Jiggle, wiggle, fluff, fluff

When was the last time you allowed yourself to return to the days of being an unapologetic, squirmy child with adults asking you, “Do you have ants in your pants?”

When was the last time you skipped around the house, singing at the top of your lungs?

When was the last time you did a good hokey-pokey shake of your entire body?

As we mature, we become less squirmy and more self-conscious. Our inability to sit still for more than two seconds in a chair eventually becomes replaced with the ability to sit for hours around the boardroom table – some of which is productive sitting and some, not so much.

Random skipping accompanied by giggles, laughter and singing becomes replaced with scheduled trips to the gym lacking in the spontaneity of joyous physical and verbal out bursts.

Thank goodness for the spontaneity the polka band at the Friday night fish fry provides. That unencumbered chance to channel your younger self’s jiggles, wiggles and giggles as you fly out of your chair as the band plays the first notes of the chicken dance.

As you gather your thoughts for the week and all you want to accomplish, consider throwing in a little jiggle, wiggle, fluff, fluff to get your energy and your body moving. You might be surprised what a lively skip down the hall unleashes for you this week! A little jiggling, a little wiggling and a little fluffing of your arms might be all you need to see your work, to see your project, to see your dream through a new inspired lens.

Start squirming!
