Hello and welcome to episode 104 of The Mindful Kind podcast and the fourth episode in the communication mini-series. 

This episode is all about encouraging others to communicate by:

  • Creating supportive environments

Hello and welcome to episode 103 of The Mindful Kind podcast and the third episode in the mini-series about communication!

In this episode, I've shared all my top tips for public speaking (by the way, I was terrified of public speaking for a really long time!).

1 // Feel whatever you need to feel and try to be non-judgemental

2 // Make decisions in advance (such as what you'll wear, how you'll travel to the event etc)

3 // Prepare for the possibility of forgetting your words

4 // Use memory tools, such as note cards, slides, or a workbook

5 // Use a mnemonic device

6 // Include interactive sections

7 // Start with something simple to talk about

8 // Use your hands

9 // Make eye contact

10 // Don't worry if people aren't paying attention

11 // Breathe

12 // Exercise the morning of your presentation

13 // Remember that you probably don't appear as nervous as you feel

14 // Balance out negative thoughts with positive thoughts

15 // Know that what you say matters!

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind!

Hello and welcome to episode 102 of The Mindful Kind podcast!

This is the second episode of the mini-series about communication, so if you haven't already, you might like to listen to the episode 101 for an introduction to communication. 

In this episode, you'll discover more about assertiveness, including:

Tip 1 // See the situation from another person's perspective and notice if it would actually be helpful for you to share your real opinion.

Tip 2 // Know that it's ok to change your mind. 

Tip 3 // Try not to take it personally if someone doesn't respond well to your assertiveness. 

Tip 4 // Be assertive as soon as possible to avoid over-thinking it.

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.
