Find a video online of a dance you love but don’t know how to do. Dance along with that video with the intention of dancing it wrong. See what it feels like to let loose and do it totally off kilter – but on in your own way!
Don’t know what video to choose? Pick a random one on YouTube. And there’s always my favorite - the final scene of Flashdance.
As you dance, make it all about messing it up and seeing how totally far from “right” you can actually be. Discover how you can make two left feet the most fun thing ever.
Taking that first step is challenging because it’s a pattern interruption. That first step is about you choosing something outside your usual. Taking that first step can also bring you release and joy, especially if you’ve been comfortable feeling stuck or being busy.
