The Truth About Self-Love

Self-love is such an up and coming topic seen on blogs in 2020. Self-love and self empowerment is raging now more than ever. I wonder why that is?

I am here for it. In todays post we will go through a quick lesson on what self-love is, what it looks like and some truths about it too, which will hopefully teach us all a little more about the topic.

4 Ways To Deal With Unkind People Gracefully

You’re probably reading this title, like Olivia why would I want to show grace to people who are unkind? Well, research shows that there are several reasons why someone is a mean or unkind person. A lot of it has to do with how people have treated them in the past, a lack of self confidence, treating you how they feel about themselves – this is called projection and various other psychological reasons. I think that unkind people need the most love. It can be hard to do this, because how can you force yourself to show someone love who was mean to you? Well todays post talks about how we can take steps to be more graceful to others.

How to Find Pockets of Peace In Your Day

How to Find Pockets of Peace In Your Day

Recently I have become addicted to Tik Tok, I’m not proud of it but they say the first step of beating an addiction is admitting you have one. So here I am. Haha I’m totally kidding but I really do love watching Tik Tok videos. A few months ago I stumbled across a page where a woman called Nabela, who shares these amazingly put together videos showing pockets of peace in her day. Even if she doesn’t have a great day, she finds even the small positives and I thought it was such a great idea and such a great way to remember to be grateful and see the goodness in each day.

So today I thought I would share how you can find your pockets of peace in each day. Then I thought we could start a conversation and share with each other our pockets of peace. I’ll start by sharing mine and then you tell us yours in the comments!

4 Tips That Will Teach You To Stop Hating Mondays

4 Tips That Will Teach You To Stop Hating Mondays

It’s a known fact that most people in the world hate Mondays. Monday signifies the end of the weekend, the start of a new working week, and 5 more days till the weekend. This alone can be a really daunting fact to some people and can be a really scary feeling. Have you ever heard of the saying Monday blues? Typically when you say someone has the “blues” it’s referring to them feeling sad, or upset or just not themselves. Monday blues is the same thing, except its referred to as a feeling you get of being “blue” because its Monday.

How I Survived a Seven Day Digital Detox And What I Learnt From It

How I Survived a Seven Day Digital Detox And What I Learnt From It

[Guest Post]

Answer this before you read on – When did you first check your phone today?

Hi! My name is Pranjali Jain, from Dainty Palms. I write about mental health and lifestyle- trying to inspire others and myself to be the best possible version of ourselves. Today I am going to share my experience and the importance of digital detox with y’all. Thank you, Olivia, for the opportunity to bring this forward!

A week ago, I did a seven-day long digital detox, wherein I shut my social media handles and my blog for a break. The pressure of posting anything, replying, and being active was too much to handle. And I think I am not the only one to face this. So, if your answer to the question was close to “within an hour of waking up”, you probably need a digital detox.

A resolution I had for this year was to be more present in the moment and spend less time on electronic devices. Of course that didn’t happen because of COVID and also restarting my blog again, but I like to make a conscious effort to leave the technology behind every now and again. When I say screen time, I don’t just mean phones. I mean tablets, mobile phones, laptops, tv’s and any other device that has a screen! Today we’ll go through some tips on how to reduce your screen time and be more present in the moment.

Thank You For One Thousand

Thank You For One Thousand

I didn’t even know how to start this post. Because I was not quite prepared for me to hit this milestone so quickly. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for choosing to follow me. I restarted this blog at the beginning of July with 160 followers and no idea what I was doing (still don’t) and here I am on the 28th July hitting 1,000 followers. I never once thought this would happen and so soon.

I am still learning and making mistakes and still will. Theres always so much to learn with anything, especially blogging. Thank you for sticking with me. I hope that this can continue, and I hope this community of people can build up into an army of positive, self confident, kind humans. 💕

Special thanks to those that are constantly supporting, liking and commenting words of encouragement. You know who you are. And special thanks to those who have featured on my blog by doing guest posts. They really are so enjoyable and I love getting to know each of you through the process.

Thanks so much!
