Secrets of Success

Dance As If No One Is Watching




Each morning I plug into my iPod and dance in my backyard while the sun comes up. No one can see me since the yard is fenced, no one can hear me since it runs through my ear buds and I get a great workout dancing like I am a diva on stage - love it!

  • I love to dance as if no one is watching and it is great exercise. I'd be afraid I'd step in a pot hole or a doo doo pile if I did it before it got really light out though. LOL - by SCOOTERLADY1216

  • I turn up the music in the house while Im doing chores and cleaning and dance and sing as I go. Cleaning and dancing together is good excersize. Sometimes I do just dancing stuff with weights in my hands. The singing helps cardio because Im more out of breath. Id be too embarrased to do it outside. I did have a neighbor hear me singing once... - by JKAYASHFORD
