On the 9th day of Christmas My True Love sent to me…9 Ladies Dancing

Why dancing is STRICTLY good for the soul, and for weight loss?

Now that the party season is well under way, many of us will be dusting off those dancing shoes, polishing our glitter balls and applying the lip gloss. Let’s Dance!

Dancing has physical, social and mental benefits. Many studies that have been carried out over the years have confirmed this. Here are my Top 5 Reasons why we should all “Dance To The Music”-

  • Because I’m Happy - It reduces levels of cortisol (stress hormone)
  • I Feel Good - Dancing stimulates our endorphins and makes us feel good about ourselves, therefore improving self-esteem
  • I’ve Got The Power -It is known that after even a short dance session (10 minutes) your brain power can be boosted! (lowering your risk of dementia)
  • Burn Baby Burn - Dancing improves your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, circulation and blood pressure.
  • Everybody’s Free - Social bonding. We connect with our bodies and feel free. Music and dancing brings us together.

Strictly Come Dancing has definitely heightened our interest. It’s not just the fantastic costumes we tune in to see each weekend– it’s the weight loss ! But that’s hardly surprising when you hear that you can burn off 600 calories an hour doing the Quickstep! That’s some work out.

So make sure that you are “The Greatest Dancer” at your Christmas Party this year and you will reap the benefits of feeling happier and healthier. (Plus you can burn off the Christmas Turkey too!)
