Oh I do hope you are taking me up on 'The Self-Expression Challenge". As I continue in this series which is promoting the idea that self-expression can be helpful for dealing with depression, I would like to chat about dancing and it therapeutic benefits.

I gave you a good list of different forms of self-expression. We have tackled prayer and coloring so far. Did anyone try prayer?

And how about coloring, how is that going? Now, I don't want you to quit coloring and start dancing instead, but I DO want you to start dancing.

Do you know that song "Dance Like No One's Watching"?  Wait, there is another song similar, click here. Anyways, the point is this, that we should DANCE LIKE NO ONE'S WATCHING!

Or like the little guy in this picture, dance whether anyone is watching or not. Look at the joy on his face! Of course he is young and carefree but still, maybe a little dancing might make us young and carefree again?

WHAT ABOUT YOU? So, my self-expression challenge for you today is to dance, for one minute! With or without music, it is up to you.

Tomorrow I will ask you how that felt, and then share some of the amazing therapeutic benefits of dance.

I am so glad you dropped by today!

Join me again at ‘Depression Getaway’ and together we will…

…live, care, laugh, share, learn, discover, forgive and recover.

Don’t give up, I’m praying for you!
