Singing Reduces Stress
Do you ever find yourself singing your stressful or sad days away? Did you notice you end up feeling better? Well, there’s a reason for that.
You feel relaxed after taking a deep breath and let out musical vibrations move through you, as your physical and emotional landscape alters.
Singing is exhilarating and transformative. It gives a calming and yet energizing effect on people. It’s like an infusion of the perfect tranquilizer, the kind that both soothes your nerves and elevates your spirits, according to researchers.
A hormone called “endorphins” is released when you sing, giving you a feeling of elation. Another hormone released during singing is oxytocin, which alleviates anxiety and stress. It also enhances feelings of trust and bonding, which could explain why depression and loneliness is reduced while singing.
So whether you’re feeling tired or under the weather, just sing it out. Singing can be a therapeutic way of alleviating whatever negativity you are feeling. Doesn’t matter if you go to a karaoke bar or sing alone at home.
