Benefits of Rollerblading

Stress, lack of focus, and depression are all real problems in our society.

One way that I personally combat these is by rollerblading.

Rollerblading is really good for a few reasons.

First, the act of rollerblading forces your muscles to loosen. Did you know that emotions manifest physically? So when you experience stress, anger, frustration, or almost any other negative emotion, your body tenses. Rollerblading forces your body to loosen up, because if you don't loosen your shoulders, let your arms move, and lean forward, you're going to fall over.

Second, when you rollerblade, your arms swing around to help you stay balanced. They tend to cross over the centre of your body. This crossing the centre of your body actually is connecting the two sides of your brain, which helps you to focus and learn effectively.

Third, rollerblading is physical exercise. Physical exercise can help protect you from heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, and more. But it also does something else. When you exercise and work up a sweat, your adrenaline gets going. The result is a natural "high" where you just feel so good.

So yeah, rollerblading is awesome! I like to rollerblade before my classes start, and sometimes in between them as well, if I have four or so in a row (I go to a blended learning charter school, so I have most of my classes online and at home). It really helps me stay upbeat and efficient doing hard school days.

I really like that! I used to love rollerblading when I was younger but stopped doing it as I got older(mainly because my siblings and I fought over the one pair of rollerblades we have, lol). I also tend to manifest a lot of pain in my shoulders whenever I get stressed and often have a hard time functioning when I get those pain waves. I think I will dust off the old roller blades again because of this! Thank you!!

Rollerblading is definitely a great stress reducer! I used to work in a 20-acre greenhouse as a manager and I wore rollerblades all day long at work to help me cover the 20 acres more efficiently. It was not only a fun way to get around, but I also got exercise in the process and since my job was such high stress, it was a good way to work off some of the stress as well. :-)

That would have been cool. I only get to rollerblade outside ;-)
