One of the top ways to relieve stress is through exercise, and ballroom dance is a proven form of comprehensive and relaxing activity. Now there’s even better news about the benefits of exercise: new findings prove that exercise cannot only relieve stress, but it can reverse the effects stress (http://health.usnews.com/health-news/diet-fitness/slideshows/7-mind-blowing-benefits-of-exercise/2).
Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area funnest, friendliest dance studio (http://www.dance-pizazz.com), is excited about these new findings and wants to share how ballroom dance can “turn the clock back” on stress. Ballroom dance can help:
1. Promote Chemical Balance: Dancing has been proven to reduce the levels of stress hormones. This also means that it stimulates the production of endorphins, which help the body relax and help in faster cellular regeneration. The more regular the exercise, the more endorphins are released to promote this regeneration, which slows down the effect of again and reverses the effects of stress on the body.
2. Deepen the Mind-Body Connection: Mental stress can manifest itself in physical symptoms. This can create a negative cycle that can have adverse effects on overall health. Ballroom dancing on a regular basis can bring about a deeper mind-body connection by reducing stress. Ballroom dancing as a continued form of exercise can also deepen the mind-body connection, a proven way to reverse stress’ effects.
3. Stick to it!: Ballroom dance is a stellar workout that is also fun. Those who perform exercise they enjoy --such as ballroom dancing-- are exponentially more likely to stick to it. Because exercising on a regular basis reduces stress and reverses aging, that’s one less thing to worry about. Lowered and reversed stress levels are ensured.
There’s one more reason to dance as a form of exercise, and the reduction of stress in itself is plenty of reason to celebrate. The reversing of those effects though is yet another bonus to doing something that is loved.
