Music is an extremely powerful form of expression. It combines both words and sound to deliver a message. Certain songs that one hears on the radio can trigger specific memories in one's mind. There is no doubt, there is a fervent connection between music and our feelings.
Exercise has long been touted as a way to maintain physical fitness and help prevent high blood pressure, diabetes and other diseases. A growing volume of research shows that exercise can also help improve symptoms of certain mental health conditions, including depression and anxiety. Exercise may also help prevent a relapse after treatment for depression or anxiety.
Research suggests that it may take at least 30 minutes of exercise a day for at least three to five days a week to significantly improve depression symptoms. But smaller amounts of activity — as little as 10 to 15 minutes at a time — can improve mood in the short term. Small bouts of exercise may be a great way to get started if it's initially too hard to do more.
So lets put the music together with the exercise and get up and dance.
Ok, your turn, what songs getting your feet moving?
I will start: The Sweet Escape by Gwen Stafani
Hey all you dancers out there.........what are you listening too?
Share, I need help here with tunes.
I, too am a terrible dancer but music really is such an important part in our lives as Kitt has said. I think for me it has to be:
Meatloaf - Bat out of Hell
Lets Get Physical - Olivia Newton John
Fame - Irene Cara
To all my terible dancers............no one can see you........so get up and move or at least tap your feet.
My Ipod is loaded with a little of everything....................
Heartache Tonight by the Eagles
