"For each of us there is some mission in life if we but find it. All have some definite thing to do, something for which they have been created; and only the doing of this thing will justify their existence here on earth. If we come into the world and occupy space and time without giving back for this privilege, we have not justified ourselves, and our lives in the end are barren." ~ Hay

Risky Business

When was the last time you danced?  I don’t mean at your Cousin Vinnie’s wedding!  What  I mean is the last time you put on your favorite music, turned up the volume and let your spirit soar?  When was the last time you felt free?  Wouldn’t you like to forget about your responsibilities, stress and the everyday minor annoyances of life for just a little while?  It’s time to feed that inner child from within.  So take those old records off the shelf…..

Okay, you probably don’t still have your old record player.  The good news is technology has made it super easy to find just about any song you want to hear.  You can take your wireless laptop into any room and find just about any song on YouTube.   Dancing is very liberating. I must advise, however, to try this when nobody is home.  The reason is that I want you to feel uninhibited to express yourself without the judgment of others.  Dancing is a great way to burn extra calories while getting your heart rate up. Dancing will build up your strength, muscles and endurance.  You may find you get winded pretty quickly.  Pause and take some deep breaths.  Please do not overdo it.  You are probably not 20 anymore.  It is important to periodically monitor your pulse to make sure you are in range.  Dancing makes you feel grounded and centered and brings out the kid in you. Please don’t forget to do some warm-up stretches beforehand.  It is very easy to pull a muscle.  Again, you can find a wide array of warm-up exercises on YouTube.  Do you remember Jane Fonda?  All her exercise routines are on YouTube.  You have no excuses! 

Let's get physical!
Have fun and let foot loose.  It’s Risky Business, but someone has to do it!!
