Finding quality time to practice daily meditation techniques might not be easy in an ever-busy world we find ourselves in. The good news? You don’t need hours or even much experience to benefit from a daily practice of meditation.

Being able to bring awareness to your breath and refocus your attention on the present moment can help you manage stress, reduce anxiety, improve your breathing, and feel more energized; and meditation podcasts can help you with that.

These podcasts are filled with guided meditations, inspirational quotes, and expert interviews on topics related to yoga, health, stress, breathing, and so much more. Whatever your needs are, there is something for everyone in these top picks:

#1.Happy Place

The host of this podcast is Wim Hof, a man known for his superhuman feats of withstanding extreme temperatures, breaking world records, and running barefoot marathons over deserts and ice fields while maintaining a stable body temperature.

And even though he has been called controversial in his enthusiasm for cold showers, and controlled breathing to enhance general health and well-being, Wim rarely embraces the criticism of scientists and skeptics.

In this conversation with Fearne, The ‘Ice Man’ talks about the tragic circumstances that brought him to this epiphany – and the lives he has changed since then.
