The Art of Teaching
This month we are sharing a list of Warm-up Songs for your inspiration. These songs set the tone for your class and should be chosen with consideration. Warm-up song components include an upbeat tempo with positive lyrics and energy that inspires people to move. Some of these song suggestions could also be used for medium to fast paced sequences. Enjoy!
Adore You by Harry Styles | Dancing in the Moonlight by Jubël| Where the Sun Shines by Bobby Bazini | Wairua by Maimoa | Summer in New York by Sofi Tukker | Water Flow by Klyne | Oui ou non by Angèle | Bofou Safou by Amadou & Mariam
Health & Wellness
Did you know that from sunshine to fluorescent lamps, the type of light1 we absorb through our eyes and skin influences how well we function in our daily lives2 ? Too much screentime, for example, negatively affects mood, productivity, and sleep3 — yet there are countermeasures: blue light blocking glasses, visual breaks from computers, and removing screens from evening routines.
More light-based tips for your well-being:
– Incandescent & warm-white light are better for eye health than fluorescent light4
– Using olive oil as part of a healthy diet is associated with lower risks of sun damage5
– Watching the sun rise & set has a positive effect on circadian rhythm, elevates moods, and supports immune & nervous systems6
