OCD? 3 Helpful Tips

Help Over Controlling Disorder: Breathe, Observe, Release

OCD Help
for Over Controlling Disorder

Do you have OCD? Not the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder but the other one…Over Controlling Disorder? Although funny, many of us really want to control as many factors of our lives as possible. And as life is quick to show us, the best laid plans, makes the universe laugh.

We all may know that holding on tight is not good for your psyche, your intestinal track, or your loved ones (who are often on the receiving end of our controlling behavior). How can we help ourselves improve this? Here’s three things we can start with that can greatly help.

1. Breathe – Take 3 very deep inhales with full exhales. This will help calm the mind for the next step.

2. Observe – Allow yourself at least 10 seconds of Mindful, non-judgmental observation, understanding that the outcome really will be fine, no matter what.

3. Release – Slowly uncurl your grasping brain from the end result, then let the positive wave of ease wash over you.

Trying these 3 helpful steps can help calm our expectations of our plans, versus the intervention and outcome from the universe.

May a new peace be with you. ~Che’ Rippinger

Three Great Tips From The Hoop

When you drop the hoop, act like you meant to do that! - Che Rippinger, Founder, Hip The Hoopla

If you think things are a little hard when learning something, whether it’s hula hooping, work, or general life, remember these three great tips from the hoop.

1.) “When you drop your hoop, act like you meant to do that!” It’s your reaction to what happens that determines the results around it. We all drop the hoop, a ball, a work project, whatever.

2.) In addition, it’s helpful to remember: “If you aren’t dropping your hoop, you aren’t trying anything new!”

3.) It takes practice and repetition to get it right. If you put in the work, it starts working!

The hoop is a metaphor for life that we can learn a lot from, if you get in tune and pay attention, you can adapt and apply those lessons to the rest of your life…really!  I hope you put into play immediately these three highly useful tips from my flow world of hooping, plus teaching many years of hula hooping, dance, happiness & wellness. May the hoop be with you!

Hoop Love, Ya’ll!

10 Fire Hooping Safety Tips & Tricks

Hip The Hoopla Fire Hooping Safety Tips by Che Rippinger
Fire Hooping Safety for Smart People

So you want to set your hula hoop on fire and dance? Here’s some tips that will help you do that safely so you–and others–can enjoy the experience. Bonus short video demo at end!

1. ALWAYS have at least one Fire Safety.

A “Fire Safety” is a person who is watching you carefully and has proper training to calmly help alert and assist you in any situation and avert potential danger. Your fire safety should have a duvatene towel, cotton towel or wet large natural cloth to put out your fire props, you, or any area that starts on fire (if your prop hits the grass outside–try stepping on it immediately to put it out).

2. Get trained with experienced fire spinners who know what they are doing.

Their advice and experience can safe you a huge learning curve and keep you happy and healthy, too!  They can also school you on different props, including pros and cons of different styles and companies. Do your own research too! The more you educate yourself in props, techniques and safety, the more well-prepared you will be for your “Virgin Burn” (first time fire spinning). **Get your fire props from a reputable source. They are NOT toys. Spend the money and get something good–or borrow from someone to try theirs out (with their permission and supervision).

3. Do not mix any mind-altering substances with fire.

Your judgement, timing and perception can turn something fun into something very bad-very quickly (including alcohol, legal or illegal drugs or even out of control emotional state–if you know you shouldn’t get behind the wheel of a car, then the same applies to working with fuel & flame).

4. Wear proper clothing.

Make sure your clothing is made of natural materials which have a lower burn rate (no synthetics–those can easily flame up AND melt TO your SKIN–bad burns & emergency room visits!) Also you want form fitting movable clothing (not super tight and nothing loose and flapping–like ribbons or dragging pant legs).

5. Keep your fueling area safe and away from anything that can ignite it.

It should be separate from the area you “burn”, “light up” or fire dance in. This means NO cigarettes, small children, drunk/stupid people, etc. Definitely start fire spinning OUTDOORS in an open, safe, clear area. Do NOT spin fire inside, unless you have experience AND FIRE INSURANCE. You can spin on private property without insurance. You need proper insurance and a permit to spin in public places. Many spin without, but you take on a lot of safety and financial risk to do that. Anyone who is a professional or performs/takes in money, should have these.

6. Use the proper fuel.

Just because you have a fuel–that burns, doesn’t mean it is a good idea to use it with your fire props. Some can have more toxic fumes, and other consequences that are not safe or pleasant. Most of the people I know, including myself prefer Coleman’s White Camping fuel. You can get it, reasonably priced, wherever you can get camping equipment or surplus supplies (like a military store).

7. Start small and try out a fire hoop (or fire prop) WITHOUT being lit up.

There is a different weight to get used to along with some different movements that you will find better to attempt before you try everything you know in hooping/flow spinning.

8. Protect your head and hands.

Some people wet their hair. Some wear a hat or scarf and tuck their hair up and in. I learned my lesson when my fire safety said, “Your hair is on fire,” during a parade. The tail end of my long braid caught and I got it out quickly before damage was done. Since then–I’m all for not having the nasty scent of burning hair. Also, do NOT use hairspray–unless you want to pull a “Buffy The Vampire” trick and ignite very easily! As for your hands, I like leather gloves. There are other gloves, sleeves and gauntlets you can use that are natural materials that are helpful or safe choices.

9. When you play with fire, you CAN get burned…it’s FIRE, after all!

Most of us fire spinners have an injury, burn or experience to tell you about where not everything went right. It happens. Fire is a risk. We do the best we can to minimize it with knowledge, practice, safety and experience. Make sure you check your fire props BEFORE you fuel up and light up-check that all is secure and in good condition/working order. Bad connections can come loose and start fires.

Also, make sure you squeeze out excess fuel (use rubber gloves) from your wicks, and/or “spin off” in a safe area (away from others) so that you do not fling flaming fuel at anyone or anything, once you are lit up.

 

10. Keep a first aid kit easily accessible.

Burn cream, clean dry bandages, Water, and cell phone. Prevention will help way more than not planning ahead to be safe. A bonus trick someone passed along to me was some essential oil (especially lavender oil), to help heal and is pleasant smelling for burned nose hairs! Really happy I know that one now!

Bonus: By being safe, you will have more fun!

Also know that…

*FYI: Fire is loud.

* Fire is awe-inspiring.

* Fire gets your adrenaline pumping.

Performers Bonus…Here’s an important fire tip for your fire spinning tricks:

Try to do faster moves in the beginning when your wicks are more fueled (waist, leg, chest hooping), and slower ones (isolations, floats, poses, etc) when your fuel is burning out and your flame is low. Fast moves will put out your fire out faster–slower moves will extend the life of your “burn”.

Here’s a video of the Colorado Fire Tribe Performing at the 9News Parade of Lights in Denver, Colorado. (Che’ Rippinger is the fire hooper with the black beret).

Torso Info

Keep Your Core/Torso Safe and Healthy

Keep Your Core/Torso Safe and Healthy

TUESDAY TORSO INFO

Did you know:

1. “The human spinal column is made up of 33 bones: 7 vertebrae in the cervical region, 12 in the thoracic region, 5 in the lumbar region, 5 in the sacral region and 4 in the coccygeal region.” (From disabledworld.com)
2. “Turning Torso” is a residential skyscraper in Malmö, Sweden and the tallest building in the Nordic countries.
3. Core hula hooping massages the spine, internal organs and a myriad of acupressure points.*
4. “Torso Tricks: is the Hip The Hoopla​ Tuesday 6:30pm class theme. www.HipTheHoopla.com to massage your terrific spot!

 

Your spine and torso influence all the body’s movements. When this is compromised by any kind of injury, motion can be extremely painful. By taking care of your body, you increase your longevity and mobility. Just ask anyone who doesn’t have use of their spine the importance of regular care and maintenance.

Easy steps to keep you actively mobile:

1. Stretching.

The expansion and contraction of stretching helps bring blood flow to the muscles and helps the nerves act and react. It also assists in preventing injury and improve flexibility and extension.
Note: start with smaller, gentle movements to get blood flowing, before attempting deeper stretches (which are excellent to do after your workout to cool down).

2. Deep Breathing.

Oxygenation of all the body’s cells is crucial for not only proper function, but survival. Deep breathing will help get nutrients in, and move toxins out. Plus it’s great de-stress technique. Getting in some deep breathing helps decrease your stress hormones, while easing up your adrenal functioning.

3. Hydration.

The body may function for a while without food, but deprive it of water and you get mild reactions to total shutdown. Drinking water throughout your day will help you keep up optimal functioning. And if you find yourself thirsty, that’s your body telling you that you are already dehydrated.  Tip: Try using one large water bottle and refilling a few times to remind you to keep your daily H2O intake up. Important: If you travel to high altitude or dry climates, increase your water intake significantly. Altitude sickness and foggy functioning can be mild to severe, depending on your body and acclimation.

4. Movement.

“Use it or lose it,” definitely applies to the body. When the body doesn’t move, it goes into atrophy. That means that tissues, muscles, shrink and can even break down and become inoperable. “A body in motion tends to stay in motion,” is a good way to be. Staying active will help supply blood to all your parts that need it.

5. Massage.

Massage can really move around lymph and help clear toxins from the body. There are a wide variety of styles to choose from: Swedish, deep tissue, Shiatsu, Thai and many others. Plus massage can be relaxing, soothing and release things you didn’t know you were even storing in your body. If you can get to a professional on a regular basis, that’s optimal. Though you can even learn techniques to do on yourself, which are also very useful. Massage after a workout, is especially helpful to prevent the lactic acid build up in your muscles, which creates pain.

6. Manipulation.

There are manipulation experts who study with years of training to move the spine and body safely and correctly. Licensed Chiropractors and Pilates professionals (originally created for injury recovery) are options to look into.
Your health care professionals should discuss with you options and treatments, if you are experiencing pain and mobility issues. Prevention and healthy maintenance is the key to staying at optimal functioning for as long as possible.

These tips, plus great nutrition, exercise and positive influences can take you farther than previous generations ever thought possible!

*Hula Hooping Trade Secret*:

Psst: There’s something that hula hoopers know that’s one of the greatest “workout” secrets. You get in all 6 of the above core-care techniques in one of the most FUN ways possible! Movement and stretching are inherent in hoop dance. Hydration when you sip water throughout your hooping practice, and deep breathing from your laughter and joy. Plus, you massage acupressure points all over the body and get in some gentle manipulation, too! That’s a huge easy check mark to put in the whole, “I really enjoy my workout,” column.

No matter what you choose to do, go do something!  It’s crucial to take care of your torso and entire body, for a great life.

Now go move with more grace, ease and joy.
♥ Blessings & Happy Health! ♥

Attitude Is EVERYTHING! 3 Tips to Pop Your Best Prop: YOU!

Hip The Hoopla - Che Rippinger

Oh Snap — Attitude Is Everything! (by Che’ Rippinger of Hip The Hoopla)

Ever see a boring drag queen? Heck no, Honey! Know why? Because “Attitude Is EVERYTHING!”

There’s something really awesome about dancing with flow props: we get to hide behind the moving distraction of an object. It can be mesmerizing. But even the best attention-capturing pretty moves are rather limp noodles of lifeless effort, unless you put your personality and individual stamp on it. How you ask?

3 Quick and Easy Tips

to Boost Your Awesome Attitude,

Increase Your Stage Presence, & De-Stress:

1. When you mess up, make it look like you MEANT to do that! This is one of my favorite “tricks.” Own it. The good news: If you drop the prop, the people watching may just realize how challenging this stuff is, and how much practice it takes to make something look easy and effortless. Ha! If they only knew!

2. Smiles make everything brighter and lighter. Understandably not every piece of music or dance requires a plastered on fake smile, but it sure beats squishing up your visage into what I call my husband’s guitar solo, “Constipation Face.” And I am not immune to this foible–I find myself having to make a conscious effort to stop my own “Muppet Face” (strangely wrapping my lips over my teeth with a concentrated knit brow look like a Jim Henson puppet). Luckily, I weened myself off of “Michael Jordan Face” quite a while back (that’s the one with the tongue hanging out in utter focused “in-the-zone” movement).

3. Have some “mess-up” recovery moves practiced. If you know some pick up tricks when you drop your hoop, or something unplanned happens, it really helps with those awkward, “Oh-Crap-Now-What” moments.

***Bonus Tip #4*** “Fake it, til you make it.” I remember the fear of dropping my hoop during a performance. Well it happened…in front of all of my peers while under the big lights. In my mind it was a slow-motion catastrophe that seemed to last for an eternally long minute. When I looked back at the video, it was a mere split second of real time. And somehow, I kept spinning and swooped my hoop up and got right back into the dance. It didn’t feel very smooth like that from the stage, but I faked it, and apparently, it worked! (See Video below.)

In another scenario, I was in a big variety show and was just as surprised as the rest of the audience, when a professional belly dance friend’s top came undone on stage. Without missing a beat, she gracefully grabbed her goodies before all popped out, and whisked herself off stage. Before we knew it, she danced back on stage and finished beautifully–with her quickly-fixed top, back in tact. After the last beat, she did a playful self boob-grab, hit a double “thumbs-up” sign, winked and curtsied. Now that’s how you do attitude right!

Circle The Drain…up, Up, UP!

PerspectiveIsEverythingHipTheHooplaCropped

 

Most people “circle the drain” with negative thoughts where one leads to another until you are in a downward spiral of funk. You can turn reverse it in the other direction. Many call it the law of attraction. Put your attention and focus on one positive thing, no matter how little, and then feel the joy. This will encourage the next positive thought, and so on, until you have stirred and magnetized with your focus, a better perspective and place of “action & happen.” Have fun being a vortex of good! “up, Up, UP!”

We highly encourage and practice a variety of positive techniques, tricks and tips with Hip The Hoopla. Come join us in a variety of formats: group classes, private sessions, premium packages and working together virtually. We’d love to help you step up to the best you can be in each moment.
