5 Podcasts Worth Listening To


Podcasts are great if you are looking for some entertainment beside cable T.V, Netflix, and YouTube. Give it a try. It could be exactly what you need and you may not even know it. This list is just a few favorites I have been listening to lately.

The Visit with Dr. Arabia Mollette

I love the straight-forward medical advice from this N.Y doc. She is a fun & energetic emergency medicine doctor who discusses topics such as health, fitness, relationships and more! Guests from NYC and around the globe help answer challenging health questions and concerns. After one episode, you will be hooked.

Laila Ali Lifestyle

This former boxer has recently expanded her broad range of talents, becoming a health and wellness inspiration. Of course, she is well known for her boxing career and some may even know her from the t.v. show Dancing with the Stars. Her podcasts highlight reputable people in the industry.

Dear Sugar

Cheryl Strayed and Steve Allman are an excellent duo.  Cheryl is a best-selling author of several books and has even been mentioned in Oprah’s book club! This flawless pairing from a couple who are not intimate with each other is unique and amazing. Originating from a successful advice column, this podcast is here to stay.

The Friend Zone

Fran, Dustin, and Asante are three friends who have come together to discuss real topics in an entertaining and practical way. They chat about current events in pop culture, health & wellness tips, new music, reality T.V. I have been listening to this podcast for over a year now.  Lately, on Wednesday, I enjoy my routine where I take my son to his sports program and sit and listen to The Friend Zone in the while he plays.

The 5am Miracle 

Jeff Sanders has been podcasting for over four years and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. He’s had guests on his show like Lisa Gray and Deepak Chopra. Productivity is the main focus of his discussions. He offers lifelong habits and tip & strategies to get you excited for life.


Motivation Monday – You’re Allowed!

You’re allowed to leave any story you don’t find yourself in.
You’re allowed to leave any story you don’t love yourself in.

You’re allowed to leave a city that has dimmed your light instead of making you shine brighter, you’re allowed to pack all your bags and start over somewhere else, and you’re allowed to redefine the meaning of your life.

You’re allowed to quit the job you hate even if the world tells you not to and you’re allowed to search for something that makes you look forward to tomorrow and to the rest of your life.

You’re allowed to leave someone you love if they’re treating you poorly, you’re allowed to put yourself first if you’re settling, and you’re allowed to walk away when you’ve tried over and over again but nothing has changed.

You’re allowed to let toxic friends go, you’re allowed to surround yourself with love and people who encourage and nurture you. You’re allowed to pick the kind of energy you need in your life.

You’re allowed to forgive yourself for your biggest and smallest mistakes, and you’re allowed to be kind to yourself, You’re allowed to look in the mirror and actually like the person you see. 

You’re allowed to set yourself free from your own expectations.

We sometimes look at the leaving as a bad thing or associate it with giving up or quitting, but sometimes leaving is the best thing you can do for yourself.

Leaving allows you to change directions, to start over, to rediscover yourself and the world. Leaving sometimes saves you from staying stuck in the wrong place with the wrong people.

Leaving opens a new door for change, growth, opportunities, and redemption.

You always have the choice to leave until you find where you belong and what makes you happy.

You’re even allowed to leave the old you behind and reinvent yourself.
