Hello and welcome to episode 298 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, you'll discover an interesting concept that involves assuming the best in some situations. Please keep in mind that assuming the best won't be appropriate for every situation, so please use your best judgement!

There are three great things that can happen when you try to assume the best:

1: You might feel more compassionate towards other people

2: You'll feel more hopeful about the future

3: You'll have more confidence in yourself when you're trying new things

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

Hello and welcome to episode 297 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, you'll learn about toxic positivity and how you can protect yourself from it. Please keep in mind that toxic positivity can be a complicated issue and there might not always be a "black and white" solution.

Here are some strategies for protecting yourself from toxic positivity:

  • Don't blame yourself if someone says you're not "happy enough." You might like to remove yourself from the situation and take some time to process your feelings where you feel safe.
  • Use a self-soothing strategy, like soothing touch or a self-compassionate affirmation.
  • Honour your emotions and needs.

Don't forget to subscribe to The Mindful Kind podcast so you won't miss any future episodes!

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

Hello and welcome to episode 296 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, you'll learn about some practical strategies to help you be more optimistic during difficult times. 

To understand optimism a little more, be sure to check out episode 114 of The Mindful Kind, "Outlooks on Life: Optimism."

Please keep in mind that you don't have to feel happy in order to be optimistic!

Below are three strategies to help you be more optimistic during difficult times:

1: Identify the loudest negative thought and gently challenge it (then focus your attention on a more optimistic thought) 

2: Practice gratitude or observing your strengths during difficult times

3: Take empowered action. Choose one small thing you can do to help make the difficult situation a little better

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