Hello and welcome to episode 191 of The Mindful Kind podcast and the second episode of the relaxation mini-series!

In this episode, I've shared some of my initial struggles with meditation and how meditation has gradually become one of my favourite activities for intentional and meaningful relaxation. 

Three types of relaxing meditations I talk about in this episode include:

  • Relaxing with each exhale
  • Progressive muscle relaxation
  • Visualisation

If you're looking for a beautiful relaxation resource where I guide you through relaxing meditations step-by-step, be sure to check out my new Relaxation Meditation Album here: https://www.rachaelkable.com/relaxation-album

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

Hello and welcome to episode 190 of The Mindful Kind podcast and the first episode of the relaxation mini-series!

I'm so excited to let you know about the brand new free relaxation challenge I've created which you can sign up for here: https://www.rachaelkable.com/podcast/190

You'll receive a beautiful PDF workbook, email support from me for the duration of the challenge and a deep breathing video class at the end of the challenge!

In this episode, I've shared three soothing and relaxing activities, including:

  • Lying on your bed with your legs up the wall and listening to meditation music
  • Taking a bath with soothing aromas
  • Doing something creative and fun

I've also talked about why mindfulness is so important during relaxation practices and you can also learn more about that in my book, The Mindful Kind: https://www.rachaelkable.com/themindfulkindbook

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

Hello and welcome to episode 189 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, I'm sharing my thoughts on a struggle I used to experience regularly, which I call the "Happy Later Fantasy". 

When I was indulging the "Happy Later Fantasy" I was escaping my reality (because I felt like it wasn't good enough) to picture my "perfect future" and all the happiness I would feel one day. 

The problems with doing this on a regular basis?

  1. I was practicing the opposite of gratitude by focusing on all the things I didn't like in my life
  2. I wasn't taking responsibility for finding happiness in my daily life - I was just waiting for it to magically appear once I achieved certain things.

Here are 3 tips to stop indulging in the "Happy Later Fantasy":

  • Be more mindful and appreciate the meaningful moments in your daily life
  • Deliberately create happiness by engaging in hobbies and self-care, spending time with loved ones and exercising regularly 
  • Let go of pressuring yourself to have a "perfect" future

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

  • Health
  • Relationships
  • Work
  • Fun

Welcome to episode 187 of The Mindful Kind podcast!

In this episode, I'll be sharing some of my own experiences with the benefits of minimalism, including:

  • valuing things (like relationships and meaningful work) other than material things (I also mention a book called Lost Connections by Johann Hari and some interesting research starting at Chapter 8)
  • more time
  • more financial freedom
  • less time spent cleaning and organising
  • less overwhelm

Don't forget to head over to my blog to also discover 8 minimalism hacks: https://www.rachaelkable.com/blog/minimalism-benefits-and-hacks

I'd also like to say a huge thank you to all my listeners - The Mindful Kind just reach 4 million downloads! I'm completely blown away:)
