Hello and welcome to episode 205 of The Mindful Kind podcast. In this episode, I've answered a listener's question about how to move forward from a break-up (without destroying the chance to develop a friendship) and how comparison can interfere with moving on.  The two powerful tips for moving forward gracefully include: Tip 1: Focus on the values that are important to you (and pause before you react!) Tip 2: Do things that bring joy and purpose into your life (and also take time to be self-compassionate with vulnerable emotions) You can get your copy of the Self-Compassion Meditation Album here: https://www.rachaelkable.com/selfcompassion-album And don't forget to check out episode 44 of The Mindful Kind for self-care tips to help you get through a break-up and episode 45 to help you deal with comparison.  Thank you so much for listening and I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.

Hello and welcome to episode 202 of The Mindful Kind podcast.  In this episode, you'll hear about my own experiences with learning how to appreciate the little things in life. Before practising mindfulness, I often felt caught up in my thoughts and distracted from the present moment.

Here are 5 simple ways you can appreciate some small, yet meaningful, moments in your everyday life.  1: Notice the warmth of the water when you take a shower 2: Play your favourite song and listen to it like you're hearing it for the last time and you want to remember everything about it 3: Tune in to your sense of smell when you're drinking a hot drink 4: Spend time consciously appreciating nature 5: Find your own favourite mindful moments in your everyday life Thank you so much for listening and I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.

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.
