What is Hump Day Hearts?
My name is Brendon Payne. I first created Sequel Life, a brand focused on helping everyone live a happy and healthy lifestyle. Then in the beginning of 2014 I created a project called Hump Day Hearts. The idea is simple. I was getting concerned with the amount of people looking to Instagram for help and inspiration but instead being bombarded with "challenges" or giveaways. Don't get me wrong, I have hosted many challenges and probably will again. However, it was getting to a point where people were overly concerned with winning or getting more followers. I do have some sponsors who like to surprise participants with gifts. It goes perfectly with the HDH theme of giving selflessly. I never ask people to tag when they post. I want it to be natural and NOT in order to win something. There is no worth in the number of followers, only in the person it represents. Quality over quantity! This is a place to connect with like minded people around the world. People who want to spread peace and love. Here you can connect, share, and be inspired.
It happens every Wednesday, hump day. I ask people to take a quick moment to post any heart opening yoga pose. In doing so, they show a little self love at least once a week. Self love is crucial these days. HDH is also a good time to send some love to someone else who may need some encouragement. Think of it as a love offering to the world. The next day, I go through and pick a few posts to repost on my account. Since this is a global initiative, The feature post literally spreads love from around the world! It's a pretty amazing thing to be a part of. I encourage you to follow the @HumpDayHearts account on Instagram as well as search the #HumpDayHearts gallery to see posts from around the world.
