april-link-fest

It’s time for April’s Link Fest, where I round up all my favourite things on the Internet from the past month.

This edition includes awesome articles on what to do when you’re overwhelmed / exhausted / having a bad day / going through a hard time, how to get noticed, the inside story on pushing too hard, how to stop comparing yourself to strangers on the Internet (something I think we’re all guilty of!), everything you ever wanted to know about meditation, and ideas for random acts of kindness. As well as brilliant articles about whitespace, self-awareness, vision boards, feminism, and so much more.

Enjoy!

Stuff from me this month:

This month I had Introvert Week here on the blog, you can check out the recap here or the individual posts here:

So… I’m an introvert. A story about when I first discovered I was an introvert, the misconceptions about introverts that are just not true and a dot-point history of what being introverted has been like for me.

I shared what I’ve learnt from Shhh by Katherine Mackenzie-Smith (plus there’s a giveaway happening!).

I had the pleasure of interviewing with Katherine Mackenzie-Smith, someone who has found their own unique way to shine as an introvert and she shared lots of wisdom. Read it here.

I shared 5 things that have helped me to embrace being an introvert and not let it hold me back. And also had 17 introverts share their insights on how they embrace their introverted nature.

 

Also:

Issue 9 promo 2I was thrilled to have an article featured in one of my favourite online magazines: Raspberry Magazine. I wrote about how you can use gratitude to help you navigate the online world (it’s also a really awesome edition with great articles and interviews — plus it’s free!). Read it here.

I’ve been hanging out over at CASA DE KARMA this month talking about one of my all-time favourite topics: Gratitude. I’ve shared o5 simple ways you can practice gratitude in your daily life as well as 7 of my favourite quotes on gratitude and how you can put them into action in your own life.

 

Happy Reading!

    Aw! Thanks for including sharing my article about scrolling! <3 xxx

    • http://www.oneinfinitelife.com/ Chloe | One Infinite Life

      My pleasure Tahlee! At the moment I’ve been dedicated to using social media intentionally and consciously, as well as spending less time scrolling in general, so it was a very timely and useful article for me. And of course — listening to your meditones is one of my favourite things to do instead of mindless scrolling ??

        Nawww! Tee hee – thank you sweetheart. And “intentional and conscious social media use” is the best. Love it babe.

    • http://www.oneinfinitelife.com/ Chloe | One Infinite Life

    Love this article! I am very introverted. After being with my boyfriend for almost 7 years, he is finally understanding what dating an introverted person is like and what it really means to recharge by yourself. It’s funny because he used to think I didn’t like him because I was introverted and did so many things independent of him.

    • http://www.oneinfinitelife.com/ Chloe | One Infinite Life

      So glad you liked it Natasha. Thank you for sharing your thoughts here as well, it’s really interesting how often typical introverted behaviour can be misinterpreted as something bad like not liking someone.
