Dance As If No One Is Watching


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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!

    Know what you mean! Yesterday had a day off, so shoved driveway (in a.m. AND p.m.), just assume most of the neighbors are at work, so had my iPod & grooved to all KINDS of songs & it was SOOOOO much fun! Done in no time! emoticon

    Getting exercise and doing it with something you like makes it even better---keep on dancing
SCOOTERLADY1216 2/6/2013 12:18:00 PM

    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

    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...

    Good way to start your day!
MOOKIE46 10/6/2010 10:20:00 AM

    Dancing also helps when you're feeling sad, sick, or lazy. It's just something that happens when your favorite song comes on... you just can't sit still!!
