When was the last time you just stood up in your office or your living room or your kitchen and started to dance because you just had to?
Well, today is the perfect day for it. Get out your Saturday morning dance shoes. Twist and shout and move around the room and have some fun.
Or when was the last time you dug out a pair of heels and went dancing at some honky tonk with that crazy-good band that sticks to the great dance covers? The band that plays Aretha, Stevie Wonder, and Coldplay. Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, and Earth, Wind & Fire. Grand Funk Railroad. The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. The kind of music that speaks directly to some intimate and rhythmic part of you that tells you that you just have to dance.
The kind of songs that you can’t help but sing along with. Someone told me once that if you succumb to peer pressure and find yourself up on the stage with a karaoke mic in your hand, pick Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline. It is guaranteed that you won’t be singing alone by the time you get to the chorus.
Wherever you are, turn on some music and dance. It is good for you in so many ways. Movement clears your chakras and inspires happiness. It limbers you up and gets you moving in ways that everyday life pretty much ignores. It instills grace and improves flexibility. It can also reduce stress. And it’s pretty difficult to be dancing to some awesome music and not smile. Maybe even impossible.
Life is a lively event, and it sure is quick. Do yourself a favor and do some dancing today. This mashup will definitely get you moving! These dancers have got some serious moves!
