GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN – Singing your favorite song unashamedly at the top of your lungs with your best friends, cousins while sitting in traffic or on a road trip are some of life’s greatest memories. Who cares if people can see and hear you? Just don’t care.
Indeed, music makes everything better. It relieves pain, reduces stress, increases productivity, fosters euphoria and inspires even the least coordinated people to stand up and bust a move. Music is a beautiful thing and one of life’s greatest gifts.
One of the most effective ways of capturing the truth of music is through singing. It allows you to feel a song with your entire body and soul, turning your voice into an instrument.
Research has shown singing can improve your health, increase happiness and even extend your life.
A study conducted by researchers at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden found that singing produces lower levels of cortisol, reducing stress while improving our immune systems. In other words, singing could potentially help keep you from getting sick.
Oxytocin also decreases feelings of depression and loneliness, making us feels more connected with the world, which is precisely why singing with other people feels even better.
No matter where are you, sing in the car, sing in the shower, sing karaoke, sing while you’re working, sing while you’re walking, and just sing.
