My Take

Dancing is indeed a terrific way to relax and find physical calm. It’s a unique and fun approach compared to other relaxation techniques. And it comes with loads of mental benefits.

When you dance, you feel more connected to your body and emotions, which helps you release stress (typically, my main goal). In addition, dancing can increase the release of endorphins, contributing to relaxation and happiness. Plus, it’s an enjoyable way to get some physical exercise! 💪


  • Combines physical activity with self-expression
  • Can be tailored to individual preferences
  • Promotes a mind-body connection
  • Encourages the release of endorphins


  • May not be suitable for people with physical limitations
  • Could be challenging for those who feel self-conscious about dancing


Basically, dancing is a simplistic technique. What I have noticed:

  • Simplicity: It doesn’t require complex moves. In fact, the funnier and more embarrassing it feels, the better. 😅
  • Solitude: Practicing alone in a private space is actually an interesting thing I have never thought about before (I mean, to have dedicated dance sessions, say in your bathroom, for the purpose of calming down).
  • Next level: When researching this just for fun, I noticed that, actually, there are great online tutorials to learn new dance moves and styles. I haven’t really tried it out by myself – I am more into running. But you can easily push this further if this is your thing.
  • Music styles: It’s fun to experiment with different types of music to find what resonates with you or creates the most fun for such dedicated “move-your-body sessions”. In my case, punk-rock music 🛹🎸 but also energetic electronic beats 🎧 do a great job …
