Flying high 🦅 Acrobatics is a part of my life for so long already. I can’t imagine how it feels to do a cartwheel or handstand for the first time. It feels like my body is programmed to do these kind of things. Even if I take a (long) break, it comes back easily. I feel blessed that I have learned these kind of things at a young age. Later, I want to be a crazy granny that still uses cartwheels as a part trick. But. Throw me a ball and I won’t catch it. And when I try to throw it back, be prepared to run because it won’t end up where it should be. Let me run a few miles and my legs are wobbly for days. I will fall of a surfboard before I even get up. And last but not least, I’m the one that hits the lamp when I try to play pool. I think everyone has that little something that feels so normal to them, but might be hard for others. Even when sometimes it can be hard to relate to, think of yourself in a new or unknown situation. And now I wonder. What is your story? What will your party trick be when you are older?

Yesterday I realised how much I actually use my phone. I knew it, but I didn’t knew it... WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook were (mostly) down but I automatically opened these apps so many times. I’m thinking about incorporating a phone-free day once every month. The last time I didn’t touch my phone for an entire day must have been a long time ago. It will be a challenge but for sure a good one. ⚡️ More handstands and less screen time is the way to go! ⚡️
2 hours of handstands and I’m fine. 30 minutes of weight training in the gym and I’m EXHAUSTED and in need of some sugar. Today my body made it clear I need to visit the gym more often (and touch more things than just the floor). So... Gym membership, check. Let’s go! ...but I will still do my handstand practice.
Palm trees are the best trees 🌴
Let’s talk about recovery. What do you do after an intense workout? . I used to neglect this subject for quite some time (and still avoid ice-baths), but my body feels better when I pay more attention to it. Drink enough water, stretch it out, exercises to release the wrists and some gentle movements to improve the circulation. The only thing I couldn’t do myself was to release the muscles in my upper back. After my handstand practice these muscles are sore and I felt like I couldn’t find the right way to improve the healing process. Well... I found it. I tried out this acupressure mat from @spoonk_space and I must admit, I’m more relaxed and my back feels so much better. I lay on the mat for about 20 minutes before I go to bed. It took me (muscles/skin) about a week to get used to the mat, but this one is a keeper! Do you want to try it out for yourself? With the discount code DAISY10 you’ll get 10% off on their website.
The last time I posted a picture of a knot handstand, quite some people asked for a tutorial or video. Well... we didn’t shoot a video. But @sjorsrombouts made some extra pictures ↠ SWIPE! . Make sure your normal hand to hand is solid and you feel comfortable jumping into knot (prep: L-basing and jump into knot on a block). Use a spotter! Get ready as you would for a normal hand to hand, but the flyer places one hand on top of the other on one hand of the base. The base can support one arm or shoulder of the flyer. With this support it is much easier to find the right shape and balance. Flyers don’t forget to PUSH and open your shoulders. For more details or questions ↠ DM!
The best view. I need more of this in my life.
My weekend just started and it is going to be a sunny one! It is about time to get this tan back! . BTW. Today is @freskincare day. Only today I can offer you 50% off with discount code DAISY1. My favourite FRÉ product is the protect me facial moisturiser with SPF30. All products are vegan, cruelty free and they plant an Argan tree in Morocco for every set sold!

Since @sjorsrombouts and I are back home from a long trip, the most frequently asked question is: ‘What is the most beautiful place you have been?’ . To be honest. I don’t know. This is such a difficult question to answer. How can you compare the Himalayas with the crystal clear beaches around El Nido? Or the Taj Mahal with Borobudur? . That answer is simple. You can’t. I guess that is the reason why travelling is so addictive. There are a million ‘most beautiful places in the world’. And you have never seen all of them.
