Hello and welcome to episode 111 of The Mindful Kind podcast!
To celebrate the start of the New Year, I created an episode of The Mindful Kind Video Blog about my best advice for setting fun and meaningful goals, which you can watch on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/Py7yrImHDmo
This podcast episode is about growing older and also showing compassion towards elderly people. You'll discover some interesting cultural attitudes about ageing from around the world and simple tips for embracing older age, including reminding yourself that happiness has actually been scientifically linked with older age!
There are also some ideas for treating elderly people with more kindness and care, including:
- Treating elderly people the way you would want to be treated
- Being present and listening mindfully (be sure to check out The Mindful Kind episodes 101 to 107 for communication tips!)
- Being self-compassionate
- Understanding the difference between empathy and sympathy
- Finding a common interest
I hope you enjoy the episode and have a wonderful start to 2018!:)
