This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.
Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.
Never not reblog
Tumblr got anxiety advice. Fuck yeah.
Read this earlier, and it helped me a lot tonight.
A few days ago I tried on some pants that I could easily fit into not even 3 months ago, and that day I had to pull and pull and almost rip them apart to get them up over my butt and hips. I felt awful and disgusting. Why? Because they’re a size Medium/38. The first thought that popped into my head was “I’m a size LARGE now?? I’M LARGE??”. The next thought that popped into my head was “I need to lose weight and do lots of cardio and eat no carbs and only eat salads for dinner and lunch so I can be
sizesmall again”. But the thing is that I’m not a size medium, or a a size large, or a size small. I have sweatpants in size XS that are really loose on me, and I now have jeans in size M that are too small for me. A stupid label does not define me, and it never will. A friend of mine once said “if your pants are too small, you just have buy new pants”, and it really is that simple.
When I look at my legs today I look like the heart eyes emoji.
I love my legs.
I love my body.
OH MY GOD I WILL NEVER GET OVER THIS YOUR LEGS ARE A M A Z I N GThis is actually the story of my life right now

No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.
This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.
Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.
We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.
