You might hear the word TikTok and instantly get annoyed. You might even think this app is just for kids. However, you have it all wrong. Before downloading TikTok, my opinion about the app was not positive. I genuinely thought it was just another vine, blah blah blah. However, my opinion changed once I downloaded the app. I remember watching videos on the “For You” page and scrolling and laughing. There are some absolutely hilarious videos on this app. With that being said, there are so many benefits to laughing. “Laughing protects your heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems. Laughter burns calories.”  Overall laughing brings a sense of positivity in your life.

Another thing about this app is the dances. First let me state dancing is a form of exercise. So when trying to learn these dances that trend on TikTok, it can be a workout. I remember when I was trying to learn the “Renegade” dance, it took over one week of practicing for me to master the choreography. Overall it can be really enjoyable recording the popular dances and putting them on your profile. No matter if you think you’re bad or good at dancing, dancing overall is beneficial. “The benefits of dancing include improved condition of your heart and lungs, increased muscular strength, endurance, increased aerobic fitness, improved muscle tone and strength, better coordination, agility, and flexibility.”

Tiktok is for everyone, no matter the age. The day you start discriminating yourself from things because of your age is the day you miss out. Self promo plug, Tiktok – @kidrauhlciara_
