This is my how-to Flail Blog
My doctor asked me a couple of years ago if I was exercising on a regular basis.
“Oh, a few times a day I’ll get down on the floor and flail around, or flail around to disco music in my living room,” I said.
The doctor and her nurse laughed and laughed. But I was in the thick of bloated, hormonal, peri-menopausal insanity. Flailing was all I could manage.
Guy, I’m glad I’m over all that. But I still flail. It’s one of midlife’s best tricks. Here’s all you need to know:
1. Flailing is an ever-changing choreography of moving your body around in a spontaneous and interesting-to-you manner.
2. The purpose of flailing is to trick yourself into maybe burning calories, building your strength, and feeling better.
3. Flailing is your personalized version of the Hokey-Pokey; Put your right brain in, put your fanny out, put your _________ in, and you shake flail it all about.
4. It will only work if you like your chosen method of flailing.
So, feel the inspiration as I deliver a brief explanation for the Beauties at The Art of Aging FB Page, and demonstrate a few flail techniques. Please feel free to share yours.
