Singing Changes your Brain

Have you ever noticed that singers and those who enjoy singing as a hobby are always in a good mood? This is backed up by science and singing has been proven to provide incredible health benefits.

1.      Improves Your Mood

Singing releases the same chemicals and hormones as chocolate and sex do, meaning that they improve your mood and give a sense of relaxation.  It releases endorphins as well, which in turn boosts energy and prevents lethargy.

 

2.      Lung Workout

Spending a lot of time singing activates the abdominal, intercostals muscles, and the diaphragm, which in turn gives the lungs a workout.  It also stimulates circulation and reduces muscle tension.

3.      Builds Community

Singing has a wide plethora of mental benefits, but it also promotes social health benefits, such as wellbeing, empowerment, confidence, and lowers the feeling of loneliness and isolation.

4.      Clears Sinuses

While participating in the act of singing, you are cleaning and clearing out the sinuses and respiratory tubes.

5.      Therapeutic

Last but not least, singing works as an amazing therapeutic!  It is a form of release due to the release of stress and other qualities which can cut down happiness.  In brief, produces satisfying and therapeutic sensations and lessens stress.

According to a certain study, singers were found to have lower levels of cortisol, which means lower stress.  Many studies confirm that singing relieves anxiety and leads to better and quality life.  The best part is that you don’t need to be a singer in order to reap the benefits of singing.  Singing as a hobby will do the trick, too!
