The negative physiological effects of bad posture are many: from gastrointestinal issues to overall muscles imbalances, it’s clear that hovering equals adverse health. These effects though are not just physical (http://www.prevention.com/health/healthy-living/how-bad-posture-affects-your-health-and-happiness), but can also carry through other areas of one’s life.
Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area’s funnest, friendliest dance studio (http://www.dance-pizazz.com), has seen its share of hoverers and has helped them dramatically improve their posture. In this second and last part of Dance Pizazz’s effort to help those with bad posture, the focus is on how not addressing this issue can affect one’s life. Not to despair: exercise, such as ballroom dance, can help.
1. Bad posture = bad body language. Some may say more with their bodies than with their words, but the message may be interpreted incorrectly when having improper posture. It’s been proven that people perceive and react more positively to those who conveyed confidence, intelligence, and a welcoming attitude. The main factor that relayed these and other positive messages was the communicator’s good posture.
2. Bad posture = depression and anxiety. Because bad posture diverts a considerable amount of energy to run vital organ systems, the efficacy to operate other areas is diminished. Moods are negatively affected, which can bring on anxious and depressed feelings. Ballroom dance can help fight these moods, not just through cardiovascular exercise, but also by promoting good posture (and bringing on a smile through dancing!).
3. Bad posture = diminished libido. It’s been proven that bodies with bad posture have a harder time running more sophisticated processes are deemed secondary. This means that the release of feel-good endorphins and other beneficial neurological activity is altered and addressed as secondary. Ballroom dance is excellent exercise that can help bring that zing back by addressing posture through movement and balance.
Dance Pizazz is aware of the many problems that bad posture can bring and knows that ballroom dance can serve as a one-stop-shop to help correct these issues. By promoting a healthy mind-body connection, the body’s posture and health can be improved exponentially.
