Use These 5 Dance Videos to Inspire Your Happiness and Next Give

Looking for some ways to inspire your happiness and your daily giving habit? Sometimes we just need a little something to pick up our mood and shake out the cobwebs. We can reach for caffeine or a sugary snack – or even a healthy snack like fruit – to give our body a boost when we are feeling tired or lethargic. But another healthy way to bring up our mood and get the blood flowing is to dance. This routine will also get your ready to start giving!

Dance For Health And Inspire Your Happiness

Any exercise can raise your spirits by raising the endorphins or “feel good chemicals” in your body.  This can lighten your mood and reduce the risk of depression. Dance has an outstanding positive effect on both physical and psychological well-being. Dance can effectively promote good health by improving cardiovascular fitness, strengthening the muscles, increasing circulation, decreasing blood pressure, lowering the risk of coronary heart disease, reducing stress, and many other positive benefits. And best of all, it’s almost impossible to dance to a favorite song without putting a smile on your face. Asking your friends or family to join you will just spread the happy feeling even further.

Dancing to Inspire Your Happiness and Giving Everyday

Dancing feels good. It makes you happy. And happy people want to share the happiness. This is a good way to motivate your family to give or just put you in a giving mood. Once the endorphins are flowing, sit down with your family and brainstorm your next act of giving.

Remember – whenever you feel tired or unmotivated – get up and dance. Put on your headphones, turn up the music station on the TV or just grab a family member and make your own music. There are so many ways to inspire each other and create a giving community. Check out 365give to get your happiness groove on by giving every day! It works!
