How to Make an Origami Whale

Posted: 27 Jan 2020 04:00 PM PST

An origami whale is a fun project for anyone who loves marine life. Making a whale is relatively simple for anyone who knows some basic origami folds. You will need a piece of origami paper and a pair of scissors. Carefully fold the paper to create the whale's body and small details like the flippers and tail.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Making the Guidelines

  1. Lay a square piece of origami paper on a flat surface. A good starting paper size to use is . If your piece of paper has a white side and a colored side, place the colored side face down on the table. That side will form the outer part of the whale.[1]

    • Bigger pieces of paper are easier to work with. If you're a beginner, practice folding techniques with a bigger piece of paper.
  2. Fold the paper in half, open it, and fold it in half the other way. Rotate the paper until it looks like a diamond with 1 corner pointing towards you. Bring the bottom point to the top point and flatten the page. Afterward, open the paper and repeat the fold with the opposite corners.[2]

    • The paper will have a horizontal and vertical crease running through its center. These creases are guidelines you can use to help you fold the paper into the shape of a whale.
  3. Fold the top edges to the center crease. Start with the right side. Bring the right edge over until it aligns with the vertical center crease. Carefully flatten the paper to create another crease. Repeat this with the top left edge without opening the paper back up.[3]

    • Make sure the paper is oriented in a diamond shape before you fold it.
    • To make a good crease, hold the paper still with a free finger. Pin the flap of paper in place as you smooth it out.
  4. Flip the paper over and bring the tail to the top point. Your paper will look like a kite at this point. Position it so the thin tail points toward you. Then, bring the tail up until it is over the uppermost corner and crease the fold.[4]

    • If your paper has a white backside, you will be making this fold on the colored side.

[Edit]Creating the Whale's Shape

  1. Turn the paper over and open the pockets with your finger. The folded kite will have 2 little pockets along its bottom edge. Grasp the flaps by their free edges in the center of the paper. Use your finger to move the pockets away from the table. Push against their free edges to make them stand up.[5]

    • For the best result, work with 1 pocket at a time.
  2. Bring the pocket's tip over to the center and flatten it. When you lift the pocket flaps away from the page, the paper's left and right corners will also lift up. Push against the outside edge of each pocket to bring the corner over to the center of the paper. Then, smooth them out to form a crease.[6]

    • When this fold is done correctly, the pockets will form big triangles. The paper will look like an uneven diamond.[7]
  3. Fold the paper's top layer straight down. Slide your fingers around the edges of the paper. Separate the top layer from the paper underneath it, then bring the point down. The paper will have a crease about ¼ of the way up from the bottom, level with the diamond's left and right corners. Fold the paper down along this line.[8]

    • Make sure you only fold the top layer, or else the paper won't be in the correct shape for the next step. After you make the fold, the paper will be in the shape of a perfect diamond.
  4. Flip the paper over and push the fin flaps to the left. After you turn the paper over, orient it so the diamond's longer corners point to the right and left. The flaps are in the middle. Push them over and flatten them against the paper.[9]

  5. Turn the paper over and fold the left point to the center. Flip the paper vertically, keeping the fin flaps pointed towards the left. Then, grab the left corner and align it with the paper's center point. Crease the fold to finish it.[10]

    • Be careful about how you flip the paper. Flipping it the wrong way can affect how your whale turns out.
  6. Fold the bottom edge about ⅓ of the way up the paper. Hold the paper still with the sides of your hands. Carefully bring the bottom edge up slightly, pushing it onto the whale's body and flattening it. This fold determines how wide the whale's body will be.[11]

    • Making the fold too big can make the whale's body look too small. You only need to fold the edge up a little, enough to make it horizontally flat.
  7. Bring the top half of the whale down over the bottom half. Fold the entire whale in half along the horizontal crease running through the center. Once you do this, you will be able to see the shape of the whale's body.[12]

    • The top half of the paper will overhang the bottom half slightly. This is okay and will be fixed in the next step.
  8. Turn the overhanging top edge down and tuck it into the whale. Flip the whale over so pointed edge is on top and the flat edge is on the bottom. Grasp the pointed edge and fold it down against the whale's body. Then, unfold it and open the whale's top edge. Put the fold inside the whale to finish its basic shape.[13]

    • Take a look at your work. Make sure both sides of the whale look even. The top and bottom edges will both be level.

[Edit]Finishing the Flippers and Tail

  1. Move the whale onto its back and pull the fin flaps out. The whale's back is the shorter side. You will see 2 flaps of paper near the whale's head. Move each flap back away from the head at a diagonal angle, taking care not to pull them too far. Pull them about ⅔ of the way towards the whale's body and down.[14]

    • If you move the flippers too close to the body, they won't stand out. Also, pull them down a little so the tips reach above the body.
    • Fold the flippers carefully, since the thin origami paper can tear.
  2. Fold the whale's tail straight up. Grasp the tip and move the tail up, away from the whale's body. When you do this correctly, the tail's inner edge will form a perfect diagonal. Press down hard on it to make a good crease.[15]

    • Adjust the fold to change the tail's size. Folding more of the tail makes it bigger. Change it according to how you want your whale to look.
  3. Open the whale and cut a slit in the tail. Unfold the tail, then spread apart the whale along its top edge. Look for the crease in the tail you made with your last fold. Use a sharp pair of scissors to cut along the center of the tail to that crease.[16]

    • If you don't like doing scissors, you can skip this part. Instead, leave your whale's tail folded.
  4. Fold the whale's tail flaps up against one another. Close the whale back up, then separate the tail flaps. Grasp the flap closest to you, folding it so it points up towards the ceiling. Fold the other flap in the opposite direction until it is behind the first flap, perfectly aligned with it.[17]

    • Push the flaps hard together so they stay in place, or else the tail may unfurl.
  5. Open the tail flaps up and crease them in place. You can adjust the tail flaps to whatever angle you like. Separate them, bringing each flap down so it points out towards the side. When you get them where you want them, press them between your fingers to crease them and hold them in place.[18]

    • Your whale is done! You can try decorating yours, drawing on an eye or mouth if you'd like, or you can start over and make another one.

[Edit]Tips

  • There are many different ways to make an origami whale. You may discover a different fold that gives your whale a unique appearance.
  • Practice makes perfect. If you make a mistake, get another piece of paper and start again.
  • Using bigger sheets of paper can make the project easier. Also, try using paper that has different colors or patterns on each side.
  • If you're having trouble making the whale, study some basic origami folds first. Practice with easier projects, such as dogs or butterflies.

[Edit]Warnings

  • Be cautious when using scissors and other sharp tools. Keep children away from them.

  • Paper

How to Be Happy After a Breakup

Posted: 27 Jan 2020 08:00 AM PST

Breakups are incredibly difficult. If you've just broken up with someone you care about, you may feel sad, angry, lost, or scared. The good news is that these feelings won't last forever. After the breakup, give yourself some time and space to process your grief. When you're ready, use the wisdom and experience you gained from the relationship to move forward with your life. Take time to reconnect with things that brought you joy before the breakup, and look for new forms of fulfillment as well.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Coping with Negative Feelings

  1. Give yourself time to grieve. Don't try to force yourself to move on or "get over it" before you are ready. No matter what the circumstances of the breakup were, you've experienced a loss, and it's natural to have a lot of feelings to work through.[1]
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 1.jpg
    • You will probably experience ups and downs during the grieving and healing process. You may feel much better one day, and then depressed or angry again the next. This emotional roller coaster can be frustrating or even frightening, but it is totally normal.
  2. Acknowledge how you feel without judgment. Whenever you feel really overwhelmed or down, find a quiet place to sit and just allow yourself to feel. Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and mindfully make note of the thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations you are experiencing. Don't criticize or analyze what you're thinking and feeling—just recognize it.[2]
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 2.jpg
    • For example, you might think to yourself, "I'm thinking about Madeline again. There's a knot in my upper back. I feel so sad."
    • Release your feelings in a healthy way, such as by crying or talking to a friend. You might also find it helpful to write down what you are feeling or express it through art or music. You can even write a letter to your ex pouring out all your feelings (but destroy it when you're done so that you won't be tempted to send it).
    • Being mindful of your feelings and being able to identify them can help them feel less overwhelming.
  3. Tell yourself that what you are feeling is temporary. It may be hard to imagine right now, but you will not feel this way forever. Think of your sadness about the breakup as an injury that is healing. It will hurt for a while and the pain may be worse some days than others, but the hurt will eventually fade.[3]
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 3.jpg
    • The amount of time it takes to move beyond a breakup varies from one person (and breakup) to another. Just take it one day at a time.[4]
  4. Replace negative thoughts with more realistic ones. When you hear that negative or self-critical voice inside your head, stop and ask yourself, "Is that thought realistic? Is it helpful? Is it something I would say to a good friend?" If the answer to any of those questions is "no," replace the thought with something more realistic and constructive. This way, you can help your unhappy brain make the transition to positive thinking.[5]
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 4.jpg
    • For example, if you find yourself thinking, "Nobody will ever love me like Bert did. I'll be alone forever," replace that thought with something like, "What I had with Bert was great in a lot of ways, but we broke up for a reason. I'm going to try and make the most of being single for now and see what happens next."
  5. Avoid blaming yourself for what happened. Self-blame is common after a breakup, but you probably both had a part to play in what happened. It's okay (and, in fact, healthy) to acknowledge the mistakes you made in the relationship, but try to think of those mistakes as an opportunity to grow and do better in the future.[6]
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 5.jpg
    • You might also blame your partner for what happened, especially if they broke up with you. Remind yourself that it's probably for the best that they let you go, since you're now free to find someone who's a better match for you (if that's what you want).
  6. Reach out to family and friends for support. Whenever you feel overwhelmed and lonely, pick up your phone and call or text a close friend or relative. Talking to someone can distract you, help you work through your feelings, or just remind you that you're not alone.[7]
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 6.jpg
    • Chances are you know someone who has been through a breakup. They can lend you a sympathetic ear and offer advice for dealing with your feelings.
    • If you don't have anyone to talk to, consider calling a crisis line or joining an online discussion group for people going through breakups.
    • If you do join an online group, look for one that is moderated, like the forums at PsychCentral. Moderated forums have administrators who monitor the discussion to ensure that there is no bullying or other forms of abuse in the community.
  7. Use positive self talk to combat negative beliefs about yourself. A breakup is personal, so it's normal for you to wonder what you did wrong. However, the breakup shouldn't change the way you feel about yourself. Everyone goes through breakups, and many relationships aren't meant to last. Don't let thoughts like "I'm not good enough," "No one wants to go out with me," or "I'm not attractive enough" take root in your mind.
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 7.jpg
    • Don't let these types of thoughts follow you into your next relationship. They aren't true, so don't allow them to negatively impact your future.
    • If you notice any of these negative thoughts, challenge them and replace them with positive self talk. First, look for 3 pieces of evidence against the negative statement. Then, replace it with a positive statement about yourself. You can find worksheets online to help you do this![8]
    • For example, let's say you're thinking "I'm unlovable." Your 3 pieces of evidence that this isn't true might be that your parents, best friend, and pet all love you. You might tell yourself, "I'm deeply loved by the people in my life, plus I love myself."

[Edit]Moving Forward with Your Life

  1. Make peace with the reasons why your relationship didn't work out. At first, it can be hard to see the cracks in your relationship, but there's likely a reason it didn't work out. Recognizing this reason can help you move on. Think about why your relationship ended, such as due to incompatibility, different goals, bad timing, or unmet expectations. Write down why you think the relationship ended to help you find closure.
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 8.jpg
    • When you start to feel emotional again, use this exercise to help you rationalize why the relationship was meant to end. Tell yourself, "I'm feeling sad about the breakup again, but we had different goals for the future. I want a partner who wants the same things I do."
  2. Focus on caring for yourself. Help yourself heal after your breakup by practicing self-care. It's hard to be happy if you're not taking care of your basic physical, emotional, and practical needs. Self-care can mean a lot of things, but a few of the basics include:[9]
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 9.jpg
  3. Work on achieving some personal goals. Think about things you've always wanted to accomplish, or set some new goals for yourself and create a realistic plan to work on them. It's easy to put your personal goals and ambitions aside while you're caught up in a relationship, so now is the perfect time to start working on them.[10]
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 10.jpg
    • Working on your goals can help boost your confidence, give you something to focus on aside from the breakup, and remind you of who you are as an individual.
    • Your goals don't need to be anything big or grandiose. You could start with simple things like reorganizing your desk or taking a 15-minute walk every day.
    • Keep a list of your daily accomplishments, and remember to reward yourself when you meet a goal!
  4. Do things you find fun and fulfilling. Now is the perfect time to pick up a new hobby or rekindle your interest in an old one! If you want to try something new, consider signing up for a class or joining a local group that shares your interests.[11]
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 11.jpg
    • If you're the creative type, you could try painting, doing crafts, or learning a musical instrument. If you're more athletic or outdoorsy, try taking up a new sport or going on hikes.
    • Doing group activities is also a great way to make new friends and grow your support network.
    • If there are any activities that you particularly associate with your ex, you might want to take a break from them for a while.
  5. Resist the urge to check in on what your ex is doing. If you find yourself agonizing about how your ex is feeling and what they are up to, look for ways to distract yourself or channel those feelings elsewhere. For example, if you are fighting the temptation to look at your ex's Facebook page, you might call a friend or write about it in a journal.
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 12.jpg
    • If you and your ex are connected on social media, it may be a good idea to unfriend or even block them. That will help reduce the temptation to torture yourself by checking their profile.
  6. Look at the relationship as a learning experience. Once you've had some time and distance from the relationship, take time to think about it from a wiser and more objective point of view. Think about how to use your experiences, both good and bad, to help you in future relationships or even in your life as a single person.
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 13.jpg
    • For example, maybe you've picked up on some red flags to avoid in future potential partners. You might also think of ways you can improve your own behavior in relationships going forward.
    • It might help to make a list of what things were good and bad about the relationship. Think about specific changes you might make based on your insights. For example, "Lucy was funny and exciting to hang out with, but she didn't really share many of my interests. In future relationships, I'll prioritize finding someone who has more in common with me."
    • After some reflection, you might even decide that you prefer being single for now, and that's perfectly valid! Don't let anyone pressure you into looking for a new relationship if you don't want one.
  7. See a counselor if you feel you need extra help. Ask your doctor to recommend a therapist, or do an online search for a counselor who has experience dealing with relationship issues. A counselor can help you work through your feelings and recommend good strategies for dealing with them.
    Be Happy After a Breakup Step 14.jpg
    • You may need to see a counselor if your grief is interfering with your ability to function in your daily life, work, or relationships, or if you feel like you aren't making enough progress on your own.

[Edit]Tips

  • Don't rush into any new relationships before you've had some time to heal. A breakup can leave you feeling confused and emotionally vulnerable. You may also still be dealing with feelings for your ex, which could have a negative impact on other relationships.[12]
  • Even if you're the one who initiated the breakup, it's still natural to feel a sense of grief and loss.
  • It is possible to stay friends with someone after breaking up with them. Don't try to force it, however. You and your ex will probably both need a lot of time and space after the breakup, and it's possible that you'll never be able to fully connect as friends.

How to Do the Surya Namaskar

Posted: 26 Jan 2020 04:00 PM PST

The Surya Namaskar (sun salutation) is a series of 12 yoga poses meant to give praise to the sun. Traditionally, you do these poses in the morning to greet the rising sun and celebrate the start of a new day. After you move through the poses, go back through the same poses in the opposite direction until you return to your beginning pose. The Surya Namaskar A is just one of many variants on this sequence.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Opening the Surya Namaskar

  1. Start with the mountain pose. This pose is also known as the Tadasana Namaskar. Stand up straight and tall with your feet planted firmly on the floor, hip-distance apart. Balance your weight evenly on both feet. Let your hands hang at your sides with the palms facing forward and the fingers open, in a receiving position.[1]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 2 Version 2.jpg
    • Alternatively, you can bring your hands together in front of your chest in a prayer position. Press the tips of your thumbs against your sternum, over your heart chakra.[2]
    • Once you are in the mountain pose, breathe slowly and steadily, and focus on finding your center.[3]
  2. Raise your arms in an upward salute (Urdhva Hastasana). Inhale deeply and look upward. Slowly raise your arms above your head with the palms together and your fingers pointing straight upward. Push your hips forward a little so that you enter a slight backbend.[4]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 3 Version 2.jpg
    • Keep your shoulders back and down while you are in this pose.
  3. Move into a standing forward bend (Uttanasana). Exhale and bend forward at the hips, keeping your back and legs straight. If you can, bring your chest against your thighs and aim the crown of your head at the floor. Place your hands flat on the floor, or rest them on a block if you cannot reach the floor.[5]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 3 Version 3.jpg
    • Try to line your fingertips up with your toes, with your hands positioned on the outsides of your feet.
    • Keep your back as straight as possible while you are in this pose. Your back should not be rounded.
  4. Enter a half-standing forward bend (Ardha Uttanasana). Inhale and slowly slide your hands up along your shins. Raise your head so that you are looking slightly forward and unbend slightly at the hips so that your chest is no longer resting against your thighs. Keep your back flat and straight. Create a triangle between your feet, head, and hips.[6]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 4 Version 2.jpg
    • Alternatively, you can keep your fingertips resting on the floor for this pose.[7]

[Edit]Moving through the Middle of the Routine

  1. Exhale and return to the forward fold. From the half-standing forward bend, slowly return to your previous position. Slide your hands back down your shins so that you are grasping your ankles. Make sure to keep your back straight as you bend forward and rest your chest against your thighs.[8]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 5 Version 3.jpg
  2. Get into a plank pose. Inhale and place your hands flat on the floor. Carefully step back with both feet, one foot at a time, extending your legs straight out behind you with your toes curled under you. Keep your arms straight and your shoulders directly above your wrists, and keep your back straight and flat.[9]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 6 Version 2.jpg
    • Your hands should be shoulder-width apart, and your feet should be hip-distance apart.
  3. Lower yourself into a low pushup. This is also known as the 4-limbed staff pose or Chaturanga Dandasana. Exhale and bend your arms at the elbows so that your torso is parallel to the floor. Push back through your legs into your heels, keeping your legs straight out behind you.[10]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 7 Version 2.jpg
    • If you're not strong enough to do a low pushup, lower yourself down so that your knees, chin, and chest are on the floor.
  4. Inhale and enter an upward dog pose (Urdhva Mukha Svanasana). Push your toes out behind you so that the tops of your feet are resting flat on the floor. Keeping your arms straight and your hands resting flat on the floor, raise your head and push your chest forward and your shoulders back so that you enter a backbend.[11]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 8 Version 2.jpg
    • Allow your shins to rest on the floor, but try to keep your thighs and hips slightly elevated.

[Edit]Returning to the Opening Pose

  1. Get into a downward dog pose (Adho Mukha Svanasana). Exhale and roll your feet back onto your toes, keeping your legs straight out behind you. Let your head hang down and move your hips up and back, pushing through your shoulder blades. Keep your hands flat on the floor and your arms straight.[12]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 9 Version 3.jpg
    • Keep your back and legs straight and aim your hips directly at the ceiling.
  2. Move back into the standing forward bend. From the downward dog position, inhale and step forward with one foot, then the other. Move your feet so that they are in line with your hands and closer to the front of the mat. Keep your legs and back straight, and bend at the hips.[13]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 10 Version 3.jpg
  3. Inhale and move back into the upward salute. Slowly straighten up until you are standing upright, then raise your arms above your head, turning your gaze upward. Keep your hands facing each other or touching, palm to palm. Push your hips forward and your shoulders back so that you enter a slight backbend.[14]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 11 Version 3.jpg
    • Keep your knees very slightly bent during this pose.
  4. Exhale and return to the mountain pose. Slowly lower your arms and straighten your back. Let your hands hang at your sides in the forward-facing receptive position, or hold them in front of your chest in the prayer position. Make sure your weight is evenly distributed between both your feet.[15]
    Do the Surya Namaskar Step 13.jpg
    • This will return you to the original pose and bring the Surya Namaskar sequence full circle.

[Edit]Tips

  • Use fluid, connected movements to move between positions.
