A few months ago I started writing about dance as an inspiration to healing from an accident. Since then, I have shared a few Monday Moving & Grooving videos that make me want to dance, and I have slowly and carefully been returning to dance myself. It’s been a great way to get me moving, improving my range of motion, and keeping myself in a positive head space. I still have to be careful not to overdo it, and there is still no dipping (or pole dancing) for me. And yes, it can still put me into pain, but it has been so positive for my psyche, and while I recover, dealing with pain is part and parcel to that.
So up until now, I have just been sharing the dances of others, but today I am changing that, as Switzerland with its healing nature inspired me to do a bit of moving and grooving of my own (with the help of Erica and the Roamancing Red Boot Stomp).
This trip, #SwissRoamancing, really reminded me how healing and therapeutic both dance and travel can be, especially for the psyche. As a result, we are now calling the Roamancing Red Boot Stomp our Travel Happy Dance.
If you happen to have a Travel Happy Dance of your own, I’d love to see it, and if you share it online with the #TravelHappyDance hashtag, I will be sure to give it some social media love!
