It is time for one of my favorite and most used tiny tools.
The public bathroom dance.
Yes, the bathroom is one of the best places to cry in public. But it is also one of the best places to dance. At some point today, whether you are in your apartment or at a friend's place or at work or on a dinner date… Take a dance break in the bathroom. Watch yourself in the mirror – give yourself encouraging looks.
Choose the song you will dance to right now so you don't have a perfectionist moment in the bathroom and miss your opportunity. Here are my go-to songs:
I'm talking about bathrooms without stalls, in case that isn't clear. Starbucks bathrooms are always good, unless you live in New York City in which case you will be holding up the line. Also, if somebody knocks, you can stop your dancing short. It's not really fun to dance under pressure. But try again later! And notice how good even 20 seconds felt!
I'll post my bathroom dance on my Instagram story to normalize the experience for you. You are welcome to post yours.
okay, I'm going to go dance now,
