Dance Break

Perhaps you have heard about the college student who goes around with his boom box and just starts dancing.  He does it because it makes him feel good, is good exercise and the people who join him get the same positive results.  And although this is his random experiment,  all the benefits of dancing have been scientifically proven.

Dancing releases those wonderful endorphins that make us feel good, burns calories and is great exercise.   After a busy day a little dancing is good for what ails ya!

But what if we can’t go out dancing after work?  How about dancing wherever you are?

Cooking?  Put on some music and shake your booty.  Cleaning up?  Do the same.  Step into the living room, put on a little music and get the whole family on their feet dancing.   All alone – even better.  Crank up those tunes and let your hair fly.

And if you are really into this idea, take a 5 or 10 minute dance break rather than a coffee break at the office.  Move your feet, clap your hands and let those hips roll.  There isn’t a cubicle in the world that can’t be improved by a little dancing.

This certainly is a quick, easy way to get in that exercise you miss during busy weeks.

I would love hear from those of you who do this and dance wherever you may be.  The world could use a little toe tapping these days and a lot more happy feet.
