[Hooping.org columnist Abby Schwartz is hooping in the new year and invites you to join us.]
Don’t you just love the clean slate feeling of January 1st coming around again, when all of our New Year’s resolutions feel achievable? Every year at this time, I put the same items on my to-do list. Exercise regularly, take time to meditate, and achieve better balance in my life. The fact that I have to repeat them means that my methods may not be working, but this year I have Hooping.org’s New Year 30/30 Hooping Challenge to help with all three and keep me on track.
Those of us who have been fans of this site for several years are familiar with the 30/30 Challenge. Imitated by many, it all started here. The basic premise is this: make a public commitment to hooping at least 30 minutes a day, for 30 consecutive days in January. When you are finished each day post a comment about your daily hooping experience, however brief or detailed, on the post for the corresponding day on Hooping.org’s Facebook Page. Why? So we all have accountability to one another and can support each other along the way. A new challenge post will go up on Hooping.org’s Facebook Page each day around midnight PST and it all starts tomorrow on New Years Day so spread the word! And because January has 31 days those who celebrate a little too hard to join us on Tuesday can begin on January 2nd, and those of us who start on New Years Day, like me, will have one wild-card day of rest to use at our discretion if we need it.
