Singing Party at PopStory Parties
Singing is good for you!
Scientific research says that singing has a psychological effect on your brain’s ‘happy’ chemicals called endorphin’s, as we sing these are released making you happy and positive. Oxytocin is a hormone released which alleviates stress and anxiety, this also enhances trust and bonding.
Karaoke and singing in front of people as can naturally build confidence and which has a broad and long lasting effect on children and adults and can really help them in other parts of their lives at school and in the workplace.
- A study published in Australia in 2008 revealed that on average, choral singers rated their satisfaction with life higher than the public — even when the actual problems faced by those singers were more substantial than those faced by the general public [source: MacLean].
- A 1998 study found that after nursing-home residents took part in a singing program for a month, there were significant decreases in both anxiety and depression levels [source: ISPS].
- A very recent study even attempts to make the case that “music evolved as a tool of social living,” and that the pleasure that comes from singing together is our evolutionary reward for coming together cooperatively, instead of hiding alone, every cave-dweller for him or herself.
- Researchers at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, found that choristers’ heartbeats synchronise when they sing together, bringing about a calming effect that is as beneficial to our health as yoga. They asked a group of teenagers to perform three choral exercises – humming, singing a hymn and chanting – and monitored their heart rhythms during each. They showed that singing has a dramatic effect on heart rate variability, which is linked to a reduced risk of heart disease.
There you go proof that, singing is as good as yoga and not to mention a lot more fun and no where near as sweaty (no offence yoga lovers!).
