With everything going on in the world, it is important to not dwell on the negatives but to appreciate the positives. 

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, there have been several positives we’ve forgotten about. We’re able to spend more time with our loved ones while in self-isolation, and we’re focusing on our health and wellbeing more than ever before. There’s even been a decrease in carbon emissions.  

If you have been asked to self-isolate or you just enjoy spending time at home, here are five fabulous podcasts that are perfect for listening to while snuggled up with a cuppa!
