Between romantic relationships, family and friendships, career and money goals and maintaining good mental and physical health – being a good human is a lot of effort, and sometimes asking your family and friends for advice can get tiring. This where self-help podcasts are a great alternative, like those of Brene Brown.
Many people are familiar with the podcasts, books and talks of professor, author and lecturer Brené Brown. However, she is not the only self-help podcast expert.
Here are five self-help podcasts to listen to if you love Brené Brown:
Happier with Gretchen Rubin
Gretchen Rubin, the bestselling author of The Happiness Project, presents the podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin. It’s lively, thought-provoking and offers practical, manageable advice about happiness and good habits to live by. It’s also quite similar to some of Brene Brown’s talks.
