Want to know the best way to beat your aging body clock? Dance! A study just published in "Frontiers of Human Neuroscience Journal" found that dancing was even more effective than endurance training in slowing down the aging process of the brain.
See, it isn't just the physical activity and the balance, but the learning of different steps....the choreography of dancing that gives it the edge. It's all in the hippocamus, center of memory, balance and learning. The more steps and rhythms you learn, the livelier your brain. Have you ever watched an older couple who knew their way across the dance floor? Makes your brain livelier just to watch.
