Dance Your Ass Off!

A dance a day can lift your spirits, transform your body and bring more joy into your life. Not only will you be happier if you have a dance a day (and I guarantee this!) but you will relieve tension, stress and anxiety as you shake your booty and move your hips.

If school children were given more freedom of movement -allowing them to stretch and wiggle about- I believe that we would see a rapid decline in the diagnosed cases of ADD and ADHD. Many of these kids aren't battling an illness or issue, they simply need to move. My own work improved greatly when I began playing music in the office and gave myself permission to dance about.

We all work best in different ways. Some of us need complete silence to find our zone and others thrive while multi-tasking, eventually though, we all need a break. Ideally, we all need time each day just to be, time to simply listen and reflect: a form of meditation.

When you think of meditation you probably imagine someone in the lotus position (legs crossed) with hands in prayer pose, either silent or chanting a mantra like Om. While this is one form of meditation, another is the strength building movements of Yoga. Anything that calms you and helps you to find your inner peace can be seen as a form of meditation. I have found dance to be one of the most effective forms of meditation for me. I center and ground while moving through any apparent blocks or stiff spots in my body. I am free when I dance. 

You are probably thinking that I must have great style and form? Now while I like to think I’ve got great moves, I am just a girl letting out some tension and getting into my groove! Dancing helps me to focus and find my rhythm. Whenever I feel stuck I can find a tune that will get me on my feet and out of my rut. Try it: next time you are spun for a loop, or stressed to the gills, get up and dance! I have found that on days that I dance I am happier, more relaxed and generally more productive. When I forget (and how easily we do) I start to feel jammed up, I am achy and tense; both in body and mind.

Dancing not only clears my mind, it has made my body begin to resemble that of a ballerina. If you dance regularly you can literally dance your ass off! Think of a dancer, their legs are toned with butt high in the air - if you can get over feeling silly you too can hope to look so good! 

Many gyms and clubs offer classes in various forms of dance. I choose to simply turn on the stereo and go. Like many of us, I dread the idea of a work out. While dancing can be strenuous the more I dance the more I need this time I see as play, and not work. Dancing has not only transformed my body, it can instantly shift my mood when I am down. The one proven remedy I have found to alleviate stress, tone muscles and increase joy is to get up and dance!
