We need to move our body… period. There is no need for me to try to explain this; we all know it but we just don’t do it. 😀

We live in a society that is telling us to do things all the time, like this: “Eat this and that, find a well paid job, go to the gym, get married, have children, be polite, go to school so you can find a job that makes you sick and crazy and yes, my favorite one, smile all day long… even if you feel like crap… and so on and so forth. Taking this into account it is pretty hard to trust what society says nowadays, but this thing is true, we have to move our body, not matter what; the difference is that we don’t have to go to the gym necessarily. Go to the gym if you enjoy it, if you like to train in the gym, if not just find another way to move your body: D
dancing_hipoIn my point of view the gym is truly useful, long term, only for those who love it, otherwise you will go to the gym 2 months and after that you will quit, saying that you don’t have time, or money, we all know the story, me included. It took me a wild to understand that you can truly move your body consistently, only if you love it. Some people like to run, others like to lift weights, others play tennis, others play football and the kids run all day long… you know why? Because we are movement itself. Life is movement. What does not move dies in the end. We cannot pretend to live and to be static at the same time… if you know what I mean.

So… you don’t have time, you don’t have money, you are not strong enough to lift weights or to run? Well… I have the perfect solution for you… JUST DANCE!!! It’s so damn easy. Just put your favorite music on, or turn the TV on the music channel and dance like there is no tomorrow. This type of exercise is the easiest one, it doesn’t cost anything, it doesn’t take too much time (you can dance when you wash dishes for example) and its fun and does wonders for your body, mind and spirit.

Imagine a Wednesday evening…you just came home from a hard day at work, you are tired, stressed out, your shoes were killing you, your house is a mess and you feel depressed…. well, get yourself comfortable in your favorite clothes or better yet, no clothes at all, turn on the music and start dancing. Do this for 30 minutes, at least 3 times a week and I bet you will feel incredible. You know why? That’s why:

  • You will get more flexibledancing queen
  • You will become a more positive person because of the release of endorphins
  • You will have more strength in your muscles
  • No surprise here, but it seems like dance will reduce your stress levels by decreasing the amount of cortisol released by your adrenals
  • It seems that dance will improve your memory, there is even solid research made on this aspect, just Google it
  • Your body’s balance will be improved
  • Your energy levels will be through the roof
  • Dancing will keep you young and will prevent you from getting old
  • Goodbye depression!
  • You lose weight when you dance
  • Dancing will keep your heart in shape
  • If you dance you will harden your immune system
  • Your soul will be free to express itself through movement
  • If you practice dance in a social environment, I guess it will improve your social life also
  • You will have more energy for you and for your loved ones

These are just some benefits of dancing, I am sure that we can find more; you don’t have to believe me, just try it out for a couple of weeks and tell me if I was wrong or not… anyways I already know the answer 😀 … I am not trying to influence you 😀

Oh yeah, I almost forgot! If you have kids you can ask them to join your happy dance, they will be thrilled. In this way you can be sure that you kid is moving his body and spends quality time with you, having fun together… and who knows, maybe a grandma or a grandpa can join 😀
