Life throwing curveballs at you? Trust us, you’re not alone. Between motherhood, work, relationships, and, well, life in general, it’s super easy to feel like you’re juggling flaming torches. And sometimes, those torches start to feel like they’re about to set everything ablaze.

Before you reach that point, how about you give your ears – and your soul – a little treat? Podcasts are practically a free therapy session you can attend in your pjs! So here are five super-cool podcasts to help you catch your breath and chillax.

Need a shot of espresso for your soul? “The Daily Boost” has got you covered. Short, sweet, and brimming with pep talks, host Scott Smith knows just what to say to put some spring back in your step. Forget the slump; this podcast will have you strutting your stuff toward your goals like a champ.

2. The Anxiety Coaches Podcast

First off, let us introduce you to “The Anxiety Coaches Podcast,” your new BFF for all things anxiety. Host Gina Ryan isn’t just talking the talk; she’s walked the walk as an anxiety coach herself. Each episode dives deep into the nitty-gritty of anxiety, like what makes you tick and how you can unwind that ticking. Real stories, real people, and actionable advice – it’s like a toolkit for your mind.

3. Rooted

Feeling a bit more Zen-curious? “Rooted” is like a warm cup of herbal tea for your spirit. Host Cassandra Eldridge talks about everything from chakra balancing to meditation. If you’re seeking a more holistic approach to unscramble that mind of yours, look no further. It’s like a spiritual spa day, every episode.

4. The Minimalists Podcast

If your life feels like an episode of “Hoarders,” both mentally and physically, then meet Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus – your decluttering gurus. They believe that simplifying your life can actually make room for happiness. Just imagine your mind as a room that needs some serious Marie Kondo action. Their podcast episodes help you toss out the mental junk so you can breathe easier. Ah, space!

5. Sleep With Me

Can’t sleep? Your mind racing faster than a caffeinated squirrel? “Sleep With Me” is like a bedtime story for grown-ups. Host Drew Ackerman tells tales so rambling and soothing that before you know it, you’re in dreamland. Yep, it’s an anxiety-buster and an insomnia-curer rolled into one.
