Grab a Partner and Get Some Exercise

By Tom Herrin

There is no reason for people to have to feel like they have to bust a gut in order to get any kind of meaningful exercise.  There are plenty of options that don’t require heavy duty activity to improve conditioning. As a matter of fact, finding something a little higher interest can put more pleasure in a workout.  If it doesn’t feel like a workout, it is even better. Something that may be unknown to a lot of people is square dancing. The Red Oak area is not without clubs and groups that offer some pretty good opportunities for dancing.  It can be a good family activity for anyone of any age or ability.

It Can Be Good for Those with Health Needs

Anyone who is beginning a new activity should obviously check with a healthcare provider of some kind before starting if they have issues that may put them at risk.  For most, square dancing can provide some pretty steady exercise. Since they can pace themselves, it is possible to sit out when they need to, but square dancing is considered to be one that is relatively safe for those with conditions such as heart problems.

It Is a Great Way to Socialize

For those who square dance, social interaction is a natural.  People of all ages may participate, and it becomes a really wholesome activity.  Social relationships often build better health as people form bonds. It is a good way to improve mental and emotional health while getting a little exercise at the same time.  Personal relationships with family may improve as well. People who feel better about relationships will generally experience better feelings of self worth.

It Can Improve Mental Function

When you participate in square dancing, you will need to learn about the calls.  Responding to them can help to challenge the mind. You will not only be processing the instructions, but you must carry them out quickly.  This can help improve response time which may be beneficial in preventing injuries. Mental sharpness is always a good thing, and mental exercise is considered to be a good way to deter dementia.  Try square dancing, and you may find a little more motivation for your activity. You may also find that your whole family can get a little more involved together.
