How Singing Is Good For Your Health

Minutes to a Healthier You: Sing Your Heart Out

Sometimes, we don't give enough credit to the little pleasures that can lower our stress levels and improve our quality of life. But if you like to sing, sing out. It's good for your overall health.

Throughout history and cultures, singing has been used as a way to express emotion and help people heal, and the same principles can be applied to our daily lives. Singing can help you relax, boost your mood, and open up your breathing passages. Other studies have linked singing to lowered blood pressure, while other research has shown that it can help people manage chronic pain.

So don't be afraid to sing in the shower, or wail along with your favorite song on the radio. At the very least, it will probably put you in a happier state of mind.

me too dunnonuttin - that's why I sing in the car when I'm commuting to work. Windows up and nobody knows that I can't sing!

I'm fairly certain that my singing would cause high blood pressure and chronic pain for others!
