This week’s Mental Sunshine is a really fun and simple one –

I want you to have a go at “dancing like nobody is watching”

When was the last time you danced?

I don’t mean the awkward side-to-side shuffle made famous by Rick Astley!

I mean really turn the music up loud, and have a good old dance!

The kind of dance where your kids are embarrassed, or the dog gives you a really funny look!

You don’t need to be a “good” dancer, or even to have a sense of rhythm.

And you don’t need to dance in front of anyone else –

You can have a kitchen disco while you’re cooking the dinner this evening!

Dancing is a great way to get your body moving and to release some happy hormones too.

Find yourself a happy tune, turn it up loud, and get down to the very serious business of having fun!

Here are some song suggestions to get you started:

Can’t Stop The Feeling Justin Timberlake
Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepson
Shout – Lulu
I Wanna Dance With Somebody – Whitney Houston
YMCA – The Village People

What’s your favourite song to dance to?
