Boredom Buster: Podcasts To Keep Life Interesting

Podcast post

Fed up with listening to the radio during my peak hour commute (lame jokes, too many ads, not enough music), I have recently started listening to podcasts. I feel like I am majorly late to the podcast party. The little purple icon has been on my iPhone since … well, three iPhones ago, and I never bothered to open the app. And now I have, my list of things to listen to grows and grows. There is a treasure trove of interesting stuff behind that purple square!

April: Read, Watch, Go, Do

I know it’s such a cliche to say this, but last month went extremely quickly. Sadly, I wasn’t as productive as I hoped to be and quite a few of my goals weren’t met (practising Italian every day on Duolingo and hanging pictures around the house). BUT I did manage to complete a couple of my other goals! One was to make a cocktail (which I did when I put together a batch of Sangria) and another was to try a new recipe. Not only did I make bagels from scratch last month but I also made the most delicious blueberry and peanut butter chia puddings. Having never had chia pudding before I was delighted by how tasty and moreish it was. Looking ahead, I’m glad that the stress and overindulgence of Easter is over and I look forward to having a bit more time to get stuff done (fingers crossed). Check out the April book and movie releases that I am looking forward to, Melbourne events that I want to go to and a few personal goals that I will hopefully meet this month.

5 Ways To Embrace Your Inner Child

Sometimes being an adult sucks. You know it, I know it, those clever people who created and marketed adult colouring books know it. Some of the best and happiest years of my life occurred as a child. Carefree. Worry-free. Debt-free. Those were the good old days. While I can’t go back, unless I somehow score a DeLorean time machine, I can attempt to relive those carefree happy days by acting like a kid again.

So the next time the weight of the world is getting you down, try some of these activities to embrace your inner child. You’ll feel better in no time!

What’s up, March? You sure did come around quickly. I’m looking ahead at all the books, movies and Melbourne events that are coming up in March. I’m also setting some monthly goals (eek!) in an attempt to make the most out of every day. I figure if I write it down here that will make me somewhat accountable and I will (hopefully) achieve some of my goals. Check it out below and let me know what you think in the comments 🙂
