Slow Down and Listen to These 5 Uplifting Local Podcasts

Do you ever feel like bustling toward a pile of deadlines? Or it's been months—if not years—since you've had a holiday? Do you feel like caving into all the stressors and raising the mortifying white flag? 

Nowadays, it's a challenge to take a big deep breath and decompress everyday life's demands—considering “new normal” struggles amplified by heaps of social and political issues hovering around us. But regardless of all this, we can't emphasize enough how important it is to slow down and unplug from everything that's been bugging you. 

In this blog, we've rounded up five local podcasts to help you relax and feel inspired, whether you're a home buddy or gladiator in a suit. Want to make this pampering experience extra special? Why not tie it with our array of fragrances from our Well Living Collection?
