Do You Have Dancing on the Brain? You Should!
For more than a year, researchers followed two groups of active seniors to find out what type of exercise is the most healthy for their brains. The groups took up dancing and brisk walking. The study’s finding? Those who engaged in regular dance lessons enjoyed tremendous brain benefits. Their balance improved, too!
Researchers said the reason for the brain boost in healthy seniors is that dancing engages the brain and the body’s muscles and bones. Learning new steps increases hippocampal activity. Further, dancing requires the body to coordinate with the brain to get the job done. Heavy lifting done by the brain when it comes to learning and memory strengthens a person -- mind, body and soul.
