Welcome to episode 90 of The Mindful Kind podcast and the first episode of the new mini-series about life balance!

The first activity in this episode is the Wheel of Life exercise (originally created by Paul Meyer). You can easily download a template online, or create your own!

  • Brainstorm your most important life areas
  • Draw a circle and divide it into sections (like a pizza)- approximately 6-10 slices
  • Label the slices with life areas, such as relationships, self-care, work, finances etc
  • Colour in the slices depending on how satisfied you are with the corresponding life areas

Set goals based on your Wheel of Life to bring more balance into your life. For more inspiration about goal setting, listen to episodes 81-86 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

Remember that life balance isn't necessarily about splitting time equally! Being mindful can help us spend more quality time on our important life areas, while helping us realise when things have fallen out of balance. 

You can also journal to gain new perspectives on the balance in your life.

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.

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).
