Are you feeling stressed or unmotivated? Have you ever just woken up on the wrong side of the bed? What about dreading your day from the second you open your eyes?
Say no more! If you’re in need of a mood adjustment, try a dance workout! Yup I said it, just dance it out!
Have you ever seen people dancing around with a depressed or angry expression? … I’m just saying.
Dance may promote wellness by strengthening the immune system through muscular action and physiological processes. Dance engages the mind and the body. It is a full-body expression that causes the release of the very chemicals that are good for your brain: dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins. This explains why some people who work out gain what is often referred to as “Runner’s High”.
When you’re feeling stressed or unmotivated try streaming a cardio dance workout. It can help you shake off the challenges of the day or help you prepare for one. This is a much healthier alternative to cracking open that bottle of wine or tub of ice cream when you get home from a stressful day.
However, don’t over-think it! Even though your mind may be on overdrive, its best to avoid overthinking the moves — just focus on having fun and let loose. Dance like nobody’s watching! When you are having fun with it, time flies and you won’t even realize! it’s a workout that gets your heart will pumping, sweat pouring, and calories burning!
No matter what your jam is, you can find a dance workout that incorporates all your favorite styles — from hip-hop and salsa to Bollywood or belly dancing. You can even find group classes like Zumba or Jazzercise.
Instant mood changer! Let it all out on the dance floor and leave it there. You will be so glad you did.
