December is bringing up all kinds of emotions for me...excitement, anticipation, stress, nostalgia...the list goes on. I bet I'm not alone when I say the holidays can sometimes spiral us into a bit of a frenzy and then once Dec 26 hits there's such a crash...or maybe the crash happens in January when our bills arrive.
To keep things in perspective I have a couple of challenges going on that will bring me back to reality and give myself the gift of perspective.
Of course it involves hula hoops!
One challenge is a month long global connection with other hoopers who are embracing the new year by celebrating with a new hoop dance move or experience. Deanne Love of HoopLovers in Australia, the hoop mamma of all hoop mammas and creator of the Hoop Love Coach training I took this year has started this wonderful challenge and we can all take part just by hooping it up a bit and using #dancember in our social media. Simple and energizing! It is only day 3 and I love how I am feeling! I have found time to work one song into my crazy workday - and if I can do that I know you can too:)
The great thing about this challenge is it gives us a focus for our hoop dance each day. You can check me out on Instagram @carronhoops and notice I am double-ing up with #onesongdanceparty as well;)
The goal = get moving, clear our minds, reset our emotions and give ourselves a treat that will actually help us work off those cherry balls and gingerbread men.
Keeping with the theme of giving, I hope you sign up for my monthly email - this month I have a special deal on for return hoopers thinking of getting back into the hoop in January!
