Five Reasons Why Singing Will Make You Smile

Without being able to help it, most of us have a little singsong every day. Whether that’s in the shower, whilst we’re making breakfast or listening to the radio. Singing is one of the best forms of expression there is!

You don’t need to be the best singer to reap the benefits, either. Here are five top reasons why singing will make you smile:

It’s a mood-enhancer

Singing releases endorphins into your system and makes you feel energised and uplifted. Like laughing, singing brings oxygen into the body and helps us to find gratitude which, in turn, boosts our moods and makes us happy!

It improves your breathing

Singing gives the lungs a workout, it tones abdominal and intercostal muscles and the diaphragm, and stimulates circulation. So you could actually say that singing is a bit of a workout!

It’s a stress-reliever

Singing allows the flow of blood and new oxygen which lessens anxiety. Following a rhythm, whether that’s singing or even just humming builds muscles in our brains and helps us relax.

It teaches communication skills

Singing can help children get familiar with the structure and inflections of language. It can strengthen their lips and tongues which encourages clear speaking, and also expands their vocabulary and teaches them about creative language and rhyme.

It builds confidence

Singing alone or in groups builds confidence and encourages you to step out of your comfort zone and say ‘yes, I can!’
