Singing makes happy and healthy
Reasons why singing is not only a joy for your ears
The human voice is the most widespread instrument worldwide, because everyone is able to sing. It is not only a melodious phenomenon of our body, but rather a product of the interaction of our lungs, muscle activities, larynx and the vocal tract, which makes the sound perceptible.
Singing is not only a feast for your ears. In fact, the human body gets the positive strength of singing back! So far, researches on this subject focused more on the impacts of listening to music, than on making music.
Singing makes healthy and vital!
People all over the world come together under the pretext of music and bring their bodies into the swing. A study of the Swedish University of Gothenburg has shown, that singing together connects so much, that not only the muscle and nerve activities adapt oneself to the rhythm of the music but also the heart rate of the singers.
The lung capacity and muscles as well as the cardiovascular system are strengthened through the controlled inhalation and exhalation while singing. We feel fitter and more energetic through the continuous oxygenation. The heartbeat slows through the long exhalation while singing and inhalation stimulates the pulse. This rhythm is considered healthy. Even with regular singing respiratory infections can be prevented.
Singing makes immune!
Scientists of the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe-University in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) discovered an increase of the antibodies and of the immunoglobulin A while singing. This antibody protects against infections and is particularly pronounced.
Singing makes happy!
While singing the endorphins serotonin and dopamine are produced increasingly whereas the stress hormones decrease. The hormone Oxytocin will be intensified, so people experience a greater sense of love, feeling of security and confidence. This feeling we experience while singing together.
All these positive aspects of singing, which are triggered in our bodies, are arguments to warble right now. Isn't it?
