Singing for Better Mental Health

Singing & our Brains!

The neuroscience of singing shows that when we sing our neurotransmitters connect in new and different ways. It fires up the right temporal lobe of our brain, releasing endorphins that make us smarter, healthier, happier & more creative.

When we sing with other people this effect is amplified. Singing increases self-awareness, self-confidence & our ability to communicate with others. It is the greatest form of expression. Singing decreases stress, comforts us and helps us to forge ahead our identity and influence in the world.

Regular exercising of the vocal cords van prolong your life and it’s a great way to keep in shape because we are exercising our lungs and heart. Singing has physical benefits because it is an aerobic activity and this increases oxygenation in the blood stream and exercises the major muscles groups in our upper bodies, even when we are sitting.
