Ok, so by now we all know there are several emotional, psychological, and physical benefits to dancing, but sometimes we really need to get up the energy to do it.
Here are two tips:
1) Only, only, ONLY listen to music that you absolutely love. Don’t listen to music that you think you “should” dance to – meaning, when for example, you make yourself listen to Arabic Belly Dance music because you’re taking a Belly Dance class, or listening to Latin music because that’s what you’re used to, etc., or any other reason. Listen to the music that makes you come to life, the stuff that makes you so excited and overjoyed when you hear it played on the radio, the kind of music that makes you feel like you’re gonna burst out of your skin if you don’t dance to it soon!
2) Chair dance! Believe it or not, when we make ourselves sit in a chair when this good music is being played it makes us so antsy to finally get up and do it, antsier even than if we were to just start dancing normally from the beginning.
