3 Ways To Bring Calm To Your Life
If you’ve had a frustrating day in the studio, unwinding with your friends may be just what you need. A 2011 study found that the presence of friends can help buffer the effects of negative experiences, and reduces the stress hormone cortisol.
A study from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine found that sleep deprivation caused the same negative effects on the immune system as stress does. A good night’s rest will help you curb stress and stay healthy for long days of dancing.
3. Be thankful:
A study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that participants who kept a record of what they were grateful for felt happier, had more energy and reported fewer health complaints. Try jotting down a couple positive notes each day—focusing on the good will help you keep things in perspective and appreciate the great summer you’re having.
