Day 3 – And You Can Dance

Day 3 – And You Can Dance

I’ve got Madonna on the brain “And you can dance. For inspiration. Come on. I’m waiting.”

Sometimes the fastest way to get back into the groove is to get up and move your body. I’m not talking about going for a leisurely walk, I mean really moving your body until you break a sweat.

 

Today, we’re going to get up and get those endorphins flowing.

 

Choose a physical activity of your choice. Run, take a hot yoga class, go to the gym, pop in an exercise DVD or blast music and just dance. Aim for a minimum of 15 minutes but if you can go longer even better.

 

I know from personal experience that doing this will help. I also know that when you’re feeling down exercising is one of the last things you want to do. You’d rather sit in comfy clothes curled up in a blanket on the sofa.

Remember our goal is to break free from your rut so we’ve got to change up that routine. Dance like no one is watching. Run like the wind or twist your body into a pretzel. Do whatever floats your boat but do something.

    I love that your post mentions all kinds of movement. I’m so tired of reading things that suggest you’re repressed and defective if you don’t dance. There is no other activity besides dancing that people will try to force you to do after you insist you don’t enjoy it. (I mean that literally – it’s common for people to be pulled onto the dance floor.) A person can get to a certain age and decide they just don’t like, say, bowling without people suggesting they try to work through their issues until they can bowl with complete joy and abandon. I’m fascinated by dancing and believe to some extent it’s natural for humans to move their bodies to music. But I’ve also read fascinating articles on how the human body is anatomically designed to be a running machine… yet I don’t believe non-runners are suppressing an innate part of being human and are missing out if they decline to run. Thanks for the post – I do love the lyrics “You can dance – for inspiration.” It’s a reminder that we need to ground ourselves in our bodies in order to create,

    Dawn – so true. Your comment is so interesting to me and sparked something. I’ve recently discovered Qoya. It’s part yoga, part dance but it’s more about grounding into your body on a deeper level to release stuff, free yourself and just get back in tune with you. There are no actually movements like a dance routine. You move your body in a way that feels good to you. I’ve been thinking about getting certified in it because I think it would be so helpful to so many women.
