Being Sick and Mindfulness
In episode 80 of The Mindful Kind podcast, discover more about being mindful during times of illness.
First of all, a quick apology for the sound of my voice! I know it isn't great as I have a cold at the moment, but I really wanted to share this episode:)
Tips for being sick and practising mindfulness:
- Get plenty of sleep
- Eat and drink things which are good for your body during times of illness. Some of my go-tos include soup with veggies, plenty of water, garlic, orange juice, manuka honey (thanks to my friend, Miranda Partridge) and turmeric lattes (my favourite brand is Golden Grind).
- Do body scans to find where pain is located in your body so you can take care of it with a massage, hot water bottle, or gentle stretches.
- Try not being mindful! Use distractions like movies, tv and books to help painful times pass.
