I love flying.  I think it’s because I am pretty much forced to chill.  So I usually read. There have been so many times when I got really inspired while flying and came up with some great ideas. Today I wrote down three things I learned and wanted to look into more on my airplane napkin.  As I am in bed tucked away in a cabin in Colorado I thought man if I don’t write 0 those three things up now it’s probably not gonna happen I have an insane week ahead. SO I thought I would not only look them up but I would share them with you. So just in case your interested as well okay #1 Did you know that Woody Allen writes short stories? I had no idea.  I knew he played the clarinet but he has a collection of short stories ok cool I wanna read  here is a link to some of his short stories.  #2 There is apparently this new trend called “Daybreak” happening in big cities like LA, NYC, Tokyo, Here is the deal. You get your nightlife on but during the day. For instance in DTLA recently there was a dance party that started before work. So people meet up at a location and just let it out just dance thier butts off before they went to work. Other Daybreak events have been over 300 people meet on a boot before work and sing “Let it BE” Or a 200 person hug in the middle of the city all of this before you start you workday.  Read more about Daybreak Here  and the website is here . #3 Actor Jessie  Eisenberg, you know the awesome actor from Social Network,  also writes short stories and his most recent collection sounds genius read more about it here .  Well this is awesome I get to come back to this post in a few days and really dive into my research with these short stories. One of my goal is to write a children’s book full of stories that teach life lessons in an easy to understand playful way.  So this is all good research for me.

I hope you found something interesting too! Oh I am taking the most beautiful drive tomorrow and will be snap chatting the heck out of it if there is wifi of course Janawphoto.  See you through the lens tomorrow!

Good night!

Stay Inspired!

When I was shooting this look for Jamie Ching I died when she told me this trench is from Forever 21 ! Here is the link. Super chic super cool!

This photo got printed in the US weekly to! I photographed these with my canon mark 111 I used 24-70 My aperture was at 4.0 I loved the stairs in the back so I wanted to make sure they were in focus. Shutter speed I adjusted.  ISO was at 100 this was midday.  I edited these images with my preset you can get here.

I’m heading out to Colorado right now so make sure to follow along on instagram and snapchat-Janawphoto to see the beautiful trip!

I was just listing to this ted talk by Glendon Doyle  and she used the word BRUTIFUL describing life. HA! brilliant isn’t she? Its is so true This life is so Beautiful & so Brutal.  It’s all about what we choose to focus on.  Sometimes we can’t help it and the sadness, anger, disappointment, loneliness, all of these very common feelings just take over and that’s ok. Forgive yourself and allow the feeling to pass then use your power to create or rather reveal the miracles that are waiting for you.  Ya know even walking through Paris last week I was so moved and inspired in such a positive way but from time to time there were these thoughts of loneliness. When those feelings came in I would start silently blessing every person that walked by me. Paris is the city of love.  By blessing those lovebirds holding hands I am going to bring more love into my life.

I think its important to transparent. Each day is a practice in being happy and practice in being present.  Each and every one of us on this planet are connected by the fact that there is no day that goes by that we don’t feel like this life is BRUTIFUL.

Stay Inspired!

Fitness friday-how to get a flat stoamche-how to get great abbs-food that help flatten your tummy-i want a flat tummy-foods to eat to releive bloat-jana williams-janafromalabama-fitness blogger-health nutrition-healthy living-toned tummy, crop topshop, herum workout pants,

3 tips for a flat stomach:

  • Drink Water – Staying hydrated is not only important for your mental and physical performance, it’s also a great way to avoid overeating. We often confuse dehydration for hunger pangs. So, the next time you feel like snacking have a tall glass of water first, then see if you’re still hungry in 30 minutes. Don’t like the taste of plain water, add some freshly squeezed lemon. Lemon is rich in Vitamin C and has been known to reduce bloating by acting as a mild, natural diuretic.
  • Up the Fiber Intake – Increasing your daily amount of fiber will help you flatten your belly without feeling like you’re starving yourself. Fiber rich fruits and veggies help you feel full without the extra calories.
  • Get your dairy fix Yogurt – Yogurt is chalk full of healthy bacteria that will help keep your digestive system healthy. Healthier digestive tract equals a happier and flatter belly. Dairy free? No problem. There are many delicious coconut, almond or soy based alternatives. You can find them at your local health foods grocery store
  • Stay Insoired!

    Susan - Hi Jana,

    Huge fan of your photography. Just worries me that you’re telling your readers to eat dairy for their health or a flatter stomach. If you did a bit more research you’d understand why dairy is one of the worst things we can be eating. Cowspiracy, Forks Over Knives, and other documentaries explain this well.
