Welcome to episode 84 of The Mindful Kind podcast about inspiring goal-setting activities, including vision boarding, vision journaling and using Pinterest!

Vision Boards

Use cork boards or poster boards as backgrounds and attach images of meaningful quotes, goals and ideas, living spaces you'd like to create, career ideas or mindfulness inspiration! 

Focus on one goal, or many!

Vision Journals

Use a small, blank book to document all of your goals, things you're grateful for, ideas for your future and whatever else you like.

Create a new page whenever you're feeling inspired and update your goals as they change!

A few things from my own vision journal include my favourite teas, yoga poses I'd like to do, a holiday I'd love to go on, inspiration for my book, things I've already accomplished, cafes I enjoy visiting and meaningful quotes. 

Pinterest

Basically, Pinterest is a huge, digital vision board! It's wonderful for inspiration and there are always new things you can find.

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.

Discover fun and interesting ways to set and work towards achieving your goals in episode 83 of The Mindful Kind podcast (and episode 3 of the Goal-Setting mini-series!). 

Tip 1 // Use an app to help you stay on track with your goals, such as the Balanced app. 

Tip 2 // Read a book about goals, such as The Desire Map by Danielle Laporte! This book encourages you and guides you to create goals based on how you want to feel. 

Tip 3 // Write down your "average perfect day" and use these notes to set realistic and meaningful goals. For example, if your average perfect day includes journaling, then set an achievable goal to bring more journaling into your life. 

Tip 4 // Create a bucket list and use this as inspiration to set goals, perhaps, using the SMART framework, or by using an app, or making a vision board.

Welcome to episode 82 of The Mindful Kind podcast and episode 2 in the Goal-Setting mini-series.

Discover how to recognise goals you don't actually control and tips for changing them to take better control (and feel more fulfilled by them!). 

For example,

A goal you don't control: Getting a promotion

Goals you do control: Getting your work done to a high standard, going to a leadership or assertiveness training and become better acquainted with your boss and colleagues. 

You'll find out why it's important to focus less on numbers in goals and more on effort. 

Also, don't forget to take the time to celebrate your goals!

Welcome to episode 81 of The Mindful Kind podcast, and the first episode of the Goal-Setting mini-series!

This episode is all about meaningful goals, mindfulness and being SMART. 

While goal setting isn't necessarily a mindful activity, we can bring elements of mindfulness into our goal setting practices (and I'll be sharing more about that over the next few episodes!). 

Discover what happened with my goals of saving for a trip, creating a podcast and improving my health. 

SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-based. 

For example, "my goal is to drink 1 litre of water each day using a drink bottle I'll keep at my desk and replace one glass of orange juice with a glass of water. I will start this goal tomorrow and continue for one month." 

Take the time to check in with how you feel about your goals for a mindful way to ensure your goals are aligned with you!

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind!

In episode 80 of The Mindful Kind podcast, discover more about being mindful during times of illness.

First of all, a quick apology for the sound of my voice! I know it isn't great as I have a cold at the moment, but I really wanted to share this episode:) 

Tips for being sick and practising mindfulness:

- Get plenty of sleep

- Eat and drink things which are good for your body during times of illness. Some of my go-tos include soup with veggies, plenty of water, garlic, orange juice, manuka honey (thanks to my friend, Miranda Partridge) and turmeric lattes (my favourite brand is Golden Grind).

- Do body scans to find where pain is located in your body so you can take care of it with a massage, hot water bottle, or gentle stretches. 

- Try not being mindful! Use distractions like movies, tv and books to help painful times pass.
