Hello and welcome to episode 303 of The Mindful Kind.

In this episode, you'll learn about my personal "emergency" self-care plan for times when I'm struggling with anxiety.

Please keep in mind that this plan is based on my own research and experiences and I highly recommend that you seek out good-quality support from a mental health professional to create your own plan.

Below are some of the key elements of my self-care plan for anxiety.

1: Minimise stress triggers as much as possible (keep in mind, this is only a short-term solution I use when I'm dealing with high anxiety)

2: Talk about my feelings with someone I trust or write them down somewhere private

3: Be aware of my unhelpful coping mechanisms and try not to engage in them. I try to make choices that might improve my mental wellbeing, not potentially cause further harm or pain

4: Create things to look forward to, like a catch up with a friend or a book arriving in the mail

5: Be prepared to ride the waves of anxiety, knowing that feelings ebb and flow

If you'd like to learn more about my experiences with mental health and being an over thinker, check out my free online workshop, 3 Secrets You Need to Know to Level Up With Mindfulness. You'll find the link at www.rachaelkable.com/podcast/303

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

Hello and welcome to episode 302 of The Mindful Kind podcast. 

In this episode, you'll discover the simple things I've been doing in my own life to help manage stress during a busy season of my life. 

1: Meditation. I've particularly been enjoying sitting outside in the sunshine for a few minutes and practicing mindfulness.

2: Slow yoga classes at night-time (with most of the lights off for added coziness).

3: Listening to podcasts, including The Aubrey Marcus Podcast. You'll hear rich and authentic conversations between Aubrey Marcus and his brilliant variety of guests, including Layla Martin, Simon Sinek, and many more! Click here to check it out.
Thank you to The Aubrey Marcus Podcast for sponsoring this episode of The Mindful Kind!

4: Asking for hugs and using self-soothing touch to help manage stress.

5: Mindful walking!

So, those are five things that have been helping me find calmness during an emotional and stressful time in my life. I hope you enjoy trying them out for yourself!

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

Hello and welcome to episode 301 of The Mindful Kind podcast.

In this episode, I've shared some of the signs I tend to look for when I'm trying to decide if I'm able to trust someone. Please keep in mind that these signs are not fool-proof, nor are they always accurate! 

These signs can simply be helpful guidelines when choosing how much to trust someone.

Sign 1: Trustworthy people often help others feel at ease - you won't be worried about them hurting you, shocking you, or being overly unpredictable.

Sign 2: A trustworthy person will tend to respect your boundaries and won't make you feel like you're not good enough. They'll show compassion, acceptance, and empathy.

Sign 3: Another sign that someone is trustworthy is that they won't be afraid to be vulnerable with you. However, they'll also take the time to build a strong relationship with you before they show you their vulnerabilities. 

Sign 4: Someone who doesn't regularly break other people's trust is more likely to be trustworthy. While this might seem obvious, it can be important to keep this in mind!

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