If you’re a medical or health care professional student, physician or health care professional, chances are good you work long hours, experience plenty of emotionally taxing situations and are pushed to your physical limit almost every day.
But even in the middle of the hardest days, taking a break for dance or movement exercises can work wonders. After all, in recent years, dance has become more than just good exercise. It’s also helpful in alleviating stress, anxiety and depression.
Dance also increases self-awareness and improves confidence and interpersonal skills, making you better at your job—and a calmer, happier person.
