Traveler Tips

Traveling alone isn’t always the most enticing proposition. It isn’t uncommon to feel lonely in a new city or to simply be bored because you don’t have anyone to engage with along the way.

Luckily, relieving feelings of boredom doesn’t have to be challenging. Thanks to the wide array of podcasts available, you can turn your adventure into a learning experience.

Whether you are hitting the road on your way to one of the new traveling therapist jobs that are available or are just wandering through a new city, here are five podcasts worth checking out.

School of Greatness

Hosted by Lewis Howes, a New York Times bestselling author, entrepreneur, world record holder, and former professional athlete, this podcast explores “greatness” by interviewing some of the most influential people in the world today. Additionally, Lewis Howes produces some solo podcasts, allowing him to impart his wisdom to his listeners.

The podcast isn’t just business-oriented. Instead, it focuses on self-development as well, including everything from managing anxiety to why you should let passion play a big role in your life.

The Robin Sharma Mastery Sessions

Robin Sharma, an author and leadership speaker, focuses on how a person can master various aspects of their professional and personal life. The short clips focus on individual topics, such as how to improve one’s habits to achieve greater levels of success.

The content is equal parts inspiring and motivating, making it an excellent option for anyone who wants to increase their confidence in the ability to thrive.

The Good Life Project

If you are looking for tips on how you can live your best life, The Good Life Project is a podcast dedicated to the concept. Host Jonathan Fields focuses on personal development while integrating systems that can help a person improve with relative ease.

Kwik Brain

A unique podcast, Kwik Brain doesn’t focus on traditional self-improvement topics. Instead, it concentrates on techniques that can help you become a more effective learner, allowing you to apply the knowledge to any topic of interest.

Jim Kwik, the show’s host, has trained a variety of CEOs and celebrities but is more than happy to share his tips with his listeners, making the information accessible to the masses.


From The Happiness Project author, Gretchen Rubin, the Happier podcast focuses on just what the title suggests: happiness. Gretchen Rubin has embraced her lifelong mission of making the world a happier place, and she shares her insights and findings to help anyone live a more satisfying life.

All of the podcasts listed above are great options for anyone who find themselves bored while they are on an assignment. Plus, they can help you live your best life, allowing you to improve personally and professionally while you explore a new city.
