EP 9: The Power of Mindset and Meditation

Trigger Warning: This conversation addresses the topic of parental suicide

Imagine a world where parents and children alike understood the power of self-compassion and a positive mindset. In this thoughtful episode, Meg Durham speaks to Mindset and Business Coach Katrina Myers, whose own journey of loss helped her go from struggle to strength through the power of meditation, positive mindset and self-compassion.

So what’s this episode really about?

  • Exploring the power of meditation and how introducing mindful moments into your day can make a huge difference.
  • How to become more aware of your thoughts and emotions through a more conscious mindset.
  • Developing the skills navigate the ups and downs of life.

Why you should listen

This episode is for anyone who has dealt with loss or has experienced being overwhelmed by the stressors of life. In this conversation, Katrina Myers explores the power of mindset and meditation for achieving better self-awareness while learning that we don’t always have to ‘do it all’. You will hear touching stories and valuable insights to inspire your growth and empower you to take control of your feelings, thoughts, and actions to improve your life.

Practical Applications

  • Recognise your thoughts – and separate your ‘thoughts’ from ‘yourself’ – you are not your thoughts.
  • Have a wellbeing strategy to set yourself up for success – start small and celebrate your progess.
  • Normalise that we don’t know how to do it all, but you can learn from somone that does.

You can quote us on that…

“When you have seen the darkest side of depression, and you’ve lost a parent to suicide, then to realise that it doesn’t have to be like that is, on the one hand confronting, but on the other hand, it’s extremely empowering.”

Katrina Myers

“Be kind to yourself. Give yourself a break.”

Katrina Myers

 “It’s not until you take radical responsibility for everything in your life that things really start to change.”
