The pandemic has ended up making lives more stressful than it was earlier. Adding to this is the work-from-home routine that doesn’t let people indulge in social activities. It is crucial to make people come out of the stress bubble and resume their non-worrying attitude.
There are several medications available to relieve stress and depression, but, Dance is the simplest way to make yourself happy. It’s a sport that combines grace and strength to create moving art. Think of your childhood days when just hearing the word ‘dance period’ in between that boring class brought a stupid smile to your face. It’s hard not to be happy while grooving. It happens when you dip it low, pick it up slow, roll it around, poke it out and let your back go.
Dance is a form of expression that involves movement of the body following a rhythm, performed in different cultures. But have you ever thought about where did this art originate? As per Hindu Mythology, this art form came from Lord Brahma, who inspired Bharata Muni to write a Natya Shastra from which a codified practice of this moving art came.
Since the past times, Dance has always been a symbol of celebration that brings a lot of excitement. This kind of self-expression and recreation not only helps to restore mental peace but also helps in physical well-being.
There are several health benefits associated with dancing:
