Dancing is a great way to get in cardiovascular exercise. Regular cardio is a key to any successful weight management program. Dancing is a fun and easy way to work up a sweat and burn some calories. It is also a form of exercise that is easy to do at your own pace. If you are dancing at home, try staggering fast and slow songs as a form of interval training.

Finally, like all exercise, dancing is a fantastic way to naturally boost your overall mood. Just like when you go for a run, endorphins are released when you are dancing. These hormones trigger pleasure receptors in your brain, and can help to improve even the grumpiest of moods. In addition, dancing with a partner can further boost your mood. Human touch has been shown to help boost a bad mood. When combined, these two factors make it nearly impossible to leave a dance session in a bad mood.
