We all have stress in our lives which, funny enough, is a good thing! Stress helps us take on new challenges and focus when it’s really important. However, as we all know, too much stress can take its toll on the mind and body.
If you find yourself tensing up at work, laying awake at night reliving the day’s events, snapping at friends and family and even just feeling sad sometimes, it’s likely you are handling more stress than you need!
Lucky for all of us, stress is not the only thing that impacts body and mind. Dancing also has a huge effect on our mental and physical selves. Scientists have revealed dancing truly brings happiness into our lives because it triggers all those feel-good endorphins.
Plus, contrary to what you might think, the perfect remedy for overwhelm and anxiety is to take on something new. It just has to be an activity that gets you moving, laughing, learning and has the ability to “take you away from it all.”
The best thing about dancing is that it puts you in control. When we are stressed out, it’s not unusual to feel as though we can’t get anything done. When it comes to dance lessons at Arthur Murray, you are in control of your progress. We move as fast as you want, learning new steps and dances along the way.
Plenty of dance students think of our studio as their home away from home -- a great getaway for mind and body. Join us for a free first lesson and see for yourself. You’ll meet new friends, learn something new and you’ll be feeling better in no time!
