I love podcasts because it takes virtually no energy to listen to them, and the benefits can be immense. Plus, you can listen to them anywhere, anytime. When you consider the convenience of podcasts combined with relevant and interesting information, there’s no reason not to load up a few of your favorites as you go about your weekend activities.

Not sure where to start? Here are a few of my favorites so you can take a passive approach to work this weekend (and start Monday with some tips and advice to put into practice).
