Hello and welcome to episode 182 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, I'm really excited to chat about cognitive distortions, including what they actually are, where the concept came from and some examples of different types of cognitive distortions. 

Here are the 5 types of cognitive distortions shared in this episode:

  • All-or-nothing thinking
  • Overgeneralisation
  • Mental filter
  • Disqualifying the positive
  • Jumping to conclusions (mind reading and fortune telling)

Here are some great references and links for further reading:

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

Hello and welcome to episode 181 of The Mindful Kind podcast! 

Thank you for tuning in to this episode - which is actually coming out on the day of my birthday:) 

I thought I would explore the topic of life purpose and how I'm moving forward after achieving my big goal of writing a book (and then feeling a bit lost afterwards). 

Here are my 4 top tips for finding more life purpose:

  • Write down all the things that help you feel purposeful (and perhaps, acknowledge why they help you feel purposeful)
  • Visualise your ideal life - notice the parts of your life that are already ideal and think about how you can work towards creating a more ideal life for yourself
  • Let go of things that don't serve you or hold you back from achieving your potential
  • Remind yourself that it's okay when the reality of achieving a goal is different from what you expected.

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.

Hello and welcome to episode 180 of The Mindful Kind podcast!

In this episode, I've talked all about a recent experience of mine where a stressful morning turned into a wonderful day. 

Because I often struggle to turn a tough day around, I thought I would do a little research and share some tips for this so we can work on it together!

Tip 1 // Exercise - get your body moving and enjoy some endorphins (I'll be aiming to get out of bed earlier so I can be more consistent with this!). 

Tip 2 // Notice negative thoughts and gently challenge them (in a self-compassionate way). 

Tip 3 // Practise mindfulness, meditation and self-care. Make the time to look after your wellbeing - even if it's just a few minutes! 

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

Hello and welcome to episode 179 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

Thank you to Katie for inspiring this episode with her question about how to relax during breaks from college. 

My top 3 tips for making the most of relaxation include:

  • Prepare yourself to relax by taking some time beforehand to disconnect from work/study/busy-ness and get ready to immerse yourself in relaxation
  • Practice mindfulness during your relaxation time so you can really experience it
  • Practice relaxing every day so it's not a shock to the system when you suddenly have a break or an opportunity to relax.
