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!
