Great, Healthy Podcasts to Enjoy While Staying #SaferAtHome
8 Health Podcasts to Expand Your Brain Indoors
As we’ve previously touched on here at Network Health, the indoor life is the safest one for the time being. If you’re following the #SaferAtHome guidelines, your range of entertainment and possible pastimes has likely shrunk significantly.
Last week, we looked at online courses you can take for free during this time to add or develop skills. Today, we’re going to turn our attention to some excellent and informative podcasts that will help you grow in the amount you know regarding health and wellness topics.
Here are our favorite healthy living and wellness podcasts that will help pass the time while staying #SaferAtHome indoors.
Proof: A Podcast from America’s Test Kitchen
New episodes release Thursdays
Although food is arguably the most central part of a healthy lifestyle, it’s something we often take for granted. Our modern society has millions of nourishment options. This podcast from National Public Radio (NPR)’s famed America’s Test Kitchen, dives into the stories behind the foods we crave and the ones we don’t. Knowing the science and history of food helps us better understand which food is good for us and which food only looks or tastes good.
The Healthy Family Podcast
New episodes release monthly
Registered dietician Maryann Jacobsen, MS, RD helps you and your family get the most out of life with expertise and advice on how to make healthy choices that everybody in your household can commit to and enjoy.
The Kevin Rose Show
New episodes release twice a month
Kevin Rose made his name in technology and that same focus on operational efficiency is applied to the worlds of physical excellence and minimalism. Kevin’s podcast is great for those looking for tips on how to streamline and optimize their methods to reach the most daunting physical goals.
New episodes release multiple times a week
If you’re a fan of the science and medical side of nutrition and healthy living, you’ll love Dr. Ruscio’s podcast, in which the titular physician provides cutting-edge information about health, nutrition and functional medicine. With episode titles like Mold and Mycotoxins – How What You Can’t Smell Might be Harming You, Everything You Need to Know About Probiotics and Gene Testing Does More Harm than Good: What You Need to Know, Dr. Ruscio’s straightforward and radical approach is fresh in a sea of untrustworthy health information.
Zorba Paster On Your Health
New episodes release weekly
Fans of Wisconsin Public Radio have undoubtedly heard the weekend Zorba Paster On Your Health radio program that features the upbeat personality of Dr. Zorba Paster and his jovial, yet restrained, co-host, Tom Clark. A call-in-show, Zorba Paster On Your Health offers functional tips for real symptoms alongside medical news, wellness advice and delicious recipes that won’t break the calorie budget.
The One Mind Podcast
New episodes release monthly/bi-weekly
Unlike the other podcasts highlighted, The One Mind podcast focuses on meditation and mindfulness as a central goal. It stands out for its practical assessment of the limited time most of us have (even during #SaferAtHome), offering simple tips on how to get the most out of the few minutes we enjoy between tasks. It’s not all vibes and auras, however. Host Morgan Dix frequently explores the science behind meditation and the research that reveals its viability – and even necessity – in 21st-century America.
Deep Energy Podcast
New episodes release daily
Up until this point, our list has been primarily comprised of informative podcasts. The Deep Energy podcast, however, is something different. Rather than learning about how to enjoy a healthier life, the Deep Energy podcast provides relaxing and soothing ambient music, reiki and sounds to help you get to sleep easier. We know sleep is an extremely important part of health and wellness for both your body and mind. Using a podcast like Deep Energy to get to sleep will help you feel more alert and focused while working toward other goals during #SaferAtHome.
40+ Fitness Podcast
New episodes release weekly
Anybody over 30 can tell you that your body begins dropping some interesting surprises on you once you’ve exited the first few decades of your life. Some of these changes can make achieving fitness goals more difficult than they felt just ten years earlier. Luckily, the 40+ Fitness podcast offers advice that is custom-tailored to meet challenges those in their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond experience as they attempt to work toward physical and mental health goals.
Stay Safe and Grow During the Downtime
At Network Health, our mission is to build healthy and strong Wisconsin communities. While everybody is feeling the strain of a lack of physical community presence, we hope you’re adjusting to new routines and finding ways to set and achieve goals that time may not have otherwise allowed.
As always, if you have any questions about a plan with Network Health or if you’re a member and would like to speak to our wellness team directly to learn more about maximizing this time, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
