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.

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.

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.Read more
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!
We’re all guilty of judging people. Hopefully, though, as people expand their tolerance and respect towards people who are different then themselves, we will judge less and love more.

There is one thing the world so desperately needs right now and thats more kind people. 2020 has been a rough year. We’ve had Coronavirus, racial injustice around the world and devastating explosions and fires.

I have come up with a list 30 random acts of kindness that we can do to show each other a little bit of love, because we know that we need it right now.Read more

If you’re anything like me then I run away from fear and the things that make me scared, and I think thats quite common. Very rarely do I face my fears and push through my comfort zone.

So today I thought we could have a discussion and talk about why its important that we do these things and what we can benefit from it.Read more
