Dance Your A$$ Off!

Dance Your A$$ 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 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, rather than stay glued to my chair. 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, which is 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.

Dancing helps me to focus and find my flow. 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, turn on the music, 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 keeps my body toned and limber.  If you’ve got a few pounds to shed dancing is a great cardio workout, you can literally dance your ass off!

Many gyms and clubs now 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!

Dark Days? Just Add Color

Dark Days? Just Add Color

It has been proven that when we look good, we often feel better. That’s because it’s a lot easier to believe you are fabulous, when you look fabulous. If you want to start exploring new options for your life, why not start with your wardrobe? Experimenting with color and style is a safe way to try on a new you and gain new perspective for your life.

Adding colorful accessories like a purse, necklace, or pair of shoes can change your look, and your outlook on life. With every visible change you make to your wardrobe see yourself able to make changes in your life just as easily. Imagine that you can adorn yourself with qualities like, optimism, confidence and enthusiasm, while discarding all doubts and fears, like an old coat that no longer fits. Once you have refocused your mind on the positive you will feel empowered to make other improvements and changes in your life.

Unlike our clothing, our lives must be custom designed, if they are to fit well.

Adding color to your wardrobe can be an instant mood lifter, shifting both your perspective and how others view you. Red renews passion and says “I am sexy and alive” Yellow boosts confidence and says, “I am powerful and compassionate.” Orange, will restore your vitality while expressing, “I am creative and courageous.” Prisons and hospitals are painted light blue because the color has a calming effect and induces a state of peace. Every color in the spectrum emits an energy that affects us; the real reason women are so drawn to shades of pink, is that this color reflects our natural state of unconditional love.

The next time a dark mood threatens to take over your day, lighten up with some color.

  • Red lifts the spirits by stimulating passion and enthusiasm. It is a powerful color which stirs the inner fires, increasing intensity. When you wish to make a bold statement, red will help you to captivate your audience and claim attention.
  • Orange increases vitality while expressing uniqueness and creativity. When you wish to express your individuality, orange is a dynamic choice.
  • Yellow has a centering affect and reconnects us with our personal power and sense of self worth. Infuse your wardrobe with a bit of yellow when you need to make an important speech; it portrays confidence and encourages trust.
  • Green has an incredibly energizing affect on the body, this color will help you to relax and feel comfortable in any situation. Green is the color of life and love. Next time you are outdoors amidst the grass and trees, stop to enjoy the view, while taking three deep, slow breaths-you will feel instantly refreshed.
  • Blue emits a peaceful, yet strong vibration and aids us in clear communication. Just as the sky and sea are in constant movement, the energy of blue shades will help us move forward into the flow of life; wear during phases of expansion and growth.
  • Violet is the color of royalty and offers protection from lower level energies. It is often called the color of mystics. Add purple to your wardrobe when you wish to connect with your spiritual side.
  • White connects us with the Divine. It reflects a positive nature and exudes a sense of purity and innocence. Wearing white is great when you are making a fresh start; it reflects the energy of a clean slate and opens one to the realm of possibilities.
  • Pink is great when you want to feel like a girl again. This ultra-feminine color exudes a calming sense of unconditional love. Pink is uplifting and energizing. If you find red to be too intense, pink is a great alternative. Red stimulates physical attraction, while pink stimulates a love match.
