Sometimes we forget how much time we actually spend sleeping😪. We're more concerned of our posture for a 15min drive over our 8 hour sleeping posture (more like 6 if you're like me and can't leave the dream alone🤓. All the work is so that one day I could actually get ♾ sleep😏).
So whether it's 5 hours or 9 hours of sleep we could all agree we spend a ton of time in any one given position during sleep. Unfortunately often that sleeping position isn't the best for us😓
Yes we're all told time and time again that sleeping on your back is the best position for you. However, I think there is a claim that could be made here🤔.
If you have a hard time sleeping on your back but sleep like a baby on your stomach should we be fighting to become something that just isn't for us or should we focus on creating a better environment for the positions we feel most comfortable in? Especially if forcing ourselves to sleep a certain way leaves of unrested😑 I mean the debate could go on forever but this is just my lens on it
Here is a hack for you stomach sleepers out there. With stomach sleeping a lot of stress is put on the low back because your back is arched throughout the night😪
Try adding a pillow under your stomach to flatten out your back. This can drastically reduce the low back stress of stomach sleeping and could likely have you feeling less back tension in the morning. All because your sleeping posture was slightly changed🤗

Who’s your inspiration? Could be career, fitness, health, creative, what ever your passion is... who inspires you the most? Mine is and always has been @paigehathaway 🙏🏼 if you’ve been following her for as long as I have you will know that life has thrown many curve balls her way and knocked her down only for her to stand up taller and stronger and conquer those curve balls! To meet Paige one day or even to just get noticed by her is very high on my bucket list 🙌🏼💕
Lets face it - as we age, we get stiffer, things ache and we get less mobile. Have you got aches in your upper back/shoulders? .
Try this exercise! .
Put your hand on a wall and keep you arm straight, think about moving your shoulder blade without bending your arm firstly and then hip hinge by pushing your bum as far back as possible. The first couple of times just relax down and allow your chest to drop as deep as it can go towards the floor. You might find that this enough for you! 👉👉
👉👉 If this doesn’t stretch - you can then add in rotation at the bottom of the movement by reaching under the arm that is against the wall. This will change the focus of the stretch slightly and might be more challenging. 👍🏼👍🏼
👍🏼👍🏼 As with all stretches, the key is to relax and breathe in the bottom of the stretch, try not to hold your breath or push to hard. We need to teach your body that these positions are okay. .

// FINDING SPACE \\
How can you find that time and space for yourself today? I was finding it particularly hard as a mum to a busy #toddler and teacher giving my energy to my students to save time and energy for myself. It’s always a challenge, but I feel I have more balance now...carving out some space for myself.💙
I wish it was as easier as jumping on this paddle board in the wide open space of #newzealand last summer!
A bit of a #treattuesday replacing the trusty old garmin with a fancy new fenix 5.
How do you convince the wife it's necessary? By getting her a vivoactive watch of her own too!
Just kidding, it was her idea to go "look". #bestwifeever

Front squats at 110kg for 4x12 followed by accessories then speed squats at 120kg - was very rushed and technique wasn’t what I’d have liked it to be, but squats are starting to feel really good again
✨i didn't slay a killer workout or follow my meal plan perfectly. i didn't get in my 10,000 steps or drink a gallon of water. but do you know what i did do... i put on a smile & i went to back to school night with my kids, my ex & his fiancé.
all of you single parents know how this feels- to have someone else enter into your kids lives. someone that you don't get a choice in picking & will have a huge impact on their future. every single part of me was dreading today & it has nothing to do with her & everything to do with my own insecurities of feeling replaced as a mama.
because when i set my ego aside & see her for who she is... we're a lot more similar than we are different. she's a single mama. a sister. a daughter. a friend. she loves the man that will always hold a special place in my heart & she loves my kids & is kind to them. when i see her as that... all i can do is wish her the very best & send her good vibes.
us women have to stick together. and it's not always easy. in fact it's really freaking hard sometimes. especially when you're hurting. and by no means am i saying that i have been good at this... i'm actually embarrassed to admit how much i've struggled. but i can honestly say it's something that i am mindful of & working on every single day. because it's like buddha said, "holding onto anger is like drinking poison & expecting the other person to die".
so, yeah, i didn't slay some of my physical goals today... but i did something that was even more important for me. i spent time taking care of my heart & my mind & i'm feeling relieved tonight. i'm feeling even closer to my goal of being my best self.
babes, you are so much more than a body. while it's good to chase physical goals, remember to take care of your heart & your mind too. you will never be happy if you neglect one aspect of your being.
what's 1 thing you did today to take care of yourself body, mind or spirit. i want to hear & i want to celebrate with you. 💕 #bodymindspirit#empoweringwomen#inthistogether#powerofshe#goodvibes#radiatepositivity
