Tidy Room

-tidying room isn’t just making your resting place organize, it honestly can be a form of ritual. When you tidy your room- you arrange your bed, you arrange your things, you see that it’s clean, Your thought becomes clearer. You get this lighter feeling, and it really sinks to you that you have a well-organized life. It’s like you removed all the mess in your thought, as you did it with your room.

Get Sun

– Getting sun and connecting with Nature is the best way to release all the stress and tension that you carry. This process allows you to breathe, and see the light.

Journal

– Journaling helps you let go all the negativity in you. It helps you to stop bottling emotions, rants, circling thoughts, or any weight. When you write in a form like you’re talking to someone, you acknowledge yourself and you prevent yourself from keeping it alone.

Always Rehydrate Yourself

-Rehydrating yourself is a must. It gives you the energy + enables your brain to work.
The water needed by a person depends on his/her weight and level of activity. If you’re struggling to rehydrate yourself with the right amount of water, I recommend the application ‘Plant Nanny’, it’s a fun and exciting way to keep your drinking schedule on track.

Have break from social media/or maybe even from Television

– I’m gonna be candid, but Social media today is just full of both negative and sugarcoated things. Same way with Television, it brings awareness but all we hear are accidents, negative deeds, et cetera.
– taking break from both things, will bring you escape away from boosters of your anxiety or other mental struggle.

Turn your time into a creative process

– Paint, Write poems /prose, sew, photograph, whatever, just create.
– Doing something fun where you find enjoyment + comfort + peace, will surely bring you so much positivity. Recharge through your comfort activity.

Meditate

-Meditating allows your head to focus, it recharges your thoughts. It allows your mind to escape through silence.
-i recommend the application called ‘Tide’ , it’s a great application for Meditation. It contains soundtracks which you can use to calm and focus.

Do some self care

– Self-Care is everything which arouses pleasure. Reading, watching your favorite film, skin care, warm bath, make up, coffee, eating, taking pictures of yourself.
– it is anything which can be considered a reward.

Why my Blog was so Quiet.


The last time that I posted a Blog was on May 27th. And I am going to tell you why I had to put myself on a hiatus, and show up just now.

The past weeks, social media has been so loud because of the movement you probably know about – The Black Lives Matter movement.
I decided to support that Movement first because c’mon! We need equality. Racism has to stop. And our Black Brothers and Sisters should also be able to live life the way they deserve.

I also became mentally drained, and I felt burned out because I used to stay late at night doing what I can possibly do to help.

Disclaimer : I’m not blaming the movement, It was and it is my initiative to help.

I know I knew what I should prioritize first, and that is to help those who are in need.
So I decided to temporarily stop my blogging game first. And be active on Twitter and Instagram, sign petitions, Send emails, share what I can possibly share. etcetera.

I, then, realize that if it was overwhelming and a little traumatic for me, then what about to those people experiencing racial injustice first hand?

I thought of an Instagram project I wish I can accomplish very soon.
And it’s the #theprojectloveletter.
Anyone can participate, and it’s aim is to make social media a good place for Our Black brothers and Sisters to heal.
If you wanna join, You can do the following :

1. Make a graphic (your letter of love to black people typed on a plain pink image)
2. Post on your feed and put under #theprojectloveletter
3. You can also share to your followers so more people can join.

The fight isn’t still over. There are lots of things which must still be fixed.
If you wanna do something or do more to support the movement, you can check the link. Here :

BLM Resources

– That link contains resources like petitions to sign, emails to send, websites of where you can donate to, and more.

You are needed in this battle!

I also want to let y’all know that I finally launched my newsletter called “Bookish & Coffeeholic”. This thing is something I’m really excited about.
I’ll start sending messages once I get 20 Subscribers. So if you can sign to my newsletter, I’d be really grateful!

That might be because you need correct some things with the way you write them.

Any bloggers may post about any topic of their choice, and has different ways to craft them. The pictures, word choices, structuring, making titles, et cetera.
Some writing strategies can be effective, and some might not be.
That is why, in this post, I’m gonna be sharing easy tips To boost the effectiveness of your Blog posts.

* Pin it 📌 *

Craft Out a Catchy Title

– Catchy titles are essential so readers get fascinated what the post of yours may contain the moment they see the preview of it. It can be a question, or a sentence.
Just by title Alone, your readers will know to themselves if your post is helpful, useful, informative, or not. They will also determine if they really have to read that or flee.

Use Topic-related Pictures

– Using Pictures isn’t new anymore. We use featured images to double up the beauty of our blog posts, and make it more pleasing and more professional.
When using a picture, make sure that it’s topic-related.

If your post is talking about travel, then the photo must showcase travelling too. If you talk about beauty, you must also showcase a beauty-related photo.
Don’t make your featured image ruin the readers impression.

Generate a Reader-Calling Introduction

– Introduction is important in everything. In essays, and other type of technical or academic writing.
Like title, you can also start with a question related to what you’re going to talk about along the post.
Your Intro must give a preview what the readers might find out after reading through.

Don’t be Too Verbose in the Body of Your Blog Post

– The most ineffective Way in writing today is making everything too long, wordy, and full of turns. Avoid that as much as possible, state your main ideas or purpose to be able not to bore the readers, and jump out of your post. However, if you have a lot to share, the post can really get lengthy. Being lengthy on that Case is okay, for as long as you target the key points.

Be Direct to the Point, Use Modern Blog Post Structuring

– most Readers like it when they get what they want out of the post quickly.
They have intention when they read, whether that is the information, or the answer they were expecting you to give. You might as well wanna make sure that they get their intention fast and clearly.
By doing that, they’ll be happy how your blog post turned out, thus coming back for more.
In order to be straightforward, you can use the modern structuring used by bloggers: Bullets, Highlights, or an outline, or the keyword and definition method.

Choose the Right Vocabulary

– Keep in mind that your readers aren’t all the same, and they can also be different from you. You can have adult or teen readers in one post, so be picky with the words that you use.
Make sure that your Vocabulary is easy to understand, Not too deep, not too shallow. Choose words that are Not too ancient, and not too modern. Stick to people’s comfort level.

Use a Moderated Tone in Writing

– As a writer, You wanna sound Professional as possible with the way you structure your sentences, and the way you put your ideas on your post.
Using a moderated tone in writing is your best friend. Be sure that you doesn’t put too much of your belief, don’t be too bias, don’t be insensitive with your readers.
Keep in mind that you doesn’t have to sound as professional as you want. Keep your tone welcoming, kind, but with a twist of being a little technical.

Design your Post

– Designing your post isn’t about being childish. It’s just a strategy of being artistic, and showing your effort to the readers.
To Design, use graphics which are clear and is not distracting. Don’t make it too big to the extent that it’s already outshining your main post.

Make Conclusion

– In making conclusion, you can just make a quick summary of what you stated on the body of your post. It doesn’t have to be too long.
However, some bloggers today doesn’t make conclusions anymore. It’s optional.

End your Post with Question/s, or with a Remarkable Quote.

– Adding questions at the end of your blog is the most effective way to let your readers engage, or comment. It gives your post the ability to be communicative and make your audience connect with you.
– On the other side, adding a remarkable quote simply make your post able to become remarkable as well. It also encourage a certain course of action, especially if you talk about awareness on something.

Let your Readers Feel You’re their Friend

– Readers feel warmth, and more welcome all the time when you make them feel like you’re a friend through your writing. How? Treat your Blog post as if it’s a letter to a friend. After adding a question or a quote, add an ending remark such as ‘hugs’ xoxo’ love’, then add your name. Easy, Right?

Specific Tips to Boost Self-Confidence // Self-Love & Personal Development


You wake up early in the morning, and you look at yourself in the mirror. You think that you’re just a potato out of all these beautiful people around you.

You post photos on social media where you always hide yourself, as if your followers will start unfollowing you once they see you.

You copy tutorials on Youtube how to glow up, but then you think, it doesn’t work for you.

Confidence is indeed a difficult thing to have, and it’s not easy to be developed in this ever-growing abundance of media. I guess, everyone struggle with it, if not always, sometimes.

Are you also struggling to stay confident everyday?
If yes, this blog post is for you!

Here are the specific tips to help you be comfortable about yourself :

° Journal your insecurities, then as you fight that insecurity every day, eliminate a letter until it’s already all erased. Means, it’s not your insecurity anymore, but rather a flaw you learned to love and accept.

° Stop comparing yourself to others, and start owning your life.

° Be grateful for what you have

° Think about one of your characters people are most likely to notice and praise, then keep that character.

° Do some workouts, but be body-positive

° Eat healthy foods, and drink healthy drinks

° Expose yourself to people, socialize, and always be kind as possible

° Have advocacies

° Recognise your accomplishments

° always try to be positive, and smile, because a person who’s always smiling is hard to break

° Find your talents, then do not keep them for yourself

° Get out of your comfort self : try new outfits, new hairstyle

° Post pictures of yourself, then if someone comment something negative, unfollow or block that user, you do not need to be connected with negative people

° polish nails, if you want

There’s definitely nothing wrong about improving one self, for as long as you do not change it. Remember, that growth only comes when you’re brave enough to walk out of the things or practices you’re comfortable at.
In this world where people are most-likely to sugarcoat themselves, learn how to hug your true self instead, then be confident being it.
