I hope you skip. You will find it helps relieve stress and makes you smile. We all need more skipping in our lives for pure joy and carefree living.
I love to dance and I do like the song, "I Hope You Dance." I don't want to miss The Dance, but when it really comes to expressing joy, I like to skip. I thinking skipping is a lost practice in adults. Do you notice kids skipping?
Do they not appear to be free spirits without a care in the world?
How often do you see adults skipping? Not often enough in my opinion. Kids of all ages skip.
I hope you enjoy this video on skipping. It certainly made me laugh!
Many times people are uncomfortable dancing and feel self-conscious. But skipping? Skipping is just a release for me. I find great joy in skipping.
Next time you need to take a stretch, try skipping. It only takes a moment, really it does. I found this website about the joys of skipping while researching (yes, researching) this post: iskip.com. I will be following their Tweets and becoming a fan as I already am a big fan of skipping.
When you are discouraged, try skipping. Difficult things seem possible after a good skip. Trying times seem more bearable after a good skip. The great thing about skipping is you burn calories, can actually get somewhere quicker and arrive with a smile! Get a group of your friends together and ENJOY!
When was the last time you skipped? Just do it. You'll feel better and you may even laugh a little. How great is that?
