Sing! It's good for you!


Everywhere you go at the moment there are Christmas songs playing. You can't help but have them buzzing around in your head and if you feel like singing them out loud even if it's only in the bath, go ahead it's good for you.

Singing is good exercise for your lungs and so can help people with chronic lung conditions such as asthma or bronchitis. It can even improve snoring because it strengthens the muscles of the throat.  

Singing can also help tone aging face and neck muscles.  

Singing reduces stress which accelerates aging. Stress has a negative effect on immunity, increasing the risk of inflammation in the body which underlies many degenerative diseases such as heart disease, Alzheimer's and arthritis.

Singing energizes - don't you feel invigorated after a good, old sing-song.

So what are you waiting for - join a choir, have a karaoke session or sing your heart out in the bath for 'what would life be without a song to help it along' as Abba used to sing.
