  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

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.

always re-posting this.

The Catatumbo Lightning Phenomenon

Confined to the skies above Venezuela’s Lake Maracaibo, there are ceaseless streaks of lightning caused by an atmospheric phenomenon that occurs strictly in an area located over the mouth of the Catatumbo River. Due to its location, they have named the phenomenon Catatumbo lightning.

The constant lightning has captivated the interests of scientists, explorers and artists for centuries. After much debate and speculation, the phenomenon is believed to be caused by the interaction of thunderstorms with natural methane and oil deposits in the area.

The lightning can be observed in the Venezuelan horizon up to 280 times an hour and tends to start approximately one hour after dusk. The lightning in this small area is considered to be the world’s largest single generator of tropospheric ozone, that is, ozone that does not replenish the stratospheric ozone layer. For lightning photographers and researchers, it provides the perfect conditions for nearly six months every year and up to ten hours a day.

This book teaches black, Afro-descendent, Afro-Latina, and/or Garifuna girls how to positively describe different hair types instead of using the term “bad hair”. Fun illustrations were created to help describe different types of hair and hairstyles. This book was created to empower little girls so they can embrace and love their beautiful natural hair. This book calls for all of us to work as equal partners to encourage our girls by using proper terminology to describe their hair which is directly linked to their essence and self-esteem.

THIS WAS A CHILDRENS MOVIE

A CHILDRENS BIBLE MOVIE

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Amen

FUN FACT: in hebrew, “feet” is a euphemism for genitals.

so if you ever see “washing feet” in the bible, it, uh. yeah.

(source is my old bible class textbook which i don’t have on me anymore :( )

HOLY SHIT WHAT

I MEAN CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG BUT I SWEAR TO GOD I REMEMBER READING A STORY IN THE BIBLE WHERE JESUS CLEANED THE ‘FEET’ OF A LADY PROSTITUTE INFRONT OF HIS TWELVE DISCIPLES WHO GOT SERIOUSLY GROSSED OUT. THEM GETTING REALLY SUPER GROSSED OUT BY THAT NEVER MADE SENSE TO ME UNTIL NOW.

JESUS CHRIST JESUS.

YOU NASTY.

#WHAT ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO DO WHEN JESUS IS THE ONE WHO NEEDS JESUS

THAT HASHTAG I”m—-—

WHAT

jesus has his feet washed and anointed by a woman a), he washed the feet of his disciples b) and the bible has been translated c)

Okay. I have seen this so many times and I’m about to lose my shit.

The Bible, being largely prose and poetry often employs euphemisms when discussing subjects that were sensitive at the time. UNHEARD OF I know, but bear with me. Sometimes it refers to penises as columns, but if you genuinely believe every time the Bible mentions a column it means dick, you’re sorely mistaken. Feet in Hebrew texts are pretty flexible, “to water the feet” is to piss, to “sleep at someone’s feet” could mean intercourse, AND HEY SOMETIMES WASHING OF THE FEET IS LITERALLY WASHING OF THE FUCKING FEET.

FURTHERMORE. The Bible is comprised of different books, written by different people, in different languages, and those languages have different words with different meanings. The books of John and Luke, where most of the feet washing occurs, were written in Greek, not Hebrew.

Aside from that, let’s shut the hell up and look at the context:

If you have ever had to walk over dirt and sand in sandals, then you know how uncomfortable and dirty your feet would be after a day’s journey. Your sandals are made of animals skins, so they would be utterly filthy and never worn inside. It was customary for the lowest servant of the household to then wash your feet so you’re not tracking mud throughout the house. And if you’re expecting guests, it was a sign of love and respect to wash their feet once they entered your home.

So yeah, it’s either group hand jobs (which seems TOTALLY PLAUSIBLE for devout Jewish teenagers in antiquity) or it was an act of humility and devotion. It was a demonstration of being a servant to your fellow man. It was shocking, not because it was sexual in nature but because he put himself on the floor, a position reserved for the lowest in servitude.

Like, if you legitimately believe he was going around and bathing people’s genitals I don’t even know what to do with you Tumblr. I don’t evennnnnn knowwwwwwwwwwww

In the Tumblr textpost system, historically inaccurate offenses are considered especially heinous. The dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the We Actually Know Shit, Please Cut it Out Unit. These are their stories.
