics and high achievers I became more knowledgeable on topics ranging from entrepreneurship, travel, relationships, money, spirituality, history, philosophy to neuroscience and much more.

Today I want to share a list of the best lifestyle podcasts in the world.

How to Listen to More Lifestyle Podcasts

First, you must be curious about the topic the podcast is about. You either enjoy the host, the guest or the overall discussion that is relevant to your lifestyle.

If you start listening to a podcast and find yourself bored in the first five minutes, stop and start another one. You don't want to steal time from the podcasts you are going to enjoy. You don't have to finish if you don't enjoy it.

Here are some strategies you can use to listen more:

  • Listen while you commute.
  • Listen while you cook.
  • Listen while you jog.
  • Listen while you wait in traffic.
  • Listen while you workout.
  • Listen at 1.5x speed.
  • Listen to topics and guests you enjoy.
