5 Minute Dance Party!
March 3, 2015
It’s March, yay!! I am SO hoping this month brings warmer weather and much more sunshine! Of course, March also brings me two grad school classes; which, according to their syllabi involve quite a great deal of work- yikes! After putting all of my assignments in my calendar and finishing all of the “first of the month” tasks for work during my mid-day lunch break (oh and running home to check on Clara who- poor thing -has another ear infection), I was feeling a bit stressed and nervous! In my normal life I would never doubt my ability to pull late nights and work crazy hours to accomplish everything; but, in my pregnant life…..well that’s just a different story. However, instead of getting all worked up about what is to come in the next few months, I decided to stop everything I was doing and take a FIVE MINUTE DANCE BREAK! When my 5 minutes were up, I felt SO much better, distressed, powerful and ready to take on the world!
I adopted this method of dealing with stress from Grey’s Anatomy years ago, and have been using it ever since. Let me tell you, there is NOTHING that cannot be helped by a 5 minute dance party. Whether there is music or not, simply drop everything you are doing and dedicate 5 minutes to totally breaking it down; I PROMISE you will feel so much better and be able to handle/focus/process whatever it is!
So, next time you are feeling overwhelmed, bogged down, nervous, disappointed, mad, sad, or even super happy…. STOP and DANCE! 5 Minutes….you can thank me later!
