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.
