Movement keeps our body healthy, but it also works the brain. And not all movement is created equal. A repetitive motion like jogging, for instance, isn’t as much as a brain boost as a circuit, where you might mix things up, alternating between side shuffles and jacks, sprints or step-ups. And one of the biggest brain boosts of all? Dancing.
That’s right. Learning new steps, where your body and mind have to establish different pathways to try and master the motion, work your brain much harder than simply putting one foot in front of the other. And constantly integrating new steps keeps the brain levels turned up.
So rock out by yourself or gather those in your household bubble. Need some inspiration?
