With that little piece of advice, I give you today’s Mindfulness Exercise:

Happiness Dancing Exercise

Physical movement is just as important to our mental health as it is to our physical health. It is one of the primary ways we express ourselves and yet, if we aren’t dancers or we don’t have a lot of physical activity in our day-to-day jobs, we often tend to ignore how crucial it can be. So, for today’s Happiness Exercise, I want you to dance like no one is watching! Put on music or just move to the music in your mind. Dance in a way that makes you feel… in a way that expresses how you’re feeling in that moment. No movement is right or wrong, so don’t worry about messing up. Allow yourself to just enjoy the freedom that dancing provides.

Mindfulness Journaling Prompt: Now that you’ve completed the Happiness Exercise, write down how it made you feel. What emotions were you feeling when you started? How did you feel when you were done? Did you dance longer than you expected? Did your mood change throughout the process? Etc.

Mindfulness journaling can be very private. However, if you are willing to share your thoughts with me and my readers, I would love to invite you to comment below and let me know how this exercise affected you and what you learned about yourself through the Happiness dancing exercise.
