30-Second Cure for Anxiety

30-second cure for anxiety

It’s the end of the week, and your brain is fried. You and your teammates have been running at full tilt all week on a project that has you frazzled.

You’re all tired, stressed, and terribly overwhelmed.

So–what do you do?

Dance!

Yup—right in the office. Get those feet going!

Silly? Yes, but don’t knock it till you try it!

Years ago, a few colleagues and I were discussing Monty Python’s “Fish-Slapping Dance.” If you’ve never seen it, here goes:

A week after this discussion, we were immersed in a tense project with a tight deadline. I was on my 8th Advil when all of a sudden, one guy yells, “We need the Fish-Slapping Dance!”

We decided to go for it!

We looked ridiculous, but it felt great!

The body in motion is a fantastic way to relieve stress, and if you’re enjoying yourself and laughing, all the better!

So—get up, get moving, and get silly.

Trust me, you’ll thank (and fish slap) me for it!

And, a Happy Halloween to all!!!
