improve breathing

blackpink better come back hard as hell next month. i feel like their other songs were just…practice? they felt too safe. i want them to really play with rosé and jennie’s vocals. i want lisa to have more than 6.3 seconds on a song. i want to hear jisoo’s vocal improvements even just a little. i want complex dances bc we all know they can fucking handle it with the way their breathing has improved during their live sets recently.

You are such a lovely person. A beautiful addition to this planet. A wonder to this universe. No one is really quite like you, and that’s what makes you so special.

Oil Pulling: The Basics


Oil pulling. It whitens your teeth, improves your breath, helps your skin and even helps increase energy. So why isn’t everyone doing it?

I’ve been oil pulling for about six months now and, being someone who has always been slightly OCD about oral health, I wanted to share this Ayurvedic practice because it genuinely works!

What is it?

Oil pulling is literally the practice of swishing about a tablespoon of oil around your mouth, first thing in a morning (and on an empty stomach in general) for about 15-20 minutes. It originated in India thousands of years ago, but has been increasingly used medically in the US and UK since the 1990s. The idea is that the scummy layer that builds up in your mouth overnight sticks in the oil so you can spit it out. This is different to just brushing your teeth in the morning, where you move the bacteria around your mouth a bit rather than completely removing it.

What are the benefits?

There are many claims worldwide from people who have experienced benefits from oil pulling, including help with skin conditions, arthritis, asthma, headaches, hormone imbalances, infections, liver problems etc. However, the main and direct benefits of oil pulling are:

- Whiter teeth

- Healthier gums

- Less sensitive teeth

- Better breath

- Strengthens teeth, jaw and gums

- Prevents mouth bleeding and diseases

How do I do it?

If this sounds like something you think you’ll benefit from, this is how to get started:

1. Get some oil!

Traditionally, people oil pull with either sesame oil or coconut oil. I now alternate between the two, but I would recommend doing it with coconut oil as it has added health benefits and tastes nice!

2. When you wake up in the morning, before you brush your teeth, get one tablespoon of oil and put it in your mouth.

This might sound like an extra thing to do in the morning, but I find that I wake up and am oil pulling while I get showered/dressed. Once you then spit the oil out, you can brush your teeth.
Note: You must swish the oil round your mouth for at least 15 minutes, because otherwise all of the scum won’t get into the oil. You’ll know if you’ve done it right if the oil goes from being clear (when you first put it in your mouth) to being thicker and white.

3. Spit it out into the bin or toilet, not the sink.

When the bacteria is in the oil, it becomes pretty gross (even toxic, some say). So it needs to be spat out where it can be disposed of. Ideally you should spit it into the bin because the oil can clog up the pipes. However, I usually spit it into the toilet, and spray a bit of bathroom cleaner down there before I flush for good measure!

4. Inspect your clean, sparkly teeth and brush your teeth as normal.

It’s as simple as that! I will usually clean my tongue with an Ayurvedic tongue scraper after I oil pull, then brush my teeth with a toothpaste without Fluoride or Sodium Laureth Sulfate. However, you can just do whatever it is you usually do!

                                                         Enjoy! 

Remember, an intimate connection does not have to be with another person. Do not allow yourself to be brought down if you haven’t yet found another person to spend the rest of your life with. You already have an intimate relationship, and that is with yourself.

honestly what did Twice do to receive hate. If you didn’t notice they always say they’re lacking a lot and that they’ll keep on working hard every time they win something. why do y'all make them feel like they’re not deserving of anything. give them room to breathe and improve you monsters

Anyone who cannot accept you for who you truly are does not deserve to be in your life to begin with. Only surround yourself with those whose love is unconditional.

anonymous asked:

Hey Jax, I've been trying to get in better shape, but I have pretty weak lungs, so my breath gives out way before my muscles do. do you have any tips to help me strengthen my breathing.

Gradual improvement. As a kid who used to have Asthma I can tell you what helped me was gradual improvement.

If you can run 5 minutes then run out a breath realize that. Write it down and then go Okay I ran 5 minutes last time and I started getting winded so next time I’m gonna try and do 6 or 7 minutes pushing myself but staying safe.

Okay now 6 and 7 minutes is easy so I’m gonna go for 10 minutes.

then 15, then 20. So you just gotta keep training yourself to get better. 

Shit if you have fuckin Asthma and just start off saying 

“I’m gonna run 6 miles today and I’m not gonna stop no matter what”

I admire your tenacity but all you are doing is putting yourself in danger of having an Asthma attack and choking to death and TRUST ME I had an Asthma attack in 8th grade and that SHIT Was HORRIFYING i was trying so hard to catch my breath and couldn’t and thought i was gonna die. 

So again

SMALL IMPROVEMENTS are the key. take 3 steps forward 1 back if you have to. Thats whats gonna help you improve your heart and lung endurance.

Hope that helped

Day 504 - I finally got to play Breath of the Wild and I’m overwhelmed by the sheer amount of THINGS in it! Spent a solid five minutes just standing around some goats telling them how cute they were.
