Welcome to episode 79 of The Mindful Kind podcast!

First of all, here is the link to my very first video blog (yay!): https://youtu.be/67cAY43AtNQ

I would love to hear if you enjoy watching it!

The topic for this episode is about being a helping person. Here are a few volunteering experiences I've had which changed my life for the better:

- Volunteering at my local nursing home and become friends with the people there

- Spending a few days at a wildlife shelter

- Being a Helpline volunteer at the Anxiety Recovery Centre (where I really learned to embrace mindfulness)

There are many different ways mindfulness can help us be more helping people, such as mindfully listening to those around us and creating space for others to feel heard and supported. 

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind!

Welcome to episode 78 of The Mindful Kind podcast about creativity and mindfulness!

Here are a few of my favourite creative activities:

Mindful colouring: Using the app called "Recolour"

Photography: Engage with the world around you and perhaps, even collect props for photo styling, such as leaves and op-shop items! If you would like to follow me on Instagram, you can find me @rachaelkable

Creative thinking and problem-solving: Create a date day, make a new dinner, buy something interesting or put together a new outfit!

Top 5 tips for creativity:

1 // Let go of judgement

2 // Be inspired by other people, rather than making comparisons

3 // Meditate when you're feeling stuck

4 // Teach yourself to perceive creativity as an opportunity, or an adventure

5 // Engage in new activities and different experiences mindfully

Books I've loved about creativity: "Big Magic" by Elizabeth Gilbert and "Craft for the Soul" by Pip Lincolne. 

You can find the Creative Summit which will run from 22nd May - 24th May here: https://summit.creativityexperts.com/invite-rachaelkable

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.

Hello and welcome to episode 77 of The Mindful Kind podcast!

In this episode, discover more about stress management, meditation and healthy living tips. 

For the full wrap up blog post (including useful resources and links) head to www.rachaelkable.com/podcast/meditation-and-healthy-living

Tip 1 // Prioritise sleep and create good sleeping habits

A simple meditation to use at night is to visualise waves breaking over the beach, inhaling as the waves go out and exhaling as the waves roll in. 

Tip 2 // Engage in self-care

Take a bath, read a book, get a massage, or use self-care tools (such as a body scrub or hair mask!). 

A breathing technique to try during self-care practices is inhaling for three counts, holding for two counts and exhaling for four counts. 

Tip 3 // Nourish your physical body with healthy foods, water and movement (remembering to eat and drink mindfully!). 

Tip 4 // Have fun! Go on adventures, spend time with loved ones and do your favourite hobbies. Try laughter meditation or affirmations for fun meditation practices.

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind!
