Technically I am cheating by using this video because it is longer than 60 seconds; however, I find it both educational and necessary.

Imagine a world where everyone skipped instead of walked (preferably with boom boxes on their shoulders). I believe that this would result in a happier, skinnier world. Skipping is said to make you happy. It is carefree and youthful and, let’s face it, it’s pure fun. It is the perfect medicine to this stressful and angry world we live in. Think about how much happier your Monday’s would start if you skipped to class. I’m pretty sure it is impossible to skip and be angry. Furthermore, America is facing an obesity epidemic. This is partially a result of the laziness that plagues America; however, skipping could be the cure! Skipping has been proven to be a more strenuous activity than walking and because it’s fun people will want to do it. I have heard people complain about going to the gym but I have never heard of someone complaining about skipping. Let’s make the world happy and skinny one skip at a time!

    Hahah I love this Brooke. Every time we flip on the news channel we hear about how the world is coming to the end, murder, sickness, anger etc. Skipping could make everyone a little bit happier. I genuinely believe if the world weren’t as morbid as it currently is there would be far fewer problems in the world. As the wise Elle Woods once said “exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands…they just don’t.” Well perhaps this is an extreme example but I do believe that a little exercise and a little more joy in our lives can go a long way. Plus this could tackle some of the obesity issues in America

    Only you would find this Brooke haha, but actually this sounds like a really cool idea. I had no idea that there was a proper technique to skipping. Why not then? If skipping can solve all the issues you mentioned in your post then we got some skipping to catch up on.
