Stop Stressing, Start Dancing!
Try as you might, stress is just a part of life. If you manage it well, it can actually help you be productive at work and school. In fact, a little bit of anxiety keeps you on your toes; you won’t get lazy or complacent when you are wide-eyed about everything you do!
That being said, stress is not helpful when it’s getting in the way of your confidence, your ability to perform well at work, or keeping you awake every night. If you are feeling sad or like your self-esteem needs a kick in the butt, stress may be what’s holding you back.
If you are like most people, you may be thinking there is no way to calm the stress. You may feel out of control and unaware of how to help yourself get out of the rut.
We have a suggestion for what ails ya! It may sound crazy but there are many reasons to embrace ballroom dancing when you feel stressed out and worried. In fact, according to scientific studies, dancing can reduce stress in many ways.
Dancing is an endorphin booster! When you dance, you have fun. When you have fun, your body’s endorphins start revving up.
