If you’ve ever seen a hula hooping video go viral on Facebook, it might remind you of back when you were 10 years old and could hula hoop forever, and then you wonder, “Well why can’t I hula hoop anymore?”
And then you feel really old.
Because you mistakenly assume that you either have to be a 10 year old kid or in extremely good physical shape to learn how to hula hoop.
Honestly, I’ve heard it all. All the reasons why people think they can’t hula hoop.
- You could never do it as a kid.
- Or if you could, you haven’t done it since you were a kid.
- You’re too old,
- Or too fat,
- Or you have a bad back.
- You have no rhythm.
- You could just never get the hang of it.
- You don’t have the hips for it.
The truth is, none of these are valid reasons for not hula hooping.
I’m 35. I never could hoop in my life until I was almost 30 years old.
