From mindfulness and relaxing music, to digital detoxes and body positivity, there is a wealth of great things to immerse yourself in and listen to while working in isolation.

When work deadlines start piling up and it feels like years since you’ve had a holiday, your mind can become increasingly frazzled. It’s important to slow down, take a deep breath and unplug from the demands of life.

Instead, when you’re feeling increasingly stressed, why not plug into a podcast? Here are our current top listens to help you switch off and reconnect with yourself.

 

We Are Offline by Alyss Bowen and Lotte Williams

Do you find yourself obsessively scrolling through social media? Have you ever accidentally liked your ex’s new partner’s post from 2015? Then this is the podcast for you. We Are Offline is brought to you by social media editors (and self-confessed Instagram addicts) Alyss Bowen and Lotte Williams, who are on a mission to open up the conversation around our digital dependency, so that we can all start scrolling more mindfully.

We Are Offline is available on Acast, Apple Podcast and Player.fm

The Confidence Corner by Callie Thorpe

Instagram star Callie Thorpe decided to switch off her phone and turn on the recorder to share her stories and others about body positivity. This podcast focuses on the importance of confidence, how we get it, how we lose it and how we keep it.

Each week Callie will chat to guests from all walks of life to ask them about their experience of confidence across a broad range of topics including body image, motherhood, wellbeing and careers.

The Confidence Corner is available at calliethorpe.com/the-confidence-corner

Soul Music by BBC

This is a lovely podcast from BBC Radio 4. Each episode explores one song and what it means to different people around the world. It looks at the powerful, emotional impact music can have on people.

It comes out fairly sporadically, but it is a very soothing listen when it does. Try out the Waterloo Sunset episode focusing on the Kinks’ hit number – very relaxing.

Soul Music is available on BBC Sounds

Classic FM by Global

Classical music can be the perfect accompaniment to meditation, mindfulness and yoga. Since the beginning of history, humans have used music as an aid to meditation, prayer and yoga: from Gregorian chants written 500 years ago, to Arvo Pärt’s haunting minimalist music written just a few years ago.

You can listen to these soothing pieces alongside thousands of other relaxing tunes on Classic FM – they have a top 1,000 playlist to help you narrow it down.

Available at classicfm.com

Untangle by Meditation Studio

As well as mindfulness, podcasts are a great way to try out other forms of meditation. For instance, there’s the Untangle podcast. It focuses on real people who have used meditation to change their lives, as well as experts who want to help others learn and practise meditation.

One recent episode is a chat with Leora Fulvio, a therapist and mindfulness teacher. She discusses the importance of understanding our relationship with food and offers insights into mindful eating versus mindless eating.

Untangle is available on podcasts.apple.com/untangle
