Sometimes productivity can be hard to find, especially if you are experiencing burnout – and right now, it seems like a lot of people are feeling the burnout. COVID-19 has added an extra element of stress to everyone’s lives, and the ‘new normal’ can feel stressful at the best of times.
Luckily there is lots of productivity inspiration out there; you just need to know where to look. There are productivity apps and blogs to boost your motivation (such as ours!), but that isn’t all; productivity podcasts are also a useful asset.
This is because they are entertaining, useful and – most importantly – easy to consume. You can listen to them while you work out, or as you drive to work; whatever fits in with your lifestyle! But which podcasts are the most useful?
