Lower Stress With Tango

Lower Stress With Tango
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
According to Cynthia Q Murcia, MSc, physchologist published in "Music and Medicine," Tango dancing lowers stress and makes dancers feel sexier and more relaxed and thus has a positive effect on their emotional state. The Tango requires intense focus to learn the footwork, and that focus interrupts negative thoughts that can bring anxiety and depression. The physical expressiveness of the Tango helps people release pent-up feelings so that they can start to deal with them. The high levels of communication required and the close embrace during the dance contribute to the highly positive feelings and good connection that a Tango couple feels. Have you danced a Tango lately?
