New year, new you! Now it’s time to get serious and set some goals for 2018. Unfortunately, staying committed is another story. We all know it’s easier said than done when it comes to our New Year’s Resolutions.

Life is already crammed, but to add even more stress to our daily lives we try to keep up with our resolutions that usually last a month or two before our schedules become even more packed than the year before.

According to Reader’s Digest, here are some of the most common New Year’s resolutions:

  • Get in shape
  • Eat healthy
  • Reduce stress
  • Learn something new
  • Enjoy life to the fullest
  • Spend more time with friends and family

Sounds like more things to add to your already busy to-do list. Now adding dancing to the schedule sounds even crazier, but think, it could help you achieve all of your goals with one solution.

Being effective and efficient is the name of the game nowadays and this is how we’re going to help you make 2018 the best!

Getting in shape is hard, but then maintaining it is even harder — we get it! But dancing makes it feel less like work and more like fun, so achieving your goals will be easier than ever! Once you start dancing, you’ll realize how much your body will need good nutrients to nourish your body (read our past blog post about DanceEdge owner and teacher, Jeff Goltiao’s guide to nutrition for dancing). So stick to dance and you’ll be well on your way to achieving those first two goals on your list!

Dancing is a skill — something learned and practiced, but never perfected. It’s a non-stop learning adventure, but it’s also incredibly rewarding. You gain so much more than just the technique and footwork, you become more confident and you elevate your body awareness and posture, along with so much more!

Whether you take lessons with a friend, spouse or just yourself, you have the opportunity to meet and socialize with new people, along with building or rekindling old relationships! Dancing allows you to take what you learn in the studio and show off your skills whether that is during a night out on the town, during a competition or just dancing in your kitchen!

When we start living life to the fullest, our stress starts to reduce and experiences become more vibrant. Take the first step towards a new adventure and learn to dance! The ordinary moments start to become extraordinary, and that’s when you start accomplishing your goals. Dance allows you to express yourself in ways you probably didn’t know — so here’s to learning more about yourself, taking risks and honoring your efforts and achievements!

So say hello to the start of 2018 and take the first step toward accomplishing ALL of your goals with ballroom dancing!
