Today we are going to enter a time machine and go back to when we did this with joy and zeal. We are going to try and skip for 3 to 5 minutes. For the experts in the group who feel the joy and zeal you have my permission to skip until you are skipped out.

Challenges: At first it may be difficult to do because you probably havenít done this in some time, but donít give up, if at first you donít succeed then try and try again. Skipping is about a peep in your step and timing.

Skipping can help stimulate the lymphatic system, which consists of millions of tiny channels that parallel our network of blood vessels. The lymph channels transport fats and other substances around the body and helps with the elimination of waste products from cells. Unlike blood, which has the heart as a pump, the lymphatic system doesnít have a pump. It relies on exercise and deep breathing to keep it moving.

Skipping is the easiest way to target lymph flow (although any exercise will help). Itís inexpensive and can be done at home or at the gym. The mini-trampoline, or re-bounder, is another option. Five minutes every morning and night is sufficient for most people.
