The Best Girls Motivational Podcasts I've Listened To!

If I’m being honest, I wasn’t really a podcast listener until this past year. I asked a few of my friends to recommend which ones they listen to or what they’re favorites were, then I found some more on my own! The most podcasts that I listen to are mainly related to motivation and lifestyle which I find incredibly helpful and interesting to listen to! What I like most when listening to podcasts is that I am able to put myself in someone else’s shoes and think about what I would do in their situations. I also enjoy hearing their advice and relating it back to my life!

There are multiple podcasts that I listen to, but most of them relate back to the lifestyles of girls around the same age as me, giving motivational advice and tips. These are some of the main ones that I listen to, but there are so many more out there!

  1. 1. Gals on the Go

    I cannot say enough amazing things about this podcast to be specific! For one, this was the first podcast that I ever listened to after hearing my friends talk so highly about it! It’s run by two girls, Brooke Miccio and Danielle Carolan, who first started their platforms on YouTube 10 years ago, and now they co-host this podcast together! When they started the podcast, they were both college students, which I found really interesting because the topics they would talk about tied into the events going on in my life! Along with talking about things going on in the world, the media, and pop culture they also provide amazing advice and heart to heart conversations! Whenever I’m in need of a pick me up, this podcast is always a sure-fire way of lifting my spirits and getting me motivated to get things done

  2. 2. The Grind and Be Grateful

    Another podcast that is always a great listen is The Grind and Be Grateful, run by Marie Wold! Her biggest message within the podcast is to educate and empower women in the terms of working on becoming their best selves! Whenever she talks about personal development or wellness, I feel so inspired to truly work hard on myself, and focus on my goals above everything else! Marie also talks about the entrepreneurial aspect of life, since she is a fitness influencer and coach and she helps girls realize that they are worth so much more than they see sometimes. Her message in terms of grinding and being grateful is so empowering for me because I see it as, if you put the work into the grind of whatever you’re currently doing in life there is always something to be grateful for.

  3. 3. Pretty Basic

    This podcast is also one of the first ones that I began listening to! The two hosts are Alisha Marie and Remy Cruz are also initially both from the YouTube platform, and created this podcast as co-hosts! When I was younger, I watched some of Alisha’s videos, so hearing her again talking about the next stages in her life is so interesting! Their podcast overall is full of information, motivation and of course the tea!!! They aren’t afraid to share their life stories and experiences, by hearing them open up about things that have happened in their lives makes it so much easier to listen and understand them. I love hearing their motivational tips especially when they feel like they get stuck in a rut, because it always helps me to get out of whatever funk I might be in and get back to my normal self! You will never run out of content between the topics these two girls are talking about!

  4. 4. Real Pod

    Lastly, but certainly not least, the Real Pod hosted by Victoria Garrick is nothing short of incredible and inspirational. She is a mental health and body-image advocate who shares her stories of life as well as brings in guests to share their opinions on hardships that they’ve had, and how they’ve overcome some tough situations in their lives. As well as giving the best motivational advice, she talks about everything from success to failure related to life and all the challenges it throws at us! She always shares a positive message in whatever she talks about, and gives the best inspiration to be yourself as well as motivates listeners to love who they are no matter what! This podcast is one of my new favorite listens, because it always makes me think and gives me so much to be grateful for!

Everyone may have their own tastes when it comes to listening to podcasts, but these are some of my favorites that I’ve been hooked on! I love hearing stories that I can use to relate back to my life, as well as incorporate into my life experiences! There’s never a moment that I don’t need extra motivation to get things done (especially in terms of school) and all of these lovely ladies never fail to help with that! Go give these amazing podcasts a listen to learn more lifestyle tips and to get yourself motivated!
