While playing the piano - as well as other musical instruments doesn't burn a significant amount of calories, the activity offers healthy benefits in other areas.
When we're doing things that we like to do, we have a sense of peace and contentment settle over us. This feeling can be as vital to our overall state of health as the foods that we insert into our daily eating plan.
This is just one reason why we strongly recommend balancing exercise with relaxation.
If you enjoy knitting - surfing on the web, watching television or going to the movies, doing the things that you enjoy may contribute to a longer life. A happy person, a positive person tends to live longer - and even if they don't, their overall quality of life is eons better than the cranky over-active fitness fanatic.
As a note, instruments that require more physical input can burn more energy - and they can do such while strengthening areas of the body. For example, any wind instrument such as the tuba or French horn can strengthen the lungs.
If you don't have the money to invest in a musical instrument - try looking at the tin whistles. They are very inexpensive - generally way below ten bucks, and this little tool can assist in strengthening your lungpower which in turn, strengthens the ticker.
