Being more mindful and in tune with our thoughts can really help us to recognise and acknowledge the thoughts which might be hurting us or holding us back. We can then choose what we want to do about those thoughts- whether we let them go, do something differently or embrace more positive ideas.

STRESS AND MINDFULNESS
Welcome to the second episode of The Mindful Kind podcast! In this episode, I've dug deep to share my journey of stress and mindfulness with you.
When I was younger, stress played a huge role in my life and I found it really difficult to deal with. My relationships suffered, I felt alone and judged and even resulted in nasty tension headaches and high blood pressure.
When I learned mindfulness and started to practise it, I realised how far out of the moment I was, all the time. I was shocked to realise that I had never actually paid attention to my normal breath and how it felt!
Mindfulness has been a really amazing tool for managing stress and I hope my story can show you just one of the reasons why mindfulness has been such an important part of my life.
Towards the end of the episode, I share a beautifully simple mindfulness practice by tuning into our sense of smell.
