Episodes

#61: The Mindful Kind // Beauty and Mindfulness  

In episode 61 of The Mindful Kind podcast, hear about why I decided to set my first New Year's resolution in years!

Situations to practice noticing the beauty in people:

- Social media. Take a moment to stop and notice something genuinely beautiful about each person you see.

- Day to day life. Send compliments in your thoughts to people you interact with or see every day. 

- Look at yourself in the mirror. Gently replace your self-criticisms with beautiful things about yourself. 

The beautiful book I mention is "Be Mindful and Simplify Your Life" by Kate James and I'll be posting a review on my blog soon at www.rachaelkable.com/blog

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind!

Mindful communication tips:

1 // Practice communicating! Write down your thoughts and feelings if you need to, so you can clearly communicate more authentically. 

2 // Mindfully reassure yourself if someone disagrees with you. 

3 // Create space for someone else to talk so they feel heard, supported and validated.

#54: The Mindful Kind // Dentists, Stress and Fear  

Welcome to episode 54 of The Mindful Kind podcast!

In this episode, you'll hear an honest and open story about my own fear and stress and how un-mindful I was in a very recent situation. 

I hope this episode will show you how difficult it can be to practice mindfulness sometimes and how easy it can be to slip into stress. 

A few things I learned:

Lean in to supports.

Do research or prepare for challenging situations to make yourself feel safer. 

Listen to your body.

Be open to the positives in challenging situations.

Learn from your stressful situation about how you could be more mindful next time. 

Most importantly, be forgiving and kind towards yourself and practice not feeling ashamed for the way you feel. This is a gentle reminder that we're human and things happen and we're all just doing the best we can.

I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind!

#52: The Mindful Kind // Facing Your Fears  

Hello and welcome to episode 52 of The Mindful Kind podcast!

In this episode, discover how to use mindfulness to face your fears. 

This is a gentle and kind approach to addressing fears- this is not an episode about feeling the fear and doing it anyway (at least, not at first!). 

You'll discover a few of my own fears about snakes and public speaking (and more!) and how I've used mindfulness to face up to those things. 

A few tips for facing your fears using mindfulness:

- Take small steps towards facing your fears and listen for when it becomes too much

- Urge surf to let go of irrational, fearful reactions

- Be aware of your self-talk and adjust it to suit you (know which thoughts help you and which ones don't!)

- Use your breath to reduce fear

- Have a plan for self-care and mindfulness after you've faced your fear. Be kind to yourself and try to decrease rumination. 

And finally, please reach out for more help if you need it in facing your fears.

Adventures don't always need to be expensive or grand! Find out a few different types of adventures, which you can do easily and without spending much money. 

Tips for going on mindful adventures:

- Make conscious decisions to go on mindful adventures

- Identify worried or hurtful thoughts about going on adventures and either take action or let those thoughts go

- Be curious: soak up as much as you can from your new experience

- Be conscious about allowing yourself to have different experiences (try not to make decisions on autopilot and go outside your comfort zone)

Your mindful mission: Go on adventure or plan one and schedule it into your diary!

I hope you have a wonderful adventure, Mindful Kind!

A quick tip from one of my listeners following the break-ups episode (number 44) is to create flower posies!

Collect some flowers and create little bunches to remind yourself of all the support and beauty in your life. 

Three mindful tips for overcoming comparison:

Discover and know your own values, and regularly check in with them. Smile and say an affirmation.  Mindfully celebrate yourself.
