Podcast cover
Read more

Hello and welcome to episode 144 of The Mindful Kind podcast! In this episode, you'll discover 3 tips to cope you cope with rejection mindfully and some interesting research about rejection. 

For example, a study by Kirsten Weir in 2012 found that rejection causes the brain's pain receptors to respond as though the body has been physically injured. 

Here are the 3 tips for coping with rejection mindfully:

  • Acknowledge how you're feeling non-judgementally and give yourself space to process those feelings
  • Slow the spiral of negative thoughts by using mindfulness techniques, such as doing a body scan or mindful breathing
  • Learn from rejection in meaningful and positive ways

It can also be important to remember that you're not alone in feeling rejection - many of us have been there and will experience it again in the future! If you need extra support, you might like to speak with a trusted friend, chat with a counsellor or psychologist, or call a Helpline. 

Thank you so much for listening and I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.

Rank #7: #89: The Mindful Kind // Cultivating Self Worth

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to episode 89 of The Mindful Kind podcast about cultivating self-worth. 

This episode is a follow on from episode 87 of The Mindful Kind about dealing with challenging relationships. Something I talked about was how building self-worth can help us deal with relationships and I thought I would dive a little deeper into that in this episode!

First of all, you'll hear some of my own experiences with having low self-worth and why I decided I wanted to improve it.

I mentioned some books which I found really insightful and helpful on this journey, including:

- The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown

- Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed

- Quiet by Susan Cain

- You can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay

Here are my two top tips for improving self-worth:

TIP 1 // Stop outsourcing your self-worth

Look at how you might be outsourcing your self-worth and choose instead to appreciate your personality, choices, individuality etc. 

TIP 2 // Use affirmations

Affirmations help us train our brains to think in new and more positive ways. For a great resource, check out Louise Hays website at: www.louisehay.com

My latest interview was on the Live Immediately podcast with Mike Campbell (episode 49).

Podcast cover

Hello and welcome to episode 202 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, you'll hear about my own experiences with learning how to appreciate the little things in life. Before practising mindfulness, I often felt caught up in my thoughts and distracted from the present moment. Over time, mindfulness has taught me so much about noticing and appreciating little moments.

Here are 5 simple ways you can appreciate some small, yet meaningful, moments in your everyday life. 

1: Notice the warmth of the water when you take a shower

2: Play your favourite song and listen to it like you're hearing it for the last time and you want to remember everything about it

3: Tune in to your sense of smell when you're drinking a hot drink

4: Spend time consciously appreciating nature

5: Find your own favourite mindful moments in your everyday life
