So you want to have good times… maybe you want to become more active or lose a little weight this year. Then I shouldn’t have to tell you… DANCE! Dancing will get you active and you’ll be burning calories. This will help you lose weight and gain muscle and all that good stuff; though really… to make any real changes, you have to make a lifestyle change.
You know that saying “dance like no one is watching”? Well, there’s a reason why it’s so well-known and regarded, because dancing is a form of self-expression. It’s a wonderful way to release all that negative energy that’s built up in your system after a stressful work week without taking it out with a verbal lashing on the poor fool who thought it was a good idea to ask if you picked up milk at the store on your way home tonight.
So expel that rough week by getting up off the couch or chair and just put on some music that gets you moving. No one has ever received simpler advice. You should dance just to dance, because you feel moved to. Here’s a video of a little two year old girl dancing purely because it’s what she loves to do!
If that isn’t enough for you, consider enrolling in a weekly course at your local community center or dance school. An instructor can guide you as you free yourself with open body swaying and movements. You’ll probably feel more energized and excited about your life, overall, as a result too.
