Juggle a good workout

Juggling has many positive effects on the mind, body and spirit.

 

  • Visual perception and peripheral vision - Above all, peripheral vision, i.e. perceptions in the edge area of ​​the field of vision, are greatly improved. The juggler is sure to catch balls that he only marginally perceives. This improved ability is of great benefit in road traffic, for example.
  • Improved feel for the ball and accuracy of movement - The frequent repetitions when juggling give the body a precise feel for the ball. Small deviations from the flight path can be compensated.
    This knowledge can be transferred to other ball sports, so more and more professional teams are including juggling in their training program.
  • Improvement of fine motor skills and dexterity - Juggling promotes fine motor skills and dexterity, the smallest movement deviations are detected and corrected. When catching, errors are sensed and eliminated. This dexterity is an advantage in many other areas.
  • Promotion of the sense of rhythm - Juggling is a rhythmic affair, each pattern has its own rhythm to which the juggler adapts.
  • Responsiveness - the smallest deviations in the juggling pattern or when passing must be responded to quickly with adaptations. This trains the interaction between perception in the brain and coordinated movement reactions. This also benefits you in everyday life (traffic, falls, reacting to the unforeseen).
  • Improvement of the ability to concentrate - Juggling means concentrating ..., practicing until the number or the trick works.
  • Imagination of movement- The mental preoccupation with the juggling pattern promotes the imagination of movement to a high degree.
  • Training the "weak" side (hand) - unlike in many other sports, juggling constantly demands the "bad hand". Since both halves of the brain are involved in juggling, juggling also serves to practice psychophysical bilateralism.
  • Balance ability - e.g. (when juggling) on ​​the unicycle or rola-bola, the ability to balance is strongly trained, which is beneficial for many everyday activities.
  • Improved body awareness - The insight into the individual, versatile movement sequences creates a differentiated and direct body perception.

     

  • Promote creativity - Juggling is pure creativity ... the individual ability to express yourself with a trick, the creative design of juggling patterns or performances ...
  • Reduction of aggression and frustrations through many success experiences - when juggling you almost only have a sense of achievement. What you can do once you can no longer forget, and you make learning progress every day. There is no loser in juggling. Juggling has a "touch" of happiness and is a lot of fun.
  • Increased self-confidence and self-confidence - The awareness of being able to do something that not everyone can do gives you positive self-confidence. When performing in front of an audience, you gain self-confidence.
  • Psychic stability - Juggling imparts practical skills to a meaningful occupation and can thus help out of many a life crisis.
  • Promotion of willingness to cooperate and social behavior - In partner and group juggling, especially when passing, only a cooperative relationship is possible, you have to adjust to the other partner in order to achieve the goal together. You learn that accusations (e.g. "throw more precisely") do not advance the process.
  • Promote perseverance and patience you learn that with perseverance, tenacity and patience you can achieve goals (juggling tricks) that you might not have believed yourself capable of. This positive quality can also be transferred to other areas.
  • Ability to relax - the harmonious flow of the rhythmic juggling movement is internally balancing and calming, this leads to a reduction in stress. Short juggling breaks (2 -10 min) in the work or learning process promote relaxation as "active breaks" and can be inserted anywhere without the need for special space, equipment or clothing.
