Singing is good for you!
Not only is singing a great way to raise money, research shows that it’s also good for your heart.
After studies of the developmental and medical aspects of singing for 30 years, it’s been found that the health benefits of singing are both physical and psychological.
“Singing has physical benefits because it is an aerobic activity that increases oxygenation in the blood stream and exercises major muscle groups in the upper body, even when sitting.
Singing has psychological benefits too because of its normally positive effect in reducing stress levels through the action of the endocrine system which is linked to our sense of emotional well-being. Psychological benefits are also evident when people sing together as well as alone because of the increased sense of community, belonging and shared endeavour.”
