Lately, it seems as though everywhere we turn, we are confronted with heart-shaped chocolates, long-stemmed roses, and fluffy teddy bears with their arms reached out. This can only mean one thing: Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Whether you are on the train to Single Town, or happily loved up, Valentine’s Day is a great reminder to incorporate more self-love into our daily lives.

There’s no denying that we can be hard on ourselves from time to time, so practising self-love can be a little easier said than done. However, thanks to the increasing popularity of podcasts, showing ourselves more love and thinking positively can be done on the daily. This is why we’ve put together a list of our favourite podcasts to encourage self-love. So, say goodbye to those negative thoughts and start listening to some of our favourite inspiring, self-love promoting podcasts pronto!

Offline, The Podcast

Hosted by award-winning Australian journalist and digital pioneer Alison Rice, Offline examines the concept of ‘true self’. In each episode, Alison hosts conversations with inspiring Australian women about how they distinguish their online presence between the notion of true-self. In her own words, Alison describes Offline as, “honest conversations with the women behind our favourite Instagram accounts about life on the other side of the filter, exploring the often confronting concept of true self. The conversations are raw, imperfect, and grounded in reality.” Alison’s velvet voice is incredibly soothing, and each episode re-fuels us for our self-love journey.

Happier with Gretchen Rubin

Gretchen Rubin’s credential list is rather impressive, so we are all ears when it comes to her thought-provoking, happiness-boosting podcast. Before becoming a best-selling author of The Happiness Project, Gretchen worked as a clerk for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor – impressive! Happier is a must-listen for anyone who wants to learn how to instill good habits and happiness into their everyday lives, and let’s be real, who doesn’t? If you aren’t already convinced to take a listen, Happier won ‘best podcast’ awards in 2015 and 2016.

Girlboss Radio

If you’ve heard of the clothing label Nasty Gal, then chances are you’ve heard of Sophie Amoruso. Sophie began her clothing label at the age of 22 and quickly watched as Nasty Gal became one of the fastest growing companies. After being in business for over 10 years now, Sophie learnt a thing or two about success and failure after Nasty Gal went bankrupt. Sophie’s podcast Girlboss Radio is a strand of her successful Girlboss Media company and features conversations with various women who have made their mark on society through hard work and by being their authentic selves. Girlboss Radio features a variety of high-profile guests who understand the importance of self-love in order to propel their goals.

The Fringe Of It

The Fringe Of It was created by two bloggers, Liv Purvis and Charlotte Jackson after they struggled to navigate their way through millennial life. Although Liv and Charlotte are two mid-twenty-something ladies, the self-confessed, ‘out of touch early grandmas’ provide a lot of useful information to help listeners soul-search. Our favourite episodes? ‘Discussing confidence and comparison’ and ‘discussing life lessons and advice’.
