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.

Hello and welcome to episode 181 of The Mindful Kind podcast!  Thank you for tuning in to this episode - which is actually coming out on the day of my birthday:)  I thought I would explore the topic of life purpose and how I'm moving forward after achieving my big goal of writing a book (and then feeling a bit lost afterwards).  Here are my 4 top tips for finding more life purpose: Write down all the things that help you feel purposeful (and perhaps, acknowledge why they help you feel purposeful) Visualise your ideal life - notice the parts of your life that are already ideal and think about how you can work towards creating a more ideal life for yourself Let go of things that don't serve you or hold you back from achieving your potential Remind yourself that it's okay when the reality of achieving a goal is different from what you expected.

mimi k There's nothing wrong with using technology. It's when a person becomes addicted to it that it becomes a problem. As long as we're the ones controlling and using our phones and not the other way around then I think it's fine.
