Hello and welcome to episode 220 of The Mindful Kind podcast.

It’s been a difficult time for many people around the world as coronavirus spreads and self-isolation is becoming more common.

Since I’ve been working from home for the last 2 years, I have a few simple strategies for people who might be struggling to adapt to self-isolation situations. I hope these ideas are helpful and if you know of anyone else who may benefit from this episode, please feel free to pass it on.

1: Create meaningful routines. Set start times, incorporate self-care, and look after your wellbeing. The sooner you can set up these routines, the sooner you can enjoy having some structure back in your life.

2: Be prepared for loneliness and do your best to stay connected with your friends and family. For more tips on coping with loneliness, be sure to check out episode 139 of The Mindful Kind podcast.

3: Engage in good self-care. Head over to www.rachaelkable.com/podcast/220 to find more resources to help you do this!

Take care and I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.

Hello and welcome to episode 218 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

First of all, to grab your free copy of the Mindfulness Activities Checklist, head over to www.rachaelkable.com/podcast/218

I hope you enjoy using the checklist to create a consistent mindfulness practice!

There are some wonderful mindfulness activities to use on the weekend when you might have a bit more time. Not only are these practices great for living more mindfully, but they can help improve your overall wellbeing, too. 

These mindfulness activities include:

  • Having a mindful conversation with someone you care about (be sure to check out episode 24 of The Mindful Kind for mindful listening tips!)
  • Engage in something creative and minimise distractions
  • Spend time in nature

Here are two mindful self-care activities you can use during tough days:

  • Write down your thoughts and feelings in a journal
  • Listen to your favourite music, meditation music, or an uplifting podcast. My favourite meditation music is the True North album by Sonesence (affiliate link) and my favourite podcast at the moment is The School of Greatness

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

Hello and welcome to episode 216 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, I've shared my thoughts on a mindset I heard while listening to The School of Greatness podcast (episode 839). 

The mindset is: "There is no competition and I want everyone in my life to succeed."

You'll learn why I think this concept is so great (including how it can strip away comparison and how it can push you out of your comfort zone in a good way). 

You'll also hear two ways I'll be embracing this mindset, including:

1: Sending thoughts of success out to other people in the world

2: Actively showing my loved ones that I support them.

Hello and welcome to episode 215 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, I've answered a lovely listener's question about how to let go of regrets - specifically how to let go of the regret about not being mindful earlier in life. 

Here are my three steps for overcoming regrets:

1: Acknowledge your regrets and the accompanying feelings without judgement. Try to notice any unhelpful thoughts and modify them so they become more neutral or positive.

2: Appreciate what you've learned from the experiences that you regret.

3: Take action to stop making the same mistakes over and over again. Find new ways to learn, grow and move forward from the things you regret.

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

Hello and welcome to episode 213 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, I've answered a great question from one of my listeners about how to become a more patient person. 

Here are my top 6 tips for cultivating patience:

Tip 1: Practice mindfulness! This practice can help you develop patience over time by letting go of rushing and appreciating the present moment. 

Tip 2: Be self-compassionate - sometimes situations that trigger impatience can be really challenging. Give yourself space to feel impatience without judgement. If you would like some guidance in cultivating self-compassion, be sure to check out my Self-Compassion Meditation Album at: www.rachaelkable.com/shop

Tip 3: Let go of "should" statements.

Tip 4: Take deep breaths to alleviate the intensity of impatience.

Tip 5: Ask yourself if being impatient actually helps! You can also ask yourself if there's something more constructive you could be doing to help the situation, rather than just feeling impatient.

Tip 6: Change your expectations so you're less likely to feel impatient in the first place.

I hope you've enjoyed this episode! Thank you so much and I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.

Hello and welcome to episode 212 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, I've answered a lovely listener's question about how to be less of a people-pleaser and start prioritising self-care.

Here are three reasons why it's important to prioritise self-care:

  • It can be important for maintaining good mental health 
  • It can teach people around you to engage in self-care, too
  • It can boost your self-worth and self-esteem

And here are three tips for putting yourself first:

  • Clearly know what you want and need so you can communicate it 
  • Offer to help when you're actually able
  • Be prepared for some resistance when you stop people-pleasing (at least at first!)

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

Hello and welcome to episode 210 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

It's been a challenging time in my part of the world (and much of Australia). The bushfires have caused so much devastation during this fire season and my little family and I evacuated and have been staying in Melbourne. It's been an awful time for so many people but I've also seen incredible examples of kindness and support.

If you're willing and able to donate, please consider the following:

CFA Victoria

Australian Red Cross

Help Save Koalas

In this episode, you'll learn about three types of empathy, including:

  • Cognitive empathy
  • Emotional empathy
  • Compassionate empathy

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

Hello and welcome to episode 209 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, you'll discover my top tips to help you stick to your New Year's resolutions!

Tip 1: Set small goals and gradually build them up (try halving your "ideal" goal and starting with that)

Tip 2: Write down your goals to help yourself stay accountable

Tip 3: Make your goals fun or interesting

Tip 4: Don't implement all your goals at once - choose two or three to start in January, a few more to start in February, and so on.
