Top 5 Reasons Why Clubbing Is Not Only Great but Also Necessary

In a way, clubbing is an interesting social phenomenon that relatively accurately represents the current state of our society. Clubbing in the 20th century was in many ways completely different from what the 21st-century nightlife is all about. Unfortunately, when the latest pandemic erupted, the concept of clubbing was amongst the first to be hit.

Still, no plight lasts forever, and as soon as clubbing is safe once again, you should give this lifestyle serious consideration. Why? Well, here are the top 5 reasons why clubbing is not only great but also quite necessary.

 

Live Interactive Environment

The first major advantage of clubbing is the fact that it’s a live, interactive environment that helps maximize all your senses. The place will probably play the music you like (after all, it’s one of the first criteria when choosing a nightclub). There are people everywhere around dancing, which heightens your tactile senses. The light, the ambiance, and the vibrations come from all sides, further enhancing your euphoria.

According to some surveys, you need roughly 6 hours of social interaction every day. However, it’s not just the quantity but the quality that counts. You spend 8 hours every day with your colleagues at work but are these interactions really meaningful? An hour of clubbing can be far more impactful, especially for someone determined to tune it up to the fullest.

Technically, you could host a party at home, but it’s not really the same. First of all, you’ll have the neighbors complaining. Then, there’s the pressure of knowing that if there’s any mess, it will be you who has to clean it up. When looking at this from a club’s perspective, all you have to do is pay the entrance fee, have some fun, and then go home. This allows you to shift your priorities in your favor completely.

Fighting Stress

It allows you to relieve stress and simply vent some of the things that you’ve been pressed by over the course of your workweek. The best thing is that this type of stress relief provides you with a systemic solution to your problems. How? Well, first of all, it is a place where you can go every weekend. Second, the entry fee is not that big of an expense, and you really don’t need alcohol (or too much of it) to have fun.

When talking about music, the majority of people are aware of how different tunes can help you relax. However, nightclub music is seldom described as calm or relaxing. If anything, it’s fast, intense, and even aggressive in order to get you moving. According to some studies, these are the exact properties that can help you process anger far more efficiently.

Keep in mind that nightclubs aren’t the only venues providing this kind of nightlife experience. For instance, your local bars could have different regimens depending on the part of the day or part of the week. This way, by experiencing the duality of nature of these venues, you might have an easier time letting go and allowing your own wild side to emerge.

Physical Benefits of Dance

You would be surprised to learn that dancing can burn as much as 400 calories in an hour. Sure, it’s fewer calories than you would burn in an hour of running or doing some other exercises, but at the same time, it’s much more fun, which makes it easier to endure. High motivation also helps you be more consistent when it comes to dancing when compared to workouts.

Other than this, dancing can help you improve your posture, balance, and coordination. As a matter of fact, some dance moves are clearly meant to promote greater flexibility. On top of it all, you get to boost your circulation, tone your body, and develop some of your neglected muscle groups. All of this can be done with a much lower likelihood of an injury, which is already a huge plus.

Previously, we’ve mentioned the fact that dancing can be used to fight stress. Well, seeing as how stress is a psychological phenomenon that produces negative physiological effects, the correlation between the two is quite easy to make. Simply put, dancing on a regular basis can provide you with the holistic support your body desperately needs. It is definitely one of the ways you can be more active to boost your health.

Social Interactions

This is the third time we talk about mental benefits and stress relief, so it’s finally time to address the elephant in the room – what is it in clubbing that soothes your mind that much? While there are a lot of factors here, the biggest one is probably the mental benefits of social interactions through partying.

While you can make deep and meaningful social interactions outside of clubs (even more so), the fact that all of this happens in such a vivid and chill ambiance makes things so much better. You’re surrounded by people who are relaxed, people who are there to have fun, as well as people who share at least one mutual interest. It creates a kind of a social lubricant that would be pretty hard to find elsewhere.

Some people have met their future partners in the nightclub, others have formed a group of friends that they can go clubbing with in the future. Either way, it puts you in a new environment and expands your social circle. It allows you to meet new people without the pressures created by long silences, idle conversations, and awkward social situations. This can be quite a significant boost to your self-confidence in the long run.

The Reward for All of Your Hard Work

Previously, we talked about going to the club after a hard week at work. This is incredibly important from the standpoint of motivation. Even the slowest of Mondays can be endured when you know that the weekend is just around the corner. Now, if you can fully visualize what you are going to do on that particular weekend, things become even simpler.

Leading a strict routine and being disciplined is a lot easier when you have a scheduled cheat day. By indulging in hedonism on the weekends, you’re making it easier for yourself to be responsible during the workdays. For instance, by going to bed before 11 p.m. every workday, you’re “earning” the right to stay up all night on Saturday. By avoiding alcoholic beverages during your workdays, you’re earning an extra drink or two.

When it comes to staying motivated at work, the key thing is that you remember what you’re working for. Long-term goals are great, but they are usually so far away that they may seem quite abstract at times. A release in the form of a night of clubbing can be a great compromise.

In Conclusion

In the end, clubbing is definitely not everyone’s cup of tea. It is an intense experience that some people adore while others completely hate – there’s no middle ground. Still, not giving this lifestyle a chance means potentially missing out on something great. With all the benefits listed above, it really seems like you could gain quite a bit this way. The best part is that the list of benefits that we started above is still far from complete.
