Top Tips for Singing
Cultures, from all around the world, for thousands of years have been singing. The urge to sing and to hear people sing is an innate part of being human. Even those of us who insist that we’re tone deaf or a dreadful singer, can still be found to hum or sing along to the radio when we thing no-one is listening.
Exposure to singing would have started in early life with the singing of nursery songs or lullabies. Studies have show that talking and singing to a baby will help babies learn to talk, and the repetitive songs that children love can help them learn their alphabet and numbers.
Often as we grow, singing for many people becomes a neglected behaviour. We may become self-conscious, or feel that singing is no longer part of our social group. We then lose the confidence in our ability to sing, which is a real shame as there are so many benefits of singing.
- Singing increases the amount of oxygen you take into the body as you take deep breaths. This produces a feeling of alertness and happiness as more oxygen gets to the brain.
- Singing also improves the muscle tone of your rib cage, and in your back and abdominals (belly and lower), because these muscles are involved in controlling the outflow of air and stabilizing the larynx as you sing.
- Singing helps burn calories as you increase the amount of oxygen you take into the body. You use muscle in your face, throat, neck and jaw. Singing can also improve the muscle tone of your rib cage, back and abdominal muscles.
- Improving the muscle tone in the larynx, which singing does, also helps to calm snoring, which improves sleeping and helps counter insomnia.
- Singing is a great stress-buster, and can help shift us from distracting and negative thoughts.
- Singing also has the ability of reaching out to even the hardest of heart, by unlocking feelings and emotions.
- Singing as part of a group or choir can also help you socially by meeting new friends and having that sense of belonging.
There’s many ways that you can sing: in the bath/shower, in the car, but step outside your comfort zone a little and find something that appeals to you, such as a local singing group, karaoke night or take up some singing lessons. You’ll probably find you’re not quite as bad a singer as you initially thought.
