“Dancing is just the opposite of lying in the bed in the middle of the night thinking about our problems. Mind can’t think of 2 things at same time, so if you give yourself to the dance, then you can’t think of the problems, because your mind is on the problems. Physiologically, your body releases endorphins that physically make you feel better- physical wellbeing transforms into mental wellbeing”
