Wake up and dance to 3 songs, every day, for 3 weeks.
We'll be celebrating women's day by dancing to top hits by female artists for the whole challenge.
Join the movement of people who choose happy as their morning mood: 3 feel-good songs in just 10 minutes to start your day with a sweat and a smile. Scientific research shows that dancing releases feel-good hormones like serotonin and dopamine, and reduces cortisol, the stress hormone.
We'll be celebrating women's day for 3 weeks by dancing to diva classics and female artist hits all the way up to Women's Day and beyond. All gender identities are welcome.
You can do the challenge in two ways:
In a virtual room, on zoom. Every weekday, 7.45 - 8am GMT. In past Wake Up and Dance challenges most people were dancing in pyjamas and bathrobes, with no make up and no filters. Some people showed up in their workout or work clothes and that's ok too. Just show up as you are and dance to feel good, not to look good. It's the opposite of an Instagram perfect workout.
Offline, in your own time. If zoom dancing isn't for you, you can still join by dancing offline, whenever suits you best. You'll receive a daily email with 3 songs to dance to. This is also how weekend dancing will work. Zoom is only for weekdays.
You can also mix it up with a bit of both.
where did this crazy idea come from?
It came from Claudia, the Founder of Nobody's Watching. One morning, 2 minutes after waking up, she accidentally pressed play on Spotify as she was walking to the kitchen. It was In da Club by 50 Cents. She started dancing. Spotify doesn't stop unless you make it, so she kept dancing. 3 songs later, she was sweating, smiling and in a great mood. Her mood stayed high all day. So she tried again the next day, and the day after. And it continued to work. After many failed attempts at finding the right morning routine, she finally found "the thing" that actually worked. After a successful first trial in November, the Wake Up & Dance Challenge kicks off again in January.
The improved mood results have been long-lasting for her.
How long will they last for you?
