Keeping your brain sharp doesn’t have to mean mastering tough crossword puzzles or slaving over a game of chess. Dancing has been shown to keep your brain healthy and young. According to Psychology Today, cutting a rug can increase oxygen to the brain and releases a protein that strengthens cells and neurons. The same kind of cerebral activity involved in learning is used in dancing, and the good news is, you don’t have to be of a Dancing with the Stars caliber to reap the benefits. Any type of physical dancing will do the trick!
