Escaping your own mind is often one of the best ways to refocus it, taking yourself away from the task at hand. Digital media and marketing jobs require much time spent in front of the computer screen so allow your mind to work in a different way, to simply relax and not actively do the thinking for 20 or 30 minutes; it could just be the reset button you need. Podcasts are a wonderful way to refocus and with so many to choose from as the podcast industry continues to boom in 2018, it doesn’t matter what your interests or preferences are, there really is something for everyone.
