How Cancer Shaped Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Life and Work

The name Ruth Bader Ginsburg became almost synonymous with strength and stamina as she rose to prominence in judicial and feminist circles throughout her long career. Famously nicknamed the Notorious RBG and known for her grueling fitness regimen, the late Supreme Court justice also struggled with cancer and other health issues for the better part of her time on the bench — culminating with her death on Sept. 18 at the age of 87 of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer.Ginsburg’s health issues became public in 1999, six years after her appointment to the Supreme Court, when she had surgery for early-stage colon cancer. Ten years later, she went through the same process for pancreatic cancer. And nearly a decade after that, the Supreme Court announced that Ginsburg had undergone surgery to have two cancerous growths removed from her left lung. She announced in July 2020 that she’d been treated earlier that year for cancerous lesions on her liver, but made clear her intentions…

Disney Dance Workouts Make Me Feel Like a Kid Again - Here Are 10 of My Favorites

When I was younger, exercise was never a chore, a self-imposed requirement, or done for any reason other than to have fun. I played on multiple sports teams, ran around with my friends at recess, and rode my bike through my neighborhood. But at some point between childhood and early adolescence, my mindset about exercise shifted.

Don't get me wrong - I love how I feel after a good workout, and my mental health is always improved when I exercise consistently. But I can't deny that my reasoning for working out isn't as pure as it was when I was a kid. It's often tied to my body image - even if I'm not trying to change how I look, I'm almost always trying to maintain consistency in my appearance. And if I'm being completely honest with myself, it's been too long since I went into a workout believing it would be fun and not simply something that I'd feel good about when it was over.

I decided I needed to change that. Besides taking longer walks and hikes (I've learned that's one of my favorite ways to clear my mind and move my body), I started dancing, specifically to Disney workouts. I'm not a great dancer, but that's not the point - it's just fun to do! Many of the moves are also rooted in specific exercises versus dance steps, so even someone with two left feet like me can figure it out! But more than anything, the Disney soundtracks help me let loose and center myself in the mindset of childhood, and I love singing along realizing I still know all the words the same way I did when I was 8 years old.

I put together a list of 10 of my favorite Disney dance workouts - and a few I still want to try! - so they'd all be in one convenient place. If you're looking to have fun, feel young, and get in a good sweat session, look no further than this list.
