Hi. My name is Lori and I am a danceaholic.
But not all addictions are bad right?
Ok. Before I get in trouble with a wide range of mental health professionals, medical experts, scientists and the good people of AA, (really though, are more than three people I know reading this? haa!) don’t hate me because I speak nonsense.
I will state that many addictions are very, extremely, horribly bad. Dangerous, unhealthy…an illness, a major problem…
There. Done. I did it. I disclaimed. I am NOT promoting addiction.
Well… except for maybe when it comes to dancing.
Seriously though, even an actual addiction to exercise can be dangerous, BUT, exercise CAN be addictive!
There is a whole sciency process involved with chemicals or hormones or something that your body releases during or after exercise. It is released into your system and…I don’t want to get all scientific and technical…I couldn’t even if I tried anyway. I don’t really concern myself with the inner workings of my body. I prefer to focus on the outer activities if you don’t mind.
So, basically, you get high from exercise. It’s true. For real. Let’s say that it is your body’s way of thanking you for treating it so well. It is a reward and it is incentive. Once you get going you will want to feel the high again so you will keep coming back for more. Like all addictions it is a “the more you have, the more you want” kind of thing.
The more you dance, the more you want to dance. The more you dance, the more you exercise. The more exercise you get, the more fit you become. The more you can dance, the more fun you have, the more awesome you feel and the more happier you are!!!! (And it was fine that the old lady swallowed the fly…it’s protein. She would not have died.)
You see! It is a good addiction to have. Ladies and gentleman (all three of you) I have discovered the one addiction in the universe that we should all try to have!
The dancified addiction. Become a danceaholic.
C’mon…everybody’s doin it.
You know you want to…first class is free! (Haaaa!)
