Art of dance in the form of exercise
Exercise is important for each one of us to stay fit. Dance particularly is one of such kinds that helps us to stay fit and healthy because it engages the entire body as well as the mind. Well, how does it benefit our health? Dancing provides you with both aerobic and anaerobic fitness. In dance you achieve aerobic exercise by moving, jumping, and twirling. The anaerobic type of exercise comes when you hold positions like squatting and balancing. This increase in heart rate helps to strengthen your heart and keep the muscle condition. Dancing stretches your body in such a way that other forms of exercise don’t. If the body is flexible it reduces the probability of injury in a fall or sprain. A half-hour of dancing can burn between 200 and 400 calories! Dancing helps prevent bone problems like osteoporosis by allowing more calcium to be absorbed into the body’s bones. Dancing can help with symptoms of depression and anxiety by releasing certain chemicals in your brain. One can dance to music and listening to music can reduce anxiety, blood pressure, and pain as well as improve sleep quality, mood, mental alertness, and memory. So now you have a clear idea of how dance can help you in your life both physically and mentally. Personally, for me, it has worked well to overcome challenges in my life. Hope it helps you as well to stay fit and healthy.
