Hello and welcome to episode 87 of The Mindful Kind podcast!
In this episode, I'm answering the most common question my listeners ask me, which is how to deal with challenging people.
So, here are my top 5 tips:
1 // Acknowledge how you feel and show yourself some self-compassion.
2 // Remember that your perspective/experience isn't the same as anyone's else's.
3 // Communicate! You might like to revisit episodes 24 and 60 for tips on mindful listening and communication.
4 // Build you own confidence and sense of self-worth. To read an article I wrote on this topic, head to: www.rachaelkable.com/blog/mindful-and-powerful-confidence-tips
5 // Have a safe way to debrief (and don't send texts or emails about other people!).
I hope you enjoy the episode and have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind:)
Hello and welcome to episode 86 of The Mindful Kind podcast (and the final episode of the goal-setting mini series).
In this episode, you'll discover some simple (but fun!) ways to celebrate your goals, efforts and achievements.
Tip 1 // Track your goals and set up a reward system
Choose fun ways to reward yourself for the goals you achieve by keeping track of your achievements via an app, journal, or other tracker. If you would like to download a free tracker I created, then click here to subscribe to my newsletter (this free tracker is part of a workbook which also includes an epic list of reward ideas and affirmations you can use when you achieve your goals!).
Tip 2 // Record all the steps towards your goals in a journal
Write about the achievements, the challenges, how you overcame those challenges, and anything else meaningful to you.
Tip 3 // Use affirmations and positive thoughts, such as "I'm doing really well and I'm proud of myself."
You'll also discover some interesting research by Lepper and Green about their intrinsic versus extrinsic motivations in children.
I hope you enjoy the episode and have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind!
