If ever there were a time for the practice of self-care to take center stage, this is it. Although I don't make resolutions, I am trying to do less scrolling and news watching these days. I started a new morning routine that I am enjoying immensely, and that seems to start my day off on a better note. Rather than stay in bed and watch the news or scroll through social media, I get up, drink some water, make some coffee, and sit down with a cozy blanket and my pups.
While I sip my coffee in the silence of the morning, I listen to a few favorite podcasts. The first is a daily prayer podcast called Catholic Morning Offering that I recently discovered. It begins with prayers followed by a daily devotion, scripture readings, the saint of the day, and ending with final prayers. After that, I listen to The Daily Poem, a wonderful podcast that presents a poem written by the greats like William Shakespeare, Robert Frost, and John Milton to name a few each weekday. The entire podcast is usually less than six or seven minutes, but so enjoyable and educational.
I finish off my morning time with a true crime fix. Another short podcast I enjoy is Morning Cup of Murder. Each day, the host shares a true crime that occurred on that particular day. She encourages you to share a cup of coffee with her while you listen to the details of a crime she has researched. I like this one so much, I actually purchased a sweatshirt with the logo on it! Yes. I really did.
I also added one final podcast I am enjoying, although this one I usually listen to before bed. It is called Suspense ~Old Time Radio. I love this one! It is a radio drama that aired in the 1940s and 1950s featuring stars of the day. Perfect for someone who likes to pretend she lives in the 1950s, right?
Ending with a cute puppy pic. Because. Cute puppy.
Do you have any favorite podcasts?
