365 Things to Smile About Day 156. Dance it Out!

Today I had an exciting phone call from a place I had turned a resume in to for a job.  There was no interview or offer or anything like that but they showed interest pretty quick and that was what was exciting!  In fact, when she heard I still had to do my internship she mentioned they do internships there too and that I should mention them to my supervisor.  That was kinda cool!  She obviously liked something about my resume!

Because of that call I started thinking about living expenses in different places.  I have done that before but never sat down and completely broke down the numbers.  This particular place was in Florida so I did the numbers for my repeating bills (and the painful student loans!) and then started looking at housing.  I finally came up with a minimum I need to make to just live from pay check to pay check with no savings...and I just realized I forgot to add health insurance to the equation!  Hmm.  Anyway, I was starting to feel my anxiety kick in and that is something I have felt too much in the past month and I was just completely done!

I had the Golden Globes on in the back ground while I was thinking about this and texting a friend and a song came on (I think in a commercial) as I was walking to the kitchen and I started to dance a little to it.  In a few seconds I literally felt a small rush of excitement and decided to turn on Pandora. The first song that came on had me dancing all over my family room and suddenly my anxiety was gone!  I just felt happy and energized!  Not a combo of feelings I have been feeling very often lately! So I think I have found a little help for anxiety...just dance it out!  Turn up a beat and let loose!  Let it all go and just enjoy the music and freedom and dancing around the room!!!  It sounds silly but it kicks those endorphins into gear and anxiety and stress disappear!

I'm not saying this is a permanent solution.  But it can help you to pull out of a sad and anxious mood for a few minutes and once you let go of the problem you can realize there is only so much you can do for now and you have done all that.  So just keep doing what you are doing.  And if you look into the future and it isn't making sense and getting scary...dance it out!!  :)
