Mental Health Monday: Helpful Podcast Episodes #1

I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts during the lockdown, especially anything from the self-improvement genre. I’ve become a big fan of Hal Elrod lately and today I will be talking about a podcast episode that has helped me in spades lately.

Mental Health Podcasts I’ve Been Enjoying! #1

I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts while I write, clean and other commitments. I’ve found a fair few mental health podcasts whilst I’ve browsed Spotify, so I figure I share my favourites!

These podcasts are a good source of information, but are not a substitute for therapy.

The Minimalist Podcast: Habits

I was playing Minecraft recently after a non-productive day, so I decided that I’d listen to a podcast I had on the back burner for a while. I’d put off writing for a while since my Grammarly premium trial had run out. I’m not the best when it comes to punctuation, so I figured it wouldn’t be good enough.

The topic of the episode caught my attention, it was about habits, and they had the author of Atomic Habits, James Clear on and what I listened to was very insightful and full of helpful information. I find it extremely hard to make new habits, I’m unfortunately the type of person who will go into something full steam, it would not work out as I envisioned it and I would give up on it. It’s a frustrating thing to contend with, I am actively seeking ways to better myself, but there has never been a gray area with me. I’m either 100% into something, or not at all. 
I feel like this is my fear of failure and a feeling of having to be perfect at all I do preventing me doing what I should be doing. 


The podcast resonated with me on such a deep level and I felt the advice was something I needed to hear for the longest time. From now on, when I start new and better hobbies I will start implementing them slowly as to not overwhelm myself like I would in the past. 
Another aspect of the podcast that stuck out to me was a caller talking about wanting to a writer, but she didn’t think she was a writer. This was my mentality when I started this blog, I even mentioned this earlier. I would think “This isn’t good enough, I am not good at this. I’m not a writer”, which in itself is a silly thought process. Sure, some people are naturally gifted when it comes to writing, but others will learn as they go. 

Unlike other interests/jobs or whatever, to be a writer, you just have to do the writing part. You don’t need to go to school for the tools to get started. You won’t be perfect at it over night, but as you keep writing, things get easier and you’ll become more confident. I’m also going to try sticking to a schedule from now on and dedicate time to write posts. I’m aiming for a Monday and Friday post schedule, if it doesn’t work, this is fine. I will get there in the end.
