Why continue to dance during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

Looking after your mental health during the coronavirus outbreak

CareToDance recognises and understands the feelings of anxiety, distress and concern many people may be experiencing as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and restrictions that followed.

More than ever before, constructive social interaction and maintaining lifestyle routines can be supportive for our mental health and overall well-being. Whether or not you are able to have face to face interactions with other people during this time, staying connected with others is very important.

This is where dancing comes into play by assisting you in maintaining a positive outlook and a healthy mind and body. Below we have highlighted some of the main benefits that dancing during the COVID-19 outbreak can have on your mental and physical health.

Have some fun

Dancing after all is all about having fun and connecting with your inner self. Dancing is a great way to take a break from all the bad news and negative media going around at the moment. Dancing will help you keep your mind active and distracted from negative thoughts. Did we mention already Dancing is fun?

Stay Connected

Attending dance classes, whether face to face or online, will ensure you stay connected with other like minded people during COVID-19. During these times it is a great idea to think of creative ways to stay connected with others, and what a better way than doing something you love. Dancing is the perfect platform to connect with and support others during these difficult times.

Have a positive outlook

The idea of going into a period of social distancing, self-isolation or quarantine may feel daunting or overwhelming to many. This can also contribute to feelings of helplessness and fear. Dancing will help you maintain a positive outlook and keep positive and constructive thoughts. Dancing will aid you in achieving this by proactively stimulating your mental and physical health.

Learn a new skill

Why not try and see this time as unique and different and not necessarily a bad one?. Changing your perspective can be a great way to improve your mood and overall well-being. So why not see these times as the perfect opportunity to get busy with learning a new skill?. This is your perfect chance to embark yourself on a new dancing journey.

Create a routine

On a recent article addressing Mental Health and wellbeing during COVID-19 published by Lifeline Australia, they recommended “creating a routine that prioritises things you enjoy and even things you have been meaning to do but haven’t had enough time”. Dancing is a great activity to add to this new routine as it will tick all the right boxes for you, helping you improve your mental health and stay positive.
