Getting into Happy Baby Pose:⠀ ⠀ Begin by laying flat on your back. Exhale and bend the knees into the belly. Inhale and grip the outside of each foot with the corresponding hand. If you are performing Dead Bug Pose, hold on to the inside of each foot instead. If you find it difficult to grip your feet, try looping a belt or yoga strap over each sole and holding on to the ends of it. Open your knees slightly wider than your torso and bring them up towards your armpits. If you are performing Dead Bug Pose, your⠀ ⠀ Stack each ankle directly over the knee so that the shins are perpendicular to the floor. With gentle movements, push your feet up into your hands and pull down with your hands to create resistance. Flex your feet. Lengthen your spine as you bring your thighs into your torso and towards the floor.⠀ ⠀ Hold this posture for 30 seconds to a minute. Exhale and release the feet back to the floor. Rest for a few breaths before moving on.
Amazing Transformation By @excessmatters⠀ -⠀ I've lost over 105 pounds and my body continues to get leaner and stronger every week, but my mind plays tricks on me and tells me otherwise. Some days, all I can see are the flaws and how far I still have to go. I know this is irrational and part of my disordered thinking around food and body. Unfortunately recovery is not linear, it's an ebb and flow through muddy waters. I took about a million photos yesterday, and in some I look more svelte and in others I look more lumpy. I eventually settled on this one because I'm smiling and I'm truly happy, feeling proud of how far I've come. My "after" pic might look like a "before" to some, but we are all a work in progress. #nevergiveup
What time do you wake up? You should sleep in blocks of 1.5 hours that way you go through an entire sleep cycle. For example sleep for 1.5 hours or 3 or 4.5 or 6 or 7.5, I don’t usually recommend longer.⠀ ➡️ @holisticali
