 I Just Wanna Dance

{Photo Credit: Telfer Music}

“Dance is an outlet for emotional expression, stress reduction and creativity that benefits youth during stressful situations by channeling their energy positively.” 

I know what you are thinking, “I’m not a good dancer, I have no rhythm!” Join the club. You don’t have to be great or even good at dancing to have fun. I love to have a dance party of one or thousands (if you include concerts) to relieve all that stress I built up on the daily. Sadly, I am the queen of bottling up my stress until I finally explode in tears. But, I have discovered that dancing to my favorite songs helps my mood and stress tremendously. Listening to music makes me smile and puts me in my happy place and dancing helps me let loose.

There are your study session jams and your dance session jams! They can be similar because I have slow steady beats I love to dance to or they can be totally different. Have fun with your playlist. Pick songs that make you feel good. Create a playlist that shows your personality like mine displays my favorite artists, genres, and eras.

As you can see, above, I love music a lot. My previous post was about the slower songs whereas this one is about those dancing and head banging beats. I have stuck with my wide variety of music because everyone has different taste and my tracklist is this all the time. I am up to 23 Spotify playlist, which you can explore when you go to the link above.

Music is the gateway to a good time and a way to relieve stress, go make an awesome track list and get dancing! This is just a suggestion playlist, a starting point if you don’t know what songs you want to put on yours. Sometimes, I struggle with finding those perfect songs. I have a variety of artists, genres, and eras to pick from and get you going on your personal tracklist. Don’t be afraid to venture outside your favorite genres, there are amazing songs out there just waiting for you to discover them.

In the words of Kenny Loggins, “Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose.”
