Dancing for Your Brain

I read an article on a report that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine from the Bronx Aging Study. It showed that dancing reduces a person's chance of developing dementia by 76%! Let me say that again 76%!

The biggest barrier to dancing is one's own mindset. "I can't dance." "I have two left feet." "I look like a dork." get over yourself and just dance. No equipment necessary, other than a radio or other source of music. You can waltz or rhumba with a partner, or you can dance all by your lonesome.

If you want to increase the level of dance to also benefit your heart, there are forms of dance exercise such a Zumba, or something like this:
