3 Ways Dancing Helps You be Healthy & Boost Your Immunity
Did you know that dancing is more than just a hobby? It can actually help your overall wellness by being beneficial to your health and mood.
Dancing is the perfect way to get healthy & fit while having a good time!
Relieve Stress & Benefits Overall Health With Dance
1. Physical Activity
If you're not a regular dancer, you know how tiring it can be when you actually go to a wedding or event and realize that it's actually a workout if you are doing it right! It's no secret dancing makes you sweat, but there are even more benefits to your health than getting your blood pumping.
2. Relieves Stress
Music has sort of a 'healing' vibe, especially when it is your type and when you let your body feel the vibes. There's something magical about letting go and enjoying some great music while letting your body follow the beat. You know what I'm talking about! Well this is actually relieving your stress without you even thinking about it.
Any good psychologist or doctor can tell you, stress wreaks havoc on your body - especially your immune system. Now, with COVID-19 lurking around our very neighborhoods, a weak immune system is the last thing you want to have right now. So next time you're feeling overwhelmed and anxious: put on your favorite song and let the beat flow through your body. That will help de-escalate all that mess in your head.
3. Improves mood
Similar to stress, your mood is very important to health because your brain is in charge of your body's operational procedures and if it's not happy then your body take the toll. Seriously, there's so many studies out there about how positivity, mindset and happiness have so much to do with how your body reacts to the threats it encounters.
Set yourself up to fight anything by making sure you're radiating good vibes at all times. Dancing will get you there. Luckily right now there's no one to impress at home, so let go and dance how you want to. Who cares how silly you look or if you don't even know what you are doing - dancing will get your mood on check for sure. This signals your body that everything is all right and that it should continue fighting that good fight for you.
Don't know where to start integrating dancing into your life?
It can be as simple as putting on some music you enjoy that inspires you to get moving. If you feel you don't have the time to do this, realize that it doesn't have to take up a huge chunk of your schedule, simply put some dancing music on while washing dishes, sweeping and mopping or even while working remotely (just not during those Zoom meetings or you may be judged lol).
If you love dancing and want to take it to the next level, try looking up your favorite dance music or style on YouTube for inspirational dance moves/routines.
