Sing for happiness, healing and well-being!

This material is well-known in singing and science communities, but I’ve borrowed the wording below from, which has a lot of great information!

If you have ever wondered why choral singers look to be on a high, here are some of the reasons. The health benefits of singing are well documented:

  • Singing improves your mood. It releases the same feel-good brain chemicals as sex and chocolate!
  • It is very effective as a stress reliever and improves sleep
  • Singing releases pain-relieving endorphins, helping you to forget that painful tooth/knee/whatever
  • Your posture improves
  • Lung capacity increases
  • Singing clears sinuses and respiratory tubes
  • Your mental alertness improves
  • Singing tones your facial and stomach muscles
  • It boosts your immune system, helping to fight disease and prolonging life expectancy
  • Your confidence increases

And of course the social benefits are important too:

Singing in a group widens your circle of friends and community. Give it a try and see what it can do for you!
