Although many people may think that juggling is an old and useless activity simply meant to amuse people, the benefits of this age old activity may surprise you. Juggling helps you stand up straight and focus, so you are immediately concentrating on good posture and if you spend hours a day hunched over your computer, this activity will also provide for some circulation in your lower body. Juggling helps to improve your hand/eye coordination. Many athletes that play baseball have testified that a few of these lessons have improved their batting average. Learning how to juggle will help you to learn in other areas as well. Once you get good at this non competitive activity, it will give you the assurance that you can learn other things, such as a new language, different dance styles and possibly even martial arts. Juggling supplies are sold in various stores if you feel up to the challenge.
