Podcast’s are my Therapy – 7 episodes to suit each mood

I’ve been listening to some of my past episodes of #conversationsofinspiration – selecting the guest that best sits with my mood or how I’m feeling at the time – be it happy, confused or even stressed. It’s really been helping me switch off and get perspective so I thought I’d share these episodes with you all!

It’s so important to get outside each day at the moment, for some fresh air and (hopefully) sunshine on your face. Pop on your favourite episode and take in the beauty that surrounds you as you walk.
