9) Music Will Improve Your Mood and Concentration
You’re probably not expecting me to say music will also get you in shape, says Raymond A. Smeets of Music and Health Research Group at Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, Netherlands. It will do so by improving your mood and concentration while boosting your energy level and decreasing your stress levels. It doesn’t have to be fast-paced; even slow or relaxing music can do it for you.
10) Dance Offers Another Way to Move
Studies have shown that dancing, especially when you’re out on the floor with other people, can burn an incredible number of calories per hour. Dance classes can be even more effective than regular workouts at raising your heart rate, and they may also boost your mood by releasing endorphins into your bloodstream. And as you dance, you’ll strengthen muscles all over your body. All of these benefits make it easy to see why dancing is one of our favorite kinds of workouts!
