Hello and welcome to episode 196 of The Mindful Kind podcast.  I recently received an insightful email from the lovely Lauren, who was curious to know my thoughts on self-care versus making excuses.  In this episode, you'll discover three helpful ideas for engaging in self-care in meaningful and effective ways - without self-sabotage or using self-care as an excuse. Decide what self-care really means to you and use this to navigate your self-care practices Become more aware of all-or-nothing cognitive distortions (which you can learn more about on episode 182 of The Mindful Kind podcast called Cognitive Distortions) Remember that sometimes, self-care can actually be difficult. It can involve choosing to do something good for yourself (or your future self) even when you may not necessarily feel like it.

Hello and welcome to episode 189 of The Mindful Kind podcast.  In this episode, I'm sharing my thoughts on a struggle I used to experience regularly, which I call the "Happy Later Fantasy".  When I was indulging the "Happy Later Fantasy" I was escaping my reality (because I felt like it wasn't good enough) to picture my "perfect future" and all the happiness I would feel one day.  The problems with doing this on a regular basis? I was practicing the opposite of gratitude by focusing on all the things I didn't like in my life I wasn't taking responsibility for finding happiness in my daily life - I was just waiting for it to magically appear once I achieved certain things. Here are 3 tips to stop indulging in the "Happy Later Fantasy": Be more mindful and appreciate the meaningful moments in your daily life Deliberately create happiness by engaging in hobbies and self-care, spending time with loved ones and exercising regularly  Let go of pressuring yourself to have a "perfect" future Thank you so much for listening and I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.
