All the Times Emma Portner and Ellen Page Proved They're #CoupleGoals

Earlier this week, choreographic cool girl Emma Portner and actor/actually-very-good dancer Ellen Page warmed our (literally) icy hearts by announcing their marriage:


We couldn't be happier for the two creative powerhouses, who have demonstrated the true meaning of #CoupleGoals many times over:

1. When we realized that Page has just as much of a talent crush as we do.


2. When their first (adorable) collaboration included acoustic Britney Spears (because of course it did).


3. When we got to see Page dance for the first time—and she was amazing.


4. When the duo expanded their 90s acoustic cover series to include the Backstreet Boys.


5. When they celebrated the holidays in the most EP2 (yes, we've coined it) way.


6. When they made us ugly cry with their "You Don't Live Here Anymore" duet.


7. And finally, when they supported each other's work, over and over again.

5 Self-Soothing Exercises You Can Do to Calm Your Anxiety

"Through daily discipline, we are trained to move through space and are attracted to forward momentum. Simply put, dancers are far more comfortable when they have a sense of control over the movements and when life is 'in action.' "

To regain that sense of control, and soothe some of the anxiety most of us are feeling right now, it helps to do what we know best: Get back into our bodies. Certain movements and shapes can help ground us, calm our nervous system and bring us into the present.
