7 Conscious Living Podcasts to Expand Your Perspective on the World - Prosperity Candle Blog

Living consciously doesn't have to mean a major lifestyle makeover. It's more about appreciating the little things and taking note of how your choices impact others.

To be totally honest, we don't really know what it takes to live a conscious life. There are lots of writings and practices out there, all of which are interesting but sometimes hard to wrap your arms around. Perhaps it's just trying to be more aware of yourself and others. Maybe conscious living is making sure the aspects of life that really matter don't roar past you.

One easy way to dip your toes into what living a more conscious life means is to listen to a podcast. During a walk or on your daily commute, you can hear inspiring stories about people and the world, and gain insights into how others are discovering conscious living for themselves, intentionally or totally by accident.

There are , of course, a zillion great podcasts out there. But here are a few that take a fresh approach. Each episode brings you interesting people making positive changes in all kinds of ways. The hosts are engaging storytellers who know how to approach sensitive topics and make them entertaining and accessible. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
