Hula dancing makes you happy

Queenlee and other happy hula dancers
Queenlee invited all of us to "Smile with your hips".  We sure did, including smiling all over our dials.

Eventful Woman and 12 others swung through several hula moves with the irrepressible Queenlee. It was an hour of fun, fitness and feeling fabulous. Rarely have I seen a group of women enjoy exercise so much.

Hot Hula is low impact and suitable for most ages and any body shape. Your abdominals will get a good work out and so will your well-being. 

To answer the question I posed last week: Does hula dancing make your sexy? Yes, I felt HOT at the end of the class (in more ways than one!) Anything that can make women feel good about themselves without needing bucket-loads of expensive 'beauty' products or fretting about shoes and handbags, has got to be great.

Bring a lava lava (sarong), a water bottle and $10 for your lesson with Queenlee on Sundays at high noon. Venue: the Piritahi Marae, Tahatai Road, Oneroa, Waiheke Island.

Leave your designer shoes at home and go barefoot.

Does hula dancing make you sexy?

As you know, Eve is fearless in the face of a challenge. This weekend she will rigorously test hula dancing to see if it makes her sexy. (Should that be MORE sexy?) Watch this space.

Falling is not the hard part

Taking a tumble off the unicycle
Nothing ventured, nothing gained. When you try something new you might stumble or take a tumble. Take it from me... that's not the hard part. I tried learning to ride a unicycle this week.  It was harder than I thought and the ground was very hard, too. However, the hardest part was getting the confidence to try again when I failed.

Whatever you are doing, if you fall or stumble get back in the saddle as soon as possible. You'll be surprised at what you can achieve if you keep trying. Click here to find out what happened once I had another go at that unicycle.

Try something new every week

They say a change is as good as a rest! So, try something different rather than the 'same old, same old' every week. Your mind and life will be energised if you regularly try something new. Nothing beats the feeling of knocking off a challenge, whether scary or just a break from your usual routine.

Learning to ride a unicycle might not be for everyone.  However, it doesn't matter what you try as long as you give it a go.  Even reading a book by a new author or driving a different way to work can jump-start your brain into viewing life and work with a fresh perspective.
