Maybe C&C Music Factory had it right.
Dance for half an hour a day, without judgment from others, or judging others. Everyone’s doing it…Seems silly, I know. But dancing would solve a lot of problems in this world.Dancing is a form of self-expression. Movement is only limited by fear. But if everyone danced, everyone may feel goofy at first. But what happens when people feel goofy? They laugh. A smile can actually trick your brain into feeling happy. The upward motion of the corners of your mouth affects the facial muscles like the zygomatic major and signals stimuli to your brain that releases serotonin. So by goofing off, we would actually be convincing ourselves that we’re happy. And who couldn’t benefit from a little extra happiness?
Dancing also is an excellent form of exercise. And in the words of Elle Woods, “Exercise releases endorphins and endorphins make you happy. And happy people just don’t kill their husbands.” It would get people off their couches and burning calories, so dancing daily would do wonders to improve physical health and lower the risk of obesity and related diseases. Lastly, dancing improves confidence. When people are confident, they are more willing to share ideas and express opinions, but also just feel better about themselves. So indirectly, dancing presents the opportunity to improve engagement and bring abut new ideologies to improve the global environment as well as boosting self-esteem.
