Yoga for Stress

Yay! So I have had a bunch of these written down and now I am finally going around doing my guides and flows. I arranged it so it would somehow flow, it’s not perfect.

Also, yes, we all know yoga is pretty darn not stressful but these are some great poses to do when your stressed out and just need to find your breath and wind down.

Downward Dog - Ground your hands into the floor and engage your inner feet. Imagine a string at your tailbone, pulling it up and back. Take a few breaths here. Feel free to pedal your feet out and feel the stretch in your calves. This pose helps calm your brain.

Cobra - Spread your hands onto your mat close to your shoulders. Push up and elbows in. Press the top of your feet and your pelvic bone into the floor. Squeeze your shoulder blades together.

Child’s Pose - There are a few variations. I like to touch my big toes together, with knees open and stretch arms out. You can also keep your knees together and lay onto your thighs. Find what feels yummy to you.

Cat/Cow - Make sure your shoulders are directly above your wrists and your knees are right below your hips. Inhale on cow, lift your tailbone and your chest toward the ceiling. Exhale on cat, round your spine, head looking down. Do a few cycles of this. Do them slow and take deep breaths.

Sitting Forward Bend - Sit on the floor, if it is uncomfortable, sit on a pillow, lifting your tailbone up about an inch. Stretch forward, head down. Do not force this stretch. Reach to a comfortable place.

Plow - Roll onto your back, slowly bringing your legs up and over your head, with your toes touching the ground. Soften your throat. Stretch your arms onto the floor.

Happy Baby - Lie on your back, bend your knees to your belly. Reach to grab your toes. I like to wrap my arms around my legs and hold onto my feet. If it is difficult to reach your toes, grab a strap or a belt around your feet to help you reach. Rock side to side, close your eyes, breathe.

Reclining Bound Angle Pose - Bring the soles of your feet together, forming a diamond with your legs. Lay down carefully, arms out. Close your eyes and breathe. If it is uncomfortable, find a yummy position. Move your feet away from you until you are comfy.

I hope this helps you destress! They are very simple poses. You can easily do these when you wake up or if you need to wind down and want to sleep.  You can do a few cycles of this. I like to take each pose with three deep breaths before moving on. If you find a pose particularly yummy, feel free to hang out there! (:

I couldn’t be more proud of these 5 idiots

From the bottom of the stairs to the top of the world;

Five boys,Harry Styles,Liam Payne,Louis Tomlinson,Niall Horan and Zayn Malik ,each performed as solo artist in X-Factor.But fate had different plans for them. Were formed as a band ‘One Direction' on 23rd July,2010 by Simon Cowell. They won thousands of hearts in such a short duration and stood runner up in the contest. But this wasn’t the end of One Direction’s journey. Their first single ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ went a hit success followed by their first album ‘Up All Night’. This led to Up All Night tour in Europe,Australia as well as North America. Eventually,One Direction started winning millions of hearts from all over the world. Not only have they won awards from different award shows but also Global Success Award twice. Next came their second album Take Me Home followed by the second tour,Take Me Home Tour which added even more shows in different cities of the world including Tokyo,Japan. One Direction also has its own books including Where We Are and Dare To Dream. The band even launched their own fragrance, Our Moment and later This Moment. Their biggest hit was when they stepped into the film world. Their own 3D Movie ‘This Is Us’ was watched by millions all over the world,adding to their fame. But the most enjoyable event has to be the 7 hour live-stream on 23rd November,2013. The day was named ‘1DDAY’. Fans and celebrities all over the world participated in this joyous and endearing live-stream. The third album  Midnight Memories showed yet another hard-work of the boys where most of the songs were written by the boys themselves. Currently,One Direction is on the road for their first stadium tour ‘Where We Are Tour’. The band has performed numerous shows in Latin America and Europe. More shows are yet to be performed. But this is not all. During the beginning of Where We Are Tour, they announced their fourth world tour ‘On The Road Again’ for 2015. This covers the whole globe.Not to forget the fourth album which is due to be released by the end of 2014. Also One Direction’s another perfume named You & I is settled to be available soon. The young heartthrobs have yet to achieve more in the future.
Even after such a success and huge fame,the boys have stayed humble and down to earth. They care about their fans and do not take this fame for granted. Millions of girls have claimed how these young boys have changed their lives positively. Therefore, A MASSIVE THANK YOU ONE DIRECTION AND HAPPY 4TH ANNIVERSARY.

  1. The boy who takes your virginity is only going to love you long enough for you to stay in his bed.
  2. Your first job is never the best job. But you’ll meet some of your best friends there.
  3. Sometimes things don’t go the way you expect them to at all.
  4. People are usually never who they say they are.
  5. If you love someone, you need to tell them. Nobody is good at the guessing game.
  6. If your best friends don’t like the boy you’re involving yourself with, chances are he’s bad news.
  7. If a boy starts an invitation with, “Are you home alone”/”I’ll be home alone”, say no. You are a human being, not a toy to be played with.
  8. If some boy invites you to “the backseat of his truck”, he’s a piece of shit. Tell him to fuck himself.
  9. “Sorry” doesn’t always fix what you messed up.
  10. Stop wasting time wishing you could take back what you already did.
  11. You are at fault sometimes.
  12. There’s going to be a boy that you let get away. Yes, you loved him. It’s for the best, though.
  13. Toxic people hardly ever start off toxic.
  14. It’s always nice to make new friends, but never forget who your real friends are.
  15. Never lose the friends that would answer their phone at 3am if you called
  16. Never lose sight of who you are because of a boy.

Anonymous said: What is the best way to make your lips look plumper without it being very noticeable.? I have pretty thin lips and I tried using lip liner but it just makes me look like I'm wearing too much lipstick. Am I applying it wrong or is there another solution? Help!!

okaywork:

ok here are a few things you can do other than liner

  • use a lighlight shade on your cupid’s bow
  • put a little bit of bronzer under your bottom lip to create a shadow
  • use lip gloss
  • wear medium to light colors but try to avoid super nude shades because those can erase your lips completely
