If you’re an entrepreneur, it’s important to keep up with industry trends and news — but you’re also probably short on time, so reading the latest book or tuning into a news segment isn’t first priority on your list. An easy and accessible way to stay connected (even on the go) is by listening to podcasts. Whether you’re driving, cleaning, organizing, planning, commuting or simply need to go hands-free, listening to a wellness podcast is a great way to stay up-to-date and up-level your business acumen.
These wellness podcasts tackle everything from inside looks at successful wellness businesses to how to be a little happier. Here are some of our favorites.

In this long-running podcast, host Amanda Cook’s show focuses on how to take care of yourself and your business as an entrepreneur, so that you can lead the lifestyle you’re promoting to your clients.

Successful health coaches Karen Pattock and Kathleen Legrys host this show that unites what they call the heart-centered side (wanting to change the world) with the business side of your venture.

If you’re looking for the latest trends

If you’re looking for happiness hacks
Listen to Happier with Gretchen Rubin:
We believe a large part of wellness is your emotional health. Author of The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin hosts this podcast on doable happiness hacks like getting out in the morning sunlight. Her “Little Happier” episodes — two to three minutes — focus on bite-sized suggestions like looking at willpower differently. So much of business advice focuses on how much you can achieve, but this show looks at what you can do for yourself.
If you’re looking for advice from successful entrepreneurs
Listen to The Business of Wellness:
We know that sometimes running a business can be really isolating, and you feel like you’re working in a bubble. Consider this your virtual watercooler.
