As someone who is out of the house seven hours a day for five days of the week, it would be accurate to say that I am always on the go. Whether that be staying after school or having to attend doctor’s appointments, over the past year, I’ve had to teach myself how to multitask effectively. One way that I have been able to efficiently do this is by listening to something while I work. This could mean while taking my supplements, doing my homework, or even working out, I am being engaged audibly. 

I am not that person that likes to take strenuous tasks and stretch them over a long period of time, and instead, I focus on working smarter, not harder. Naturally, when I found something that could help me accomplish this, I didn’t have a second thought when taking a chance at listening to this podcast: The Mindset Mentor, available on Spotify and Apple Music. Led by a life coach named Rob Dial who focuses on creating a better mindset and finding our main focus in life, he encourages healthy behaviors.

When I first discovered this podcast, it was not on Spotify but on YouTube. One day, I was watching one of my favorite content creators, Jess Conte, who has over 2 million subscribers on her channel. Jess mentioned that she liked to listen to a podcast in her free time and that it helped her be more productive—therefore, I was influenced by her recommendation. The episodes of each podcast can vary between 30 minutes to an hour, and it ranks as #30 out of the top #100 on Spotify’s top charts. 

I only started to get into listening to podcasts around my freshman year of high school because I had to learn to accomplish things in a shorter amount of time. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from listening to something by ear, it’s that it can really stimulate the brain and lower your cortisol levels to decrease stress. 

The majority of the episodes that I listen to are focused on how one can make the most out of a day because every single person on this earth only has 24 hours to make the most of it, no more and no less. For example, one of the episodes that I listened to focused on how you can break up work time after coming home from work or school. One struggle that had been persistent throughout my life is consistency with almost anything that I do, so this was a very beneficial lesson.

One of the hacks that Rob Dial mentioned in his podcast was to use the “Pomodoro Technique”—a method used to prevent burnout and instead, work with time rather than against it. The way it is used is very simple: work for 25 minutes and then take a 5 minute break, and after doing this 4 times, take a 15-20 minute break. The science behind it is to essentially make study sessions short and concise so that one can work more efficiently but not make their brain as tired. The added benefits of using this hack can keep you motivated and help with making your memory stronger.

Compared to other podcasts that I have listened to, this podcast revolves around improving yourself one step at a time rather than people sharing their life stories and then giving personal advice on how to solve one’s problems. 

Apart from all of the benefits, my favorite part about listening to podcasts is that it doesn’t need your undivided attention and can be utilized in almost any location. Whether that be on a bus, at home, or even on a plane. This podcast would be a perfect fit for anyone who wants to make the best use of their time and find some guidance in their life.
