The funny spin on hula hooping

I think of the hula hoop as a genius type of invention. Born in the 1950’s as a toy, it has evolved into being many things to many different types of people. I’ve heard it described as a sport-like activity, offering a vigorous and full body workout, an instant stress reliever, a child’s game but when used by a adult, an alternative to boring types of exercise. As a dance form, it provides a creative outlet with endless motion as the hooper loops around performing difficult and “effortful” gained skills. I have seen it used as a prop in competitive olympic workouts.  Some have even claimed feeling a spiritual significance as they circled, looped and flowed within the symbolic circle, a meaning understood throughout most cultures as “the circle of life”. But is there something funny about hula hooping? I think so. When I first tried hula hooping...

Twisting more fun into your party celebration

We love parties and the excitement of planning for the fun! Finding the best venue, entertainer and assorted activities doesn’t have to be challenging. Great memories are almost a guarantee when you consider the ages of your guests and offer a variety of activities. If one child doesn’t appear to like having either their face, arm or hand  painted, having another activity to follow, may ignite that smile that adults love to watch for. Adding balloon twisting is one recommendation I like to suggest. It’s fun for kids to pick their favorite color balloons and watch the squeaky, twisting, (sometimes popping) completed form come to be. The smiles are numerous as guests watch on. An additional benefit is that it can also be a take home favor, giving your guests memories long after the party has ended.         🙂 🙂...

My Monster Thinking

Unless you are perfect, we all have it! Thinking certain thoughts that can prevent the possibility of a more peaceful and enjoyable day! The solution may seem simple, like to just stop thinking about them right? Possibly, however it didn’t work that easily for me. I would think things over and over again, with a variety of solutions and a plan that was sure to work the next time around! If my solution worked, it didn’t seem to work for very long. I’d be right back to the thoughts and feelings with a new added frustration of “here I go again.” Thankfully, I realized the insanity of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to have a new outcome. Being somewhat of a visual and creative person, I decided to “get the monsters out of my head and give them a new home.” After all, they had been renting in my head for free. It was about...

Fun in the Snow

Get a little silly with your imagination next time it snows. Instead of making an ordinary snow angel with your kids, add a hula hoop for a halo effect. Most adults think of snow as a burdensome cleanup job and a slippery after the storm accident waiting to happen. Though snowy weather can certainly be dangerous, with careful planning it can be a great excuse to stay off roads and nurture your inner child with some good old fashion fun. Give the gift of Snow Hearts to let others who are also enjoying the snow with you, know just how special they are. Snow fun is limited only by your own creativity. What possibilities can you come up with? Make a snow goddess instead of a snowman. Playing in the snow is another feel good child like activity which can help relieve stress and give you an incredible workout at the same time. If you want to change up your perspective on exercising, instead...

Circling some silly fun around my Christmas Tree

Have you listened to The Chipmunk Song by Alvin & The Chipmunks? That song inspired me while decorating my Christmas tree for the holidays. When I heard the lyric’s “Want a plane that loops the loop, I still want a hula hoop...”. I couldn’t help but to go and get out my best hula hoops. Remember to have silly fun. It will make you and other’s feel great! Thank you Alvin & The Chipmunks for the inspiration!!! The Chipmunk Song by Alvin & The Chipmunks...
