Jan 29, 2008
The art of singing is something which is thought of by many people, as a simple way of receiving popularity along with entering the showbiz industry and earning lots of money. However, there are many more advantages that singing has to offer those particular people with the art.

Listed below are some practical uses for singing in everyday life.

1. Some things learned in singing can be applied to our daily lives

A great deal of discipline is required when learning how to sing. It is this type of discipline that can be applied to other aspects of life.

You will also breathe correctly during your everyday life, when you have learned the correct breathing techniques for singing.

2. Singing induces pleasure

Bursting out into song can provide pleasure and relaxation. It does not matter what song you select to sing, or whether or not the song pleases others, if it makes you feel happy then continue.

Located in your inner ear, is an organ by the name of the sacculus. This organ only responds to low frequency, high intensity sound, which are ideally produced from singing. When you sing, this organ immediately reacts by causing the release of pleasure-inducing endorphins.

3. Singing uplifts the spirit

Singing is not only used in religious practices, but it can virtually uplift the spirit and the mood of any person also. It acts as an anti-depressant. However, unlike the forms of anti-depressants that people take as prescription drugs, singing has no adverse side effects.

4. Singing can also be considered as a catharsis

A person can express their feelings by singing. The entire human emotional spectrum can be expressed through singing.

5. Singing is good for respiration and blood circulation

The correct breathing is required for singing. When breathing in the correct way, the following health benefits can happen:

- Due to the correct amount of oxygen taken in by the body, any muscle tension is released.

- Because you are breathing correctly, your body burns more calories. Therefore, you can experience weight loss without becoming tired. Breathing correctly is all that is required.

6. Singing improves socialization in communities

Various studies have proven that there is a link between social participation and singing. This has been observed in choral groups and church organizations that undertake singing activities.

Listed below are some social advantages to singing:

- When you undertake singing in groups, then social tension is released. By singing and working together to create harmony, then a relationship can be resolved.

- A common experience is created for the group by singing, which contributes more to the solidarity and unity of that particular organization.

With all of the above mentioned advantages of singing, it is important that you find a reason to begin singing today.
