Podcast cover
Read more

Hello and welcome to episode 110 of The Mindful Kind podcast, featuring ten tips to help you start the New Year more mindfully!

Tip 1 is to wake up in the morning and before you jump out of bed, just absorb the moment.

Tip 2 is to do a journaling practice. You could listen to episode 40 of The Mindful Kind podcast, called Mindful Journaling, for more ideas on this if you like, but a simple technique is just to get a blank page and try to let your thoughts flow on to it. 

Tip 3 is to eat something mindfully. 

Tip 4 is to set yourself a goal (you might like to listen to the goal setting series of the podcast starting from episode 81) and then every time you work towards that goal, do so mindfully. 

Tip 5 is to do a body scan. 

Tip 6 is to use a breathing technique. 

Tip 7 is to stretch your body. 

Tip 8 is to mindfully nourish your body with water. 

Tip 9 is to use an aromatic mindfulness tool, for example, a candle, a meal, beauty products, dishwashing liquid (as you wash the dishes), or flowers.

Tip 10 is to use an affirmation.

I hope you have a wonderful start to the New Year!

Rank #8: #196: The Mindful Kind // Self-Care Versus Self-Sabotage

Podcast cover
Read more

Hello and welcome to episode 196 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

I recently received an insightful email from the lovely Lauren, who was curious to know my thoughts on self-care versus making excuses. 

In this episode, you'll discover three helpful ideas for engaging in self-care in meaningful and effective ways - without self-sabotage or using self-care as an excuse.

  • Decide what self-care really means to you and use this to navigate your self-care practices
  • Become more aware of all-or-nothing cognitive distortions (which you can learn more about on episode 182 of The Mindful Kind podcast called Cognitive Distortions)
  • Remember that sometimes, self-care can actually be difficult. It can involve choosing to do something good for yourself (or your future self) even when you may not necessarily feel like it. You can learn more about this in my book, The Mindful Kind: https://www.rachaelkable.com/themindfulkindbook

Podcast cover

Hello and welcome to episode 131 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, you'll discover three components of emotions, including:

  • A subjective component, which is the unique experience of emotions from person to person
  • A physiological component, which involves the physical sensations of emotions, and 
  • A cognitive component, which is about how we interpret and label emotions. I also share "misattribution of arousal" which is the inaccurate labelling of emotions.

To mindfully explore emotions, try to identify the subjective, physiological and cognitive components of your emotions (without judging anything you might notice).

Rank #18: #89: The Mindful Kind // Cultivating Self Worth

Podcast cover

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
