  • How do you build a daily habit of meditation?
  • How can you zone out distractions?
  • Is there a way to meditate while driving to help anxiety?
  • What is a fun, mindful activity for the Christmas holidays?

Hello and welcome to episode 149 of The Mindful Kind podcast.

This is the first episode in my new mini-series about meditation, so I've decided to talk about what meditation is, some of the research on it and a few of the potential benefits of a meditation practice.

Here are the links to some of the studies I mentioned:

Article: Does meditation have benefits for mind and body?

Article: Scientific benefits of meditation

Article: Meditation leads to greater pain relief than morphine

Some of the benefits of meditation can include reduced stress, anxiety and depression, increased self-awareness, better attention, help with anger management, more compassion and improved sleep.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the next episode in the meditation mini-series about the different types of meditation.

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

Hello! I'm so excited to be podcasting again after a few weeks away while I travelled overseas. 

In this episode, I've shared some of my travel experiences and things I learned, including how I planned our trip, why we spent so much time doing non-touristy things and what I found out about my own anxiety. 

You'll also get to hear my exciting news;)

Here are my 4 top tips for readjusting back to normal life:

  • Take a short break after you get back from holiday and before you go back to work
  • Use to-do lists and planners
  • Incorporate fun things you did while travelling into your regular life
  • Engage in self-care

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