Could Dance Be a Weapon All Over Again?

"But soon I started to obsess about the radical dance movement of the 1930s. Back then, protests and social justice were part of the fabric of modern dance as it met the moment of the Great Depression and the rise of authoritarianism. “The Dance Is a Weapon.” That was the title of the first recital of the New Dance Group, a socially minded collective formed in 1932."

How We Use Our Bodies to Navigate a Pandemic

Want To Feel Happier Today? Try Talking To A Stranger

I see this everyday, on the streets, in an elevator, at a restaurant.. not only are people missing an opportunity to connect with another human and witnessing the beauty of their surroundings. they are missing fully experiencing their bodies.

"Many of us tend to do just about anything to avoid conversation or even eye contact with strangers. And smartphones make it easier than ever to do that. A recent study found that phones can keep us from even exchanging brief smiles with people we meet in public places. But a body of research has shown that we might just be short-changing our own happiness by ignoring opportunities to connect with the people around us."

Born to Walk Barefoot

"What these findings suggest, in aggregate, is that what we wear on our feet shapes the way that we walk, and that nature would make a fine footwear"

"So, the message of the study would seem to be that people who have concerns about their balance or their knees but not their pedicures might consider sometimes walking barefoot"

The forgotten art of squatting is a revelation for bodies ruined by sitting

Squat in between sitting and standing during your day. Change positions - MOVE, don't save it all for the gym or "exercise" - Try adding this to your daily life.

"This is plainly true. In much of the developed world, resting is synonymous with sitting. We sit in desk chairs, eat from dining chairs, commute seated in cars or on trains, and then come home to watch Netflix from comfy couches. With brief respites for walking from one chair to another, or short intervals for frenzied exercise, we spend our days mostly sitting. This devotion to placing our backsides in chairs makes us an outlier, both globally and historically. In the past half century, epidemiologists have been forced to shift how they study movement patterns. In modern times, the sheer amount of sitting we do is a separate problem from the amount of exercise we get."
