Introduction to Jihi Elephant
Welcome to Jihi Elephant, a blog where I write about what I love. My official categories are Life, Organization, and Mental Health. The goal of Jihi Elephant is to give helpful tips and information to improve the quality of life of busy people. I also tell stories about my life and my experiences.
Jihi is a Buddhist term that refers to eliminating suffering with compassion. Likewise, this is the goal of Jihi Elephant.

What is the Purpose of Jihi Elephant
What is the purpose Jihi Elephant? I created the blog to share my own organization and mental health knowledge, tips, and tricks with my readers! Jihi Elephant is also an outlet to share people and products I love as well as sharing stories.
The Category: Life
The category Life encompasses A LOT. Under Life, you can find beauty product reviews and unboxing posts, stories from my travels, book reviews, recipes, life hacks, and more!
Life topics will be posts at least once a month on the first Friday. Occasionally I do bonus posts and these might be life topics. If I do a product review, these are most-likely bonus posts (but not always).
Each month I will also be doing an Ipsy Glam Bag Review for that month. The date this comes out will vary because it is based on my receiving the package.
The Category: Organization
The Organization category is exactly what it sounds like. I post about home and life organization. This will include how-to’s, DIY, home organization, bullet journaling, other forms of planning, home decorating and other helpful organization topics.
Organization topics will be posts at least once a month on the second Friday. Similar to Life, Organization topics may be posted as a bonus post or more than once a month.
Additionally, I will be providing monthly bullet journal updates at the beginning of each month. I am an avid planner and love bullet journaling and love to share it with you!
The Category: Mental Health
Mental Health, also encompasses a multitude of topics. Mental Health posts might include aromatherapy, psychology, self-love, challenges, and other mental health topics. Again, like the other categories, this topic is posted every third Friday and potentially more often.
More About the Writer, Elizabeth
First off, my name is Elizabeth. I graduated with my Bachelors in Arts, majoring in psychology, in November 2016, and am currently working towards a Master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling.
I have just been accepted into my preferred graduate program and am preparing to make the move! In the meantime, I am working as a direct care worker on the midnight and afternoon shift. As well as Managing a waterside ice cream trailer. Because of my hours, I have way more free time than I am used to.
I had been looking into and researching starting a blog for months but was too nervous to actually do one, wanting my focus to be on graduating. Finally, after being graduated for over a month and having been working for a few weeks I decided to go for it! The next day I bought my domain and jumped right in! Thus, the birth of Jihi Elephant!
