Teaching and Academics

Top Podcasts for Teachers

In our humble opinion, teachers are real-world superheroes! Besides tackling the weighty task of teaching all ages all that they need to know from an academic standpoint, they also have to know how to handle and navigate the emotions, moods, and learning styles of each individual placed in their care.

Besides taking care of classroom responsibilities, teachers have to wear many hats besides that of “educator”. From sports coach to art teacher, nurse, to referee, teachers definitely have their work cut out for them! And so we want to help ease their load by sharing some great podcasts especially created to help teachers out.

This may be a Valentine’s inspired post, but learning to love yourself is important at any time of the year!

Top Podcasts All About (Self) Love

Our post today highlights some of the top self-love podcasts to help you learn to love yourself (because you’re pretty amazing!) and in turn, love others better.

Top Feel-Good Podcasts

Whether it’s the decline of the economy, a worldwide pandemic, or the news of yet another politician serving anyone else but the people, there is A LOT to get us down. And don’t get me wrong. These are all very real, very serious issues we are all facing. But sometimes, we just need something to lift that heavy feeling and remind us that there is some good left in the world.

And when we need a little bit of upliftment, we turn to podcasts. We have a stash of our favorite feel-good shows stored on our podcast apps of choice to boost our spirits, brighten our days, and just give us a little bit of joy amongst all the bad that exists in the world.

The Best Podcasts to Help You Sleep

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how important sleep is. Not only does sufficient sleep improve our productivity and overall concentration, but studies have also shown that quality sleep can lower the risk of heart disease as well as strengthen our immune system.

But simply knowing how great a good night’s rest is for our minds and bodies does not guarantee that we get that sleep. In fact, on average, 30-35% of adults experience brief symptoms of insomnia throughout the course of their lives. So we’re sharing our current favorite podcasts guaranteed to whisk you away to Lala-Land and have you catching up on some quality zzz’s.
