The Truth About Self-Love

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.

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

[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.

Today we’ll go through some tips on how to reduce your screen time and be more present in the moment.
