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.
