1. DANCE IT OUT!
Sometimes you just need to get up and move! According to a study performed by the The Arts in Psychotherapy, dance movement therapy and movement improve mood, and can reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. In the same study, signs of cognitive sharpness had also been shown to be on the rise with those that chose to move their body creatively. Being able to release your worries and express your feelings stimulates your mind to release stressors and feel good!
In the same way dance and creative movement can improve your spirits and mood, so can your favorite song. Turn it loud or keep it quiet, sing at the top of your lungs or focus on the lyrics like a mantra, either way let the music move you!
Laughter has been known to decrease stress hormones within the body and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies. This means you’re improving your resistance to disease – no wonder they say laughter is the best medicine! Laughter also triggers the release of endorphins, which are the body's natural feel-good chemicals, and promotes an overall sense of well-being and temporary pain relief.
In line with meditative practices, mindful stretching and calming yoga flows are a great way to find pause mentally and release physically. We suggest a opening stretch like Happy Baby as well as Childs Pose for rest.

When you are fixed in a routine that gives you space to be productive as well as accountable, you are more likely to feel more grounded and less scattered. Your need to worry and stress is taken down a notch because you have a mindful flow to your day. Whether you are a morning person or a night owl, you need ways to exercise during the morning, mid day, or evening, or need a bedtime meditation, set up the movement of your life to benefit you!
