Jumping

Michael is 11-years-old today. To celebrate, we took a group of his friends to Sky Zone in Mississauga for a jumping birthday party. We had 16 trampolines all to ourselves and had an absolute blast jumping, bouncing, playing dodge ball, and laughing for a solid hour.

I don’t know what it is about jumping on a trampoline that makes me feel about 10-years-old. I laugh hysterically and feel almost overwhelming joy. And I always end up feeling that I am so fortunate to have such easy access to something that makes me feel young, alive and deliciously joyful.

And here’s the big-kid bonus…jumping is good for me!

The benefits of jumping on a trampoline;

  • Easy on the joints
  • Stimulates metabolism
  • Increases oxygen capacity
  • Improves balance
  • Increases oxygen circulation to tissues
  • Improves the circulation of the lymph through the lymph glands
  • Strengthens the heart
  • Increases energy and sense of vitality
  • Firms and tones the muscles

And…it is just SO MUCH FUN!!! So…if you are feeling a little blue as the cold and grey of November settles in, visit your local jump zone and bounce your way to feeling Radically wonderful!
