Tip of the month: Dance to let your inner child play! Dancing is a great way for you to live in the moment. It’s an excellent stress releaser from everything life throws at you. It can be a powerful way to reduce intense emotions and enhance our happiness. When we’re moving our bodies, we become more in touch with ourselves. Our soul becomes centered by fusing both body and mind. Dancing forces us to be present in the now and not think about what was happening and what may happen next.
Dancing offers a creative outlet for you to express your emotions in a safe place. Close your blinds, close your door, and turn up the music. You don’t need a routine; you don’t need to be coordinated. Just feel the music and move your body. Let your inner self shine. Let your spirit fly free. Express your anger, frustration, sadness, and of course, express your happiness through the beat of your movement.
The most important thing to remember… Dance like no one’s watching. Unless you’re a professional dancer, there’s no competition to win and no one to impress. You’re dancing to find release. You’re dancing as an expression of your soul. Focus on how it feels. Swing your hips, shuffle your feet, wave your arms around. And lastly, dance to let your inner child play.
