Here at FINDRA, we’re always looking to bring you snippets of motivation to get you inspired. With everyone restricted to our homes for now, we’re changing our focus to ways we can all stay motivated and happy at home.
Enriching The Mind
Audio documentaries have been around a while, especially with platforms like Radio 4 and BBC World Service, but once the iPod was invented in the mid-2000s, the podcast market began to grow. Being able to listen to informative or entertaining audio shows on the go widened the market to a new generation of people who want to absorb as much information as possible. You can find a podcast on just about any subject by now – from true-crime to economic discussions to fishing. Anything.
At FINDRA, Helen and Susan are avid podcasts listeners, so here are the top 5 podcasts they recommend, and also how to get started if you’re new to the podcast game!
Enriching The Body
To complement our one daily outdoor activity, have you tried yoga at home?
With so many online videos and courses you can do from the comfort of your very own living room, now is the perfect time to get into the swing of yoga and enrich your body as well as your mind.
In 2018, we asked then-brand ambassador Polly Clark to tell us what the benefits of yoga are and why, whatever stage of life you’re at, yoga will benefit you.
For a great introduction to home yoga, have you tried the YouTube channel, Yoga with Adriene? With nearly 6.5 million subscribers to her channel and over 500 yoga videos to try, you’re in great company striking that downward dog in front of the sofa.
Music of the Week
We’re building a FINDRA Community Playlist over on Spotify, bringing you music of a rather eclectic variety! From classic dance tunes to lesser-known indie songs, we hope there’s something new in there for you. If you’ve got a favourite you’d like to hear in the playlist, drop us a tweet!
If you try putting this tune by Talking Heads on loud and open your windows, there’s no way you won’t be singing and dancing. Definitely a song to lift your spirits!
Whatever you’re up to this week, dear friends, take care.
Love, Team FINDRA x
