Happy New Year! It’s about that time when many choose to reflect and set fresh goals and intentions. Living a healthier lifestyle and losing weight are some of the most popular resolutions every year. It’s evident when you visit your local gym once the holidays are over – the place is packed, the machines are full, and there’s no parking. Hello, anxiety!
Hooping is a full-body exercise that hasn’t fizzled out for me like my gym-going phases. It’s so much more desirable to blast an awesome playlist and grab a hoop to start rockin’ (and squatting, ab squeezing, and jump-hooping) than to zone out in front of a TV screen on an elliptical. It’s portable, spontaneous, and effective. No excuses to skip it…but you really won’t want to 🙂
Not only is hooping healthy for the body, it’s an exercise in mindfulness. With practice, you will one day stumble into flow. The benefits of flow are many: self-confidence. focus, and joy, to name a few. It’s what truly caught me, and motivated me to continue hooping and, in turn, exercising. Finding flow takes practice, and then drives you to practice. It’s pretty sweet.
