All together now… The benefits of doing activity in a group

We all know that doing exercise, singing or dancing in a group environment can be much more fun than going it alone. However, it has also been proven that there are numerous physical and mental health benefits as well. So, if you’re looking for another excuse to get together with friends for some fun and fitness at danceSing, here it is…

It boosts motivation

Being surrounded by a group of like-minded individuals who are all there for the same reason, can be inspiring and keep you motivated. Whether you’re exercising, dancing or singing with friends, they will keep you going and push you to dig deeper to be the very best version of yourself. At danceSing, our leaders and members are all extremely supportive of one another and you will always feel welcome and supported throughout your danceSing journey.

 

It creates life-long friendships

Not only does exercising in a group provide great physical and mental health benefits, but it also keeps us social. Loneliness and isolation is a growing problem, especially in the older generation, but it shouldn’t be that way. Going along to a group activity that you enjoy, just once or twice a week, can make all the difference and can help you develop lifelong friendships with people who are often going through the same feelings. We encourage our members to meet up for coffee and socialise out with classes too, and we are thrilled to see so many amazing friendships forming through danceSing.

 

It adds accountability 

How often have you been close to cancelling last minute because you ‘just don’t feel like it’? It’s easy to do so when you’re going it alone, but when you’re attending with friends there is much more accountability! Nobody likes to let their friends down, so setting a goal to do one to two classes a week with a friend is much more likely to happen than if you’re going solo.

It reduces stress levels

Singing, dancing and doing fitness activity in a group can help to lower stress levels significantly. A number of studies have found that singing in a choir can improve oxytocin levels, the hormone which controls stress and anxiety. Many participants of choirs have also been found to leave the diagnostic category of depression after singing in a group for just a few months. Dancing in a group environment can also make you feel liberated, and relieved of any negative build up whilst significantly boosting endorphins (the feel-good hormone), leaving you feeling fantastic all round.

 

Singing, dancing and getting fit with friends really can have a positive impact on your life. If you’re feeling inspired, we’d love to welcome you along to a danceSing Taster Week. Find out more and find the perfect class for you here.
