Make sure you are alone. Trust me, you don't want the kiddies walking in on this one. Wear comfortable clothes, put on a song you love and hit the repeat button. It can be an anthem that's irresistible to sing along to, like "Respect" or "I Will Survive," or something slower that makes you feel all tingly because it reminds you of the first time you went to third base. One of my favorite songs to dance to is Melissa Etheridge's "Like the Way I Do." I start crawling around on my hands and knees like a cat in heat when I play it. Oddly, my second favorite is "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" by The Tokens. The key is that you pick something you can lose yourself in. Then just sing, dance and strip to the imaginary person in the chair. Yell. Do a few high kicks. Grab your naked love handles and shake them. Peel off your sweatshirt and swing it over your head. Make sure you feel silly. Laugh. Cry. Do it over and over. Do you notice how sexy and unstoppable you feel?
