20/365 today was a good day with some really emotional and f*^%# up moments for me. I cried a number of times in my car once in the shower and a few times while practicing my headstands. Called my dad my grandma and my bestfriend ❤️ just to hear their voice. Gio took me to our new favorite coffee shop and that’s when it hit me! What are you grateful for during these times? Gio ❤️ My family ❤️ my friends ❤️ most importantly my health 💚🌱 Just yesterday one my best friends gave me one of the greatest gifts 🎁 she has given me so far. I can not wait to see you marry your bestfriend surrounded by the ones that love you guys. I’m thankful and over the moon I get to be a part of your guys special day!! We are going to get f*^%# UP!!! 🤣 so this headstand is dedicated to you @cosmic_paragon04 I love you woman 🤜🏽🤛🏽 ______________________________________________________________ If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

This is one of the FREE participation prizes for the contests coming up that will be announced on the 20th! "I LOVE this laundry product (so does everyone I know who uses it). It gets rave reviews from those who use it ... everyone loves the scent and the cleaning power.
It leaves laundry with a truly "fresh" scent. It smells like it has dried out on the line. For those who prefer, they do offer it in unscented as well. I have two small children and this removes most stains. I have used other green detergents but none worked as well as this. I may still be using Tide if it wasn't for this product (can you believe??). The March '08 issue of Domino Magazine covered green products and said that when it comes to laundry products, “Shaklee did the best job (by far) on our stain test.” I’d have to agree with that. I haven’t found anything better and I’ve stopped looking (no need)." - LiveBetter
18/365 Calming the mind is yoga 🧘🏽♀️ not just standing on your head 🤸🏽♀️ ______________________________________________________________
It’s great being able to do headstands. Every time I do a new one for me I scream with excitement. But what you don’t see in the pictures is me constantly working on clearing my mind. I sit or stretch and meditate for 20 minutes sometimes before going upside down. I’ve realized staying upside goes a lot smoother when I am actively trying to clear my mind. Focus on your breathing. Feel every part of your body when you’re getting ready to get into a headstand. Your body will tell you what to do you just have to be willing to listen 👂🏽 ______________________________________________________________
Headstand benefit: Increases Focus 🧠
When you turn upside down, you are increasing the blood flow to your brain. This can help to improve mental function, and increase you sense of focus.Along with helping to reduce fear and worry, this posture will improve your ability to keep your mind sharp and clear.
This makes my heart smile. I despise animal testing. I'm sure I unknowingly use some products tested inhumanely, but I try to go cruelty free and be conscientious. We don't need to make these animals suffer in the name of Beauty, pharmaceuticals, etc. There are other methods of testing. Things are finally changing. My heart breaks for every blind rabbit or diseased monkey still in a lab and for those that have been euthanized already after they've "served their purpose". 💔 #bananimaltesting#crueltyfree#crueltyfreemakeup#betheirvoice 🐒🐵🐰🐇🐀🐁🐭🐿🐾🐾🐾
17/365 time lapse of my quick stretch/headstand session today 🤸🏽♀️🙏🏽 always always stretch properly before going upside 🙃
Headstand benefit:Change Your Attitude
As mentioned before, inversions will create calm, reduce anxiety and increase productive energy — all of which will change your mood, but also change your perspective and give you a moment to collect some clarity on any given situation.
It is important to be ale to see all sides of an idea, opinion or situation even if you disagree with most of the view points. Being able to see those perspectives can create a deeper understanding of everyone involved and form a better plan of action.
16/365 Soooo I meant to take a quick nap yesterday afternoon and I slept through my alarm till this morning 🤣 I completely forgot to post my headstand picture and my other challenge pictures 🤦🏽♀️ so here’s yesterday headstand and I’ll be doing today’s headstand very soon 🤸🏽♀️ @rawtoeresa
______________________________________________________________headstand benefit:Strengthens Shoulders And Arms 💪🏽 While you are holding yourself up in headstand, you should be pushing down into the ground with your forearms, utilizing the strength of your arms, shoulders and back to keep the pressure off of your head and neck. This is an awesome posture for improving upper body strength and muscular endurance.
