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). 

Thank you so much for listening and I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind!

Hello and welcome to episode 128 of The Mindful Kind podcast about low frustration tolerance. 

In this episode, you'll discover what low frustration tolerance is, how it contributes to stress and some mindful strategies for increasing your frustration tolerance, including:

  • Acknowledging thoughts in challenging situations without having to believe them (thoughts may include "I can't deal with this, I can't handle this, or I can't get through this")
  • Challenging those negative thoughts with truthful facts, such as "I've been through a similar situation before and I know I can get through this"
  • Taking some deep breaths or practising mindfulness to support yourself through difficult situations and feelings of frustration 
  • Allowing yourself to feel however you need to feel without judgement
  • Noticing if there's anything you can be grateful for in that difficult moment

In this episode, you'll also hear a meditation called The Point of Stillness which begins at 5.40 minutes. 

Thank you for listening and I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind!
