    Late night snackin&#8217; on some delicious black cherries.🍒 Black cherries are an amazing remedy if you have trouble sleeping. They naturally boost melatonin levels. They&#8217;re also an amazing source of antioxidants, as they typically contain 17 antioxidants including anthocyanins-flavonoids.  Which happen to have some of the strongest effects of any plant compound &amp; melatonin.

    1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

      2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

      3. erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it.

      4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

      5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

      6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

      7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

      8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

      9. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

      10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

      11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

      12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

      14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

      15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

      16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.

    I&#8217;m not positive what the name of this pose is {4 different names came up when I searched it}, but I&#8217;m going to call it &#8216;Inverted Bow&#8217;. This is another favorite back bending pose of mine. ✨ Deep back stretches &amp; flexibility are becoming a quick favorite &amp; I&#8217;ve noticed so much progress in the last few weeks. Just like hollow back handstands, I find this is an easy resting pose to relax &amp; breathe in. 🌼 Also didn&#8217;t edit out my face on purpose, the edit just came out cool &amp; I stuck with it!

    I&#8217;ve always been a fan of healthier guilt-free alternatives, but had a really hard time finding healthy chips that I liked. Often I&#8217;d find they were too bland with an off texture. I bought these @EarthBalance chips expecting the same thing, but since I&#8217;ve never had them before it couldn&#8217;t hurt to try. I was seriously so surprised to say the least. They turned out to be everything I&#8217;ve been dreaming about in a chip. They taste soooo much better than even the unhealthy regular brand chips out there! The best part? They&#8217;re vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, 0g trans fat, kosher, &amp; plant based diet friendly! Can you get much better than that?! 😱 I highly recommend these if you&#8217;re looking for a healthier alternative. I definitely had to share the joy! 🌱

    Hollow back handstands &amp; variations are some of my favorite to practice. It really opens up my back &amp; gives my shoulders a good stretch. I&#8217;ve found it to be an easy resting pose that allows me to just relax &amp; breathe. This is a good pose to practice if you&#8217;re trying to achieve more flexibility in your spine, while strengthening your arms. After a few practices you&#8217;ll be able to see flexibility progress &amp; sit deeper in the stretch.
