guided muscle

anonymous asked:

Hey, any advice on how to calm down? Im about to have a panic attack. Please help.

Hey anon,

First step, try to breathe more deeply. It sucks and it’s hard when you’re panicking, but breathing deeper will help you. Try to find 5 things you can see. The identify 4 things you can hear. What are three things that you can feel? Can you identify two smells?

I often carry around a card with things to do in case I have a panic attack. I have calming exercises, reminders of people I can text, and websites I can go to. To get some ideas for what to put on a card (or as a reminder in your phone), check these out:

Stay strong,

murasakidoku  asked:

dearest cube-sama: if you have the time, could you do a similar short guide on shoulders/back muscles?

Okay so let me first say that I am TERRIBLE at drawing back muscles, dear god. I had to do some studying myself before making these illustrations. Anyway, I must remind you that I am NOT the anatomy master here. This is just what I do to draw back muscles, looking up and using photo reference yourself is the best way to learn anatomy. I’m just translating the human body to my own art style. Once you learn anatomy, you can translate the human body to your own style.

Anyway, here:

and see, check it out. The shoulders are being pushed back, like I said when I showed you how to do arms.

It’s important to note how the shoulder-blades overlap the muscles, and vice versa, depending on if the arms are raised or not.

Oh, and here’s a pattern that’ll hopefully simplify the muscle layout a bit. Memorize that pattern, and back muscles’ll be easier.

Anyway, here’s a quick little thing, I hope I helped at least a little bit.it sure helped force me to learn back muscles a bit better.

Homeward, Part One

Homeward, Part 1

You promised yourself you could handle it. You swore things would get better. That you could make them better.

The universe had decided to take your determination and throw it back in your face, spiteful and cruel in its mockery. Maybe you truly had done something to deserve it.

No… that felt like bullshit. Which is why when your boyfriend, after too much beer and too much pent-up aggression, had shoved you against the wall and growled what a nagging, stuck-up bitch you were, you had turned and left the apartment without a word. Insensate to his alcohol-fueled screaming.

He didn’t bother chasing after you. He knew you’d be back. You always came back. Where else would you go?

You rubbed your arms as you walked down the sidewalk, surrounded by crowds of strangers even this late at night. You hadn’t had the wherewithal to grab your jacket, your phone, or even your wallet. There had been no time; the surge of anger and sharp hatred had threatened to erupt from within your chest, and you’d rushed out the door before the situation escalated.

Not because you still cared about your domestic partner. That time had passed long ago. But lashing out at a member of the Hand was a surefire way to lose a few fingers, toes, or worse.

Your options were limited and decreasing as the minutes ticked by. There were a few places still open where you could take shelter from the biting wind. But that would only solve the immediate problem of being exposed, and do nothing for the long-term crisis that had become your existence.

No. This was going to end, one way or another. Tonight. You were sick and tired of the anger, the terror, the shouting. Something had to give, and with the ways things were going, it would be your sanity or your life.

Turning left along the next avenue, you changed course as you grit your teeth against the chill, steeling yourself for what was to come. It was going to be painful in a way that only emotional vulnerability could be. Even though objectively you understood you had nothing to be ashamed of, it didn’t damper the heat in your cheeks.

There was one place you could go. One person you could turn to. It was just a matter of swallowing your pride and asking for help.

Plum Wine

Rating: Mature
warning: NSFW
~~~

The best sensation–after hours of fighting, and running, and screaming, and war–is when he has her trapped right beneath him.

Hips flush together–united–elbow pressed against the mattress of his cot to hold him up, to keep him from crushing her (what a silly thought, she could easily take his weight without injury, without complaint, without a sign of discomfort and that’s necessary to him) and to keep his eyes burning right into hers.

Love Remains

Pairing: Steve x reader

Anon prompt: Imagine Steve having to take care of your daughter after you died giving birth.            

CW: maternal death

Word count: 1,628

*wrote this while dealing with writer’s block for my Jewish Bucky fic hope it’s decent!!*

How could this have happened?

This wasn’t fucking 1930, it was 2016. People had phones that doubled as computers, could talk to anyone in the world within seconds. The technological evolution extended into medicine as well, providing doctors and nurses with access to new equipment and remedies and knowledge that people in the 30s would only have dreamed of.

And yet, in the most advanced nation on the globe, you still died brutally and suddenly in childbirth; the C-section that successfully gave your daughter life claiming yours in the process.

Steve watches in horror as doctors swarm your broken body, finding himself being restrained by nurses as he attempts to rush forward as well.

Within minutes, it’s all over.

You’re gone and you’re never coming back.

“Unbridled”- A Be My Princess Fanfiction featuring Prince Edward Levaincois

Warning!  Smexy times ahead with Ed!

Rated “M” for Mature

It was a lovely day for a ride.

The wind that whipped through your hair as you galloped through the trees atop your palomino mare Mariposa was sweet and invigorating, but did little to cool down the temperature of your overheated body.  True, the mid-day summer sun that beamed overhead was cause enough to make you sweat, not to mention the layers of formal riding clothes you had to don as befitting the future princess of Charles Kingdom.  Indeed, the exertion involved in staying atop your energetic equine alone could rival any cardio workout, and you wished you could blame that, as well as a thousand other causes for your sweltering skin, ragged breath, and flushed cheeks that inflamed your agitated form. Instead, the true cause of the heat that threatened to consume you was the innocently oblivious male riding alongside of you.

I wrote this freakin’ aaaaaaaaaaaages ago and never posted - for @kenobrea, who had such lovely musings on a tatooed!Obi-Wan…

On Alderaan, tattoos represent things which are mostly unwanted. 

Slaves, made unfortunate and captive by their branding; pirates and gangs, bringing their curse of solitude upon themselves with needles and splattered ink. The Houses of Antilles and Organa, so determined in their belief that purity of feeling took precedence over the temporary body, have been slow, over the centuries and millennia, to accept that their fleshly vessels could be anything more – that the bright markings their near-Human and alien Galactic comrades could mean something so integral that they would cease to be what they were without them.

It is still a shock to Bail, sometimes – an aesthetic one, for the most part, and one which provokes no greater or shameful emotion – to see Kiffar eyes glowing out of swathes of angry color, or to notice the designs of his fellow Senators fading and reshaping themselves over time. When he meets his first clone commanders, and sees for himself what pride they take in their choices of expression, he can only marvel at it. He cannot, as yet, understand.

To say that he would be shocked when he first sees Obi-Wan in a state of undress is, therefore, quite the understatement.
