"The only thing better than singing is more singing." ~ Ella Fitzgerald
Singing is good for you. Many studies done over a number of years have focused on the health benefits of singing, and the evidence is overwhelming.
* Singing releases endorphins into your system and makes you feel energized and uplifted.
* People who sing are healthier than people who don’t.
* Singing gives the lungs a workout.
* Singing tones abdominal and intercostal muscles and the diaphragm, and stimulates circulation.
* Singing makes us breathe more deeply than many forms of strenuous exercise, so we take in more oxygen, improve aerobic capacity and experience a release of muscle tension as well.” — Professor Graham Welch, Director of Educational Research, University of Surrey, Roehampton, UK
