I’ve been getting into podcasts lately as they’re free, simple, and potentially educational (depending on what you listen to). It’s easy to play a podcast on writing tips while I’m washing dishes, or to learn about new books to read while I get ready for school or work. Audio books are also great for the same reason! I can go about my life and still be learning.
One podcast I found during my initial exploration into the various topics people cover was Optimal Living Daily by Justin Malik. Justin scours the internet for blog posts that teach you how to optimize your life, and then reads them to you. This saves a lot of time for those of us who might be busy, or who just don’t want to spend our energy sifting through internet content that may or may not be worth reading. Most of the episodes are about 10 minutes long, with a couple going to 15 minutes. They’re brief, but you get the same benefit that you would from reading the posts.
Another thing I enjoy about the podcast is Justin’s personality. He adds a bit of his own life to the podcast, sharing thoughts on the particular topic he just read, but he uses his voice to highlight and emphasize the great information shared by the original author instead of overshadowing it. He’s brief, professional, and determined to make his podcast valuable to all the listeners.
If you like taking in new information about how to make your life a little better and more efficient, join Justin’s “Life Optimizers” and check out the show!
Note: I’m independently promoting this podcast and am not being paid for it. I just really like what I’ve found!
