Finding Your Rhythm
Our current economic times have not only tightened our budgets they have added to our stress levels. The effects of sustained financial stress can impact our bottom lines as well as our health. Research has shown that over half of all workers have money problems and that financial stress is linked to health problems like depression, anxiety and loss of sleep. Although we may not be able to turn the economy around overnight, we can take steps to balance our own body and mind.
Physical exercise plays a major role in reducing stress levels by providing a positive outlet for negative emotions. Regular exercise can boast such benefits as lowering blood pressure and increasing stamina.
Today, one of the most quickly growing forms of exercise is dancing. Shows such as Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance have created a buzz that has prompted the average person to realize their secret dream of being the belle of the ball . Although the physical benefits of dancing are obvious, the social aspects of dancing can be equally beneficial. Meeting people with a common interest and the sense of accomplishment and confidence acquired when a new skill is learned can positively effect on ones state of mind. The more personally fulfilled we become, the better equipped we are to handle daily pressures.
