At Uncommon, we value making your working day be as effective as possible. We curate bespoke playlists to fit a particular space or time of day at our workspaces.
Sometimes, you just want to transfer your mind to a calmer place. As a result, you feel revamped and inspired to carry on with your day constructively and productively. What better way to do this than to listen to something uplifting?
Podcasts give us the opportunity to stimulate our minds, to explore topics of interest, to become active listeners and to pay better attention. Perhaps you’re multi-tasking away or maybe you need some inspiration for a work project; they’re efficient in the background in any scenario.
Here are some of our wellbeing podcast recommendations.
