To Shake Off The Blues...Shake What Ya Momma Gave Ya - Go Good Guru

Shake What Ya Momma Gave Ya

Having a tough time with the transition into Fall? You’re not alone…

It has ALWAYS been a tough transition for me. I LOVE the sun and the warm weather. Maybe it’s become I’m a summer baby, (-:

When the Fall Funks hit the first thing I do is turn on some tunes and “Shake What My Mamma Gave Me”.

It’s fun, playful, and maybe a little embarrassing for those “less hardened”…but maaannnn does it lift your spirits.

MY CHALLENGE TO YOU...Try it.. Have a daily dance party!

Find 5-10 minutes every day to play your ALL-TIME favorite songs and GET YOUR GROOVE ON!

The sillier this sounds to you... the more you probably need to do it!

This will immediately help you relax, lighten your mood, and leave you feeling refreshed and totally recharged.

TRUE STORY: One of my favorite times to dance is in the kitchen when I’m cooking dinner or cleaning up. If the right song comes on I’m lost in my own world. More times than not I turn to find one of the kids watching me and shaking their heads.

UNLESS it’s a Kids Bop Song…Then it’s on...DANCE PARTY!!!”

An evening dance can really help you wind down from the day. It’s an easy way to do something good for yourself and it’s soooo much fun.

On days you’re not in the mood, just turn on the right music to make sure you can’t help yourself.

Dancing is GOOD for you – it boosts your mood, balance, coordination, and depending on how much you shake it, can be a mini workout.

…piece together some choreography and it can improve your memory and brain power 😉
