Who doesn’t need help getting it together? There’s a lot going on right now and worrying about the past or the future won’t change anything. In fact, it’ll just make you miss the good times right in front of you. Do yourself a favor and become mindful and focus on the now. Because mindfulness helps manage how you handle stress. Not only that, but it allows you to become more accepting of your feelings and the feelings of others. After all, paying more attention to what surrounds you will help you notice and embrace the new and exciting things that come your way.
Dictionary.com defines mindfulness as, “a technique in which one focuses one’s full attention only on the present, experiencing thoughts, feelings, and sensations but not judging them.“
It’s easier said than done. Here are some mindfulness blogs that will help.
Healthline.com is one website to visit when you’re looking for info on physical or mental health. The writing is clear and easy to understand.

Adding Mindfulness to Your Workout
Yogatherapy.health is the website for the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). This post, “Yoga Therapy and the ‘Secret Sauce’ of Mindfulness” suggests there are many benefits to adding mindfulness to your workout. For one, I can see it will be easier to stay focused if you do.
There are many websites and blogs available to help you find your way when it comes to reaching your point of power. However, the three blogs that are linked above are full of unique challenges. In addition, here’s a Dance Safari post with some thoughts I’d like to share, “Elevate Your Life – Raise Up, Lift Up, or Shut Up“.
💜 Is “‘Help'” ~ The Beatles, particularly the lyrics “All I NEED!!! is a Little “Help” from My Friends”, and Other Beatles Songs plus Other Pop Artistes like Pink Floyd Any Good for Ballroom Dancing or is there just Specific Music like, for example, Classic such as Tchaikovsky SupaSoulSis 🤔 ?
It’s my opinion that partner dancing will work with just about any pop music. Using your examples, the Beatles’ “Help” is a fine East Coast Swing, while “With a Little Help from My Friends” is more like a slow West Coast Swing. However, you would have to listen to lots of Pink Floyd before you’d find some music to ballroom dance to. Good stuff, but more for singing along with rather than partner dancing.
Thanks for asking!
