Next time your favorite song comes on the radio, turn up the volume and cut loose! Dancing enhances neuroplasticity – your brain’s ability to grow and reorganize neural pathways that keep thinking and memory sharp for years to come. In fact, research published in The New England Journal of Medicine found that frequent dancing is the best physical activity for safeguarding your mind: Not only is it fun, it also reduces the risk of dementia by 76%. That’s a better memory boost than doing daily crossword puzzles or regular reading!
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
