The world has turned upside down (literally and metaphorically) in the last 2 months. And I hope you’re handling it with the confidence and faith for a positive future. I guess if you’re already a pole dancer, then you’re used to unknown and tough situations. So you’re already equipped with will, motivation and humor.
But if you’re in a state where the world as you knew it has totally collapsed, and you feel you need a change that will push you through to another (possibly more enjoyable) reality, then I have some good news for you.
The gateway to that reality is so close to you… It’s inside you.
In your depths, there’s the other side of you that you need to lure out. You have to turn your soul upside down. If your soul is at the moment ruled by fears, frustrations, anxiety and stress, then you must face them all and start reflecting trust, joy, gratitude, humor, will power…
And I just happen to know the perfect way to do it. By literally turning yourself upside down. On the pole! Because pole dance has been proven to be the best solution/sport for strengthening mental health (the positive side effects will also be physical ☺).
It’ll teach you how to be 100 % in the present moment
In our everyday life, our thoughts often wander here and there, we’re constantly thinking about this and that … the hamster in our head rarely stops (if ever). That’s why it’s so important to start an activity that completely grabs all our attention and doesn’t allow us to think about anything else. And pole dance does exactly that. It forces you to be in the present moment and not think about anything else except how you’re going to make the next element. In this crazy world, mindfulness is the key to building resilience and living the life you really want.
With pole dance, you’ll punch stress directly in its ‘face’
Pole dance is the most suitable tool to cope with everyday stress, anxiety and all kinds of pressure (we put on ourselves). You probably know that stress is part of your life. It was and it always will be. Period. What matters is how you cope with it. Do you normally allow negative self-talk and all those negative feelings overwhelm you? If your answer is yes, then you really need to give pole dance a try. The thrill you’re going to feel when climbing on the pole and then flipping upside down is going to increase serotonin and dopamine levels in your brain. You’ll see how good you’re going to feel after your pole dance session.
You won’t stress over those little imperfections anymore
Another important thing to mention is self-confidence. It sucks when you don’t feel good in your skin, right? But if you want to enjoy life and live it to the fullest, then you really need to cope with your body awareness. Nobody’s body is perfect and that’s perfectly fine. It’s all about accepting yourself just the way you are. And pole dance is going to help you big time coping with this issue. If you’re going to practice it regularly, you’ll see how your body is changing – you’ll become stronger, more flexible, your muscles will be toned … and your self-confidence will explode into the universe!
Don’t stress over cellulite or muffin tops … It’s so unimportant. Just put on some great pole dance apparel and spin yourself like nobody’s watching! Life’s too short to sweat the small stuff.
