Singing can affect us in many ways. It evokes strong emotional responses. Furthermore, it can improve your overall health and well-being!
How Is Singing Good For Your Health?
Singing can reduce stress, anxiety and even help to prevent heart problems. Furthermore, it is good for improving lung function. So, sing along to your favorite toons as often as you would like!
How Can Singing Affect You?
There is a difference between people who sing and those who don’t! Individuals who sing tend not to be only healthier, but also brighter than those who don’t! Brighter? ─ You might ask! Well, it turns out that singing uplifts the spirits and allows people to feel more energized. Uplifted people who have lots of energy usually are more motivated in many areas of their lives.
Singing also reduces stress. When we let go of our stresses, stress hormones such as cortisol are released. This release allows the body to relax, which in turn, reduces the risk of many health ailments such as heart disease.
Sing To Enhance Your Breathing!
Singing works out the diaphragm muscles while stimulating circulation. Singing can help your body to learn to breath more deeply which is good to relieve stress, as well. Deep breathing is used in meditation and anti-stress breathing exercises.
Singing Is An Aerobic Workout For Your Lungs!
Singing increases the amount of oxygen that comes into the lungs and works out the lungs in an aerobic fashion. As you sing and work out your lungs, you are also strengthening your diaphragm. By doing all of this, it is more than likely that you will experience less fatigue and less muscle tension.
Sing To Uphold Your Posture & Voice!
As we sing into old age, the exercises involved can help to improve and maintain your posture! Furthermore, if you continue to sing as you age, you will maintain your voice by exercising your vocal chords on a regular basis!
In conclusion, let go and sing your heart out! Don’t worry if you can’t sing; think of all the health benefits involved! You will be overall, happier and healthier!
