The last few months have been a pulse check for prioritizing health and wellness. As the world experiences crisis after crisis, we are collectively losing the mindset and motivation to commit to our wellbeing and continue to thrive. So, instead of turning on the news, for the 3rd time today, or watching another rerun of Friends on Netflix, or falling into the tendency to criticize or grumble, I invite you to spend 30 minutes to an hour a day listening to these top three wellness podcasts to explore deeper into health and gain valuable information to share with your community.

If you are looking to explore all the different areas of health for your mind, body, and soul, check out the podcast, Heal Thy Self. Christian Gonzales (Doctor.G_ on Instagram) has one of the most uniquely constructed podcasts structured as 3 part episodes to keep the listener engaged, informed, and empowered. He starts with discussing a trending knowledge bomb on a subject of health and wellness, then a product review on things you’ll find in your bathroom cabinets and kitchen refrigerator. He caps off the show with intense interviews among top health professionals and coaches who hold a burning desire to help and transform other’s lives. With over 800,000 downloads and counting, this is a must-watch if you’re looking to take control of your health and finally learn to make informed decisions for your life

If you don’t know Dr. Mark Hyman, it’s time to crack open the book of life and explore everything he is doing to better society when it comes to healthy living. He is the go-to guy for all things healing when it comes to the food we’re eating, the environment surrounding us, and the stress we take on throughout our lives that can ultimately lead to chronic disease. His podcast shares in-depth conversations encompassing preventative care, maintaining your health, and taking control of what you allow into your life and how you can thrive from it! There’s a new saying out there folks, and it’s called “The best way is the Hyman way” Okay, so that’s not actually a saying – but it will catch on. 

Jay Shetty is one of the most inspiring and resonating life coaches and storytellers we have in our lives. If you haven’t seen him in his podcasts, you’ve undoubtedly seen one of his inspirational, heartfelt videos swimming through the social media waters! If looking to expand your happiness and intention throughout your life, while living with peace and prosperity, search no more. Shetty has a way of painting a clear picture of exactly what you’re aspiring towards and helps connect the dots of internal wellness you may subconsciously lacking. If growth is your goal, jump on board with the Shetty ship of possibilities and watch how your life begins to unfold when you start living life On Purpose. 

Health is more than what meets the eye. The uncommon conversation is what’s driving your wellness outside of the gym and off the plate. Understanding wellness as a creation of your existence is the tipping point of taking control of your life, including the foods you eat, the relationships you keep, self-care you give yourself, as well as environmental influences. Let today be the day you show yourself the love you deserve. Take the time to invest in your health to make a change for the better, to feel happier, to live healthier, and even invest in your own emotional intelligence.
