ORLANDO, Fla. – A new year comes with new goals, and for every goal you set, there’s a podcast out there that can help you achieve it.

Maybe your New Year’s resolution is to get more physically fit, or maybe you’re looking to save money. Your resolution could even be as simple as making a resolution and actually sticking to it, which isn’t always actually that simple. Regardless of what you’ve set out to accomplish this year, there’s a podcast to be enjoyed during the next car ride that can help keep you motivated along the way.

Here are five podcasts to help you start your year on the right foot:

Health and wellness

Looking to eat better, sleep better or start and stick to a fitness routine? Dr. Rangan Chatterjee wants to help. As someone who has practiced medicine for nearly 20 years, Chatterjee believes he can break down everything you need to know to reach your optimal health, and he’s made it his mission, too.

“We have over complicated health, he says. “I want to simplify it.”

Chatterjee‘s podcast, “Feel Better, Live More,” focuses on four pillars of health: food, movement, sleep and relaxation.

According to his website, “Feel Better, Live More” is the No. 1 health podcast in the United Kingdom and regularly tops the iTunes charts.
