Six Important Reasons To Sing

The Wonderful World of Singing

Do you love to sing? Singing is one of the most enjoyable activities we can do. And as far as communication goes, singing is much more effective and enjoyable than a long speech. I'd rather listen to a sermon presented by singing than speaking any time.

Singing sort of goes hand-in-hand with a nice hot shower, a birthday party, worship and praise and of course, Christmas. Singing has been around since the beginning of time (3500 B.C.E.) and I guarantee you, it will continue its popularity throughout eternity if I have anything to say about it.

But did you know that singing provides physical and mental benefits as well? Aside from the fact that singing clears the mind of clutter and negativity, it also gives your immune system a boost. It truly does.

Come with me now, to explore more of the wonderful reasons to sing.

Reasons to Sing

Reason # 1 Singing is Actually Healthy

In a world of political, economic and personal disintegration, music is not a luxury but a necessity-not simply because it is theraputic nor because it is the 'universal language,' but because it is the persistent focus of man's intelligence, aspiration and good will.

You have been blessed with a physical body which is also a musical instrument. Think of it! All you have to do to "play" your instrument is to inhale, sustain your speaking voice using a variety of pitch and sounds, then exhale. It's really quite remarkable when you think about it.

Never mind that your voice may not have a professional and pleasing sound. Sing anyhow. Why? Take a look at the first reason.

  • Singing is healthy for us. It develops the lungs and purifies the blood by emptying more completely the lungs of used air and filling them deeply with fresh air. Our lungs never stop working for us. They carry oxygen to the blood and remove toxic gases 24 hours a day, everyday. This process works better as we learn to breathe by using the diaphragmatic muscle. Not only are we exercising our lungs a we sing, we are also exercising our heart.

I'd also like to emphasize how singing detoxifies our lymphatic system. Through the process of deep breathing, when we sing, we clear the lymphatic system of toxins, thereby supporting our immune system.

To summarize: Singing can help to promote lung development as well as promote oxygen to the blood system and the brain.

Studies have show that singing increases endorphins in the brain causing you to feel good and even change your emotional mood. So the next time you're feeling out of sorts give yourself a shot-in-the-arm by diving into a favorite song. Sing with gusto, confidence and joy!

“If I cannot fly, let me sing.”

― Stephen Sondheim

Reason # 2 Your Speaking Voice Will Sound So Much Better

Singing gives a pleasanter, richer speaking voice and improved speech. This adds to the charm of the personality. Through voice lessons, with a qualified teacher, articulation is stressed which adds clarity to the speaking voice. And since we speak all day long why not save wear and tear on our over-used voice?

In fact according to Dr. Louann Brizendine, clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco, a woman speaks about 20,000 words a day. A man, on-the-other-hand, uses about 7,000. However, new studies according to Matthias R. Mehl, a psychology professor at the University of Arizona, states both men and women use an average of 16,000 words a day.

Whether we use 20,000 words each day or 16,000 words - the point is: When we learn to sing correctly we also learn to speak correctly.

Reason # 3 - Help For The Brain

Singing strengthens the memory and the power of concentration. When you sing, you are exercising your brain. And like the rest of your body the brain must receive exercise too. Learning new songs, or memorizing the words to familiar songs strengthens the brain.

Reason # 4 Depression Be Gone

Self-expression. Singing as a means of self-expression is a medium of release for pent-up emotions. Feelings are not judged when singing about them. Therefore, a level of freedom is reached emotionally when singing. Depression, anger and anxiety is reduced and in most instances completely released.

Reason # 5 Boosts Self-Confidence

Increases self-confidence. Singing increases poise, self-confidence, and develops character through difficulties overcome. Singing brings contentment in a way that no other activity does.

“Those who wish to sing always find a song.”

― Swedish Proverb

Reason #6 Singing Can Heal

I have personally witnessed healing as a result from singing. Besides managing my own chronic pain, while performing songs at rest homes for the elderly, I've watched an old man feed himself for the first time in years. After using his hands to applaud along with his pals he actually reached for the spoon sitting on the table before him and fed himself. The nurses watched in dis-belief.

Another example was the time I sang at an Alzheimer's Convention in California. A lovely woman in attendance couldn't remember the names of her children. But as I sang the song "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" she began singing along completing the entire song.

Make no mistake about it - singing heals. Make singing a habit and see for yourself.

How often do you hum or sing?

Singing is good for your health. How often do you hum or sing?

In Conclusion

These 6 Good Reasons To Sing are just a few of the great reasons for singing.
Singing surrounds the brain with healthy chemicals giving us a natural high. And here's one more reason you'll like - singing actually produces the same chemicals as sex and chocolate.

Whether or not you become a great singer is not nearly as important as becoming a great person. One that is sensitive and understanding. And one that appreciates and understands artistic beauty and mankind.

So whatever your reason is for singing, get busy and do a lot of it.

Enjoy!

I'm blessed to be in a musical family - my mother sings, my brother plays the piano and violin, his daughter's play as well, my son plays viola (he has autism) - and my daughter! Oh what a blessing she is! She is starting her second year in choral studies, she is a Soprano 1. Now that she is away in college I do not get to hear her and I miss it! Many times I would be found sitting on the hallway floor.... listening, as she practiced in her bedroom.

LOVE the "Singing in the Rain" video! Great musical!

Thank you vocalcoach - this hub made me happy :)

Thanks so much for reminding us of all the wonderful benefits that singing provides. I particularly love singing in the car on road trips. Hubby and I don't have great singing voices but it still makes us feel good, especially when we're singing upbeat Oldies tunes and broadway tunes like Singing in the Rain.

Voted up, useful, awesome, beautiful and interesting.

missolive - How absolutely magnificent that you have so much music in your family! I love the story about how you sat on the floor next to your daughter's room to listen to her sing. She is no doubt preparing christmas songs with her choir. Thank you for visiting!

Hyphenbird - I'm sure that your singing is not out of tune. And even if it is...God smiles each time you sing.

Thank you, precious one for your comments. VC

Movie Master - One day I will meet with you on "Skype" and prove to you that you can sing...and that you sing in tune. That's a promise!

Ruby - And the same goes for you ! I can prove to you that you sing naturally and pleasantly. We simply have to "dust it off". And one day, all those who are now asking you to stop singing will be begging for more!

vocalcoach 5 years ago from Nashville Tn. Author

Happyboomernurse - Now, you have the right idea as far as singing goes. It's not about how you sound on the outside, but how you feel on the inside when you sing. Loved your comments. You have such a positive, healthy outlook. Love that!

Paradise7 - You are one more of my hubfriends that I would love to train to sing. After a few lessons, your fellow tenants would be shouting, more...more!

Beautiful hub Audrey. I love to sing and enjoyed reading the benefits. I especially liked that it doesn't matter if your voice is pleasant or not. I think we are all too self conscious of what we sound to others.

I don't know how it happened, but somewhere along the way I learned to love opera (even as a preteen it fascinated me). My children will attest to my attempts at singing along with lovely voices-they would protest loud and clear begging me to stop.

But, when it comes from the heart the ears (for me) turned deaf and I just ignored my children, LOL Did I read that you finished early in the a.m. You are determined to finish aren't you! LOL

Hi, Audrey. This is inspiring information about the joy of singing. I love to sing at the top of my voice accompanying the radio while driving but have to remember to keep my windows closed. Otherwise, traffic halts, charging bulls stop in their tracks, birds fall to earth, and the ocean tide reverses. :)

neeli - I am please to learn that you sing in your car. Excellent! Singing brings you joy and peace. That alone is enough reason to sing. Thank you.

Arlynne - I, too like Michael Jackson. There will never be anyone like him. So glad you liked my hub. Thank you!

mckbirdbks - Oh dear, I must agree with you about Tiny Tim. All I can say is - he had a lot of nerve. Never could decide whether he really thought he could sing, or if he knew he couldn't and played on that for publicity.

We both know, that you sing better than TT, so go for it!!!

healty bounderies...all this to say..I love singing and it hYou know I grew up in Ireland and most of my memories are of singing, at pubs,on the way to a game,when guests came to our house,on the street and just about every friday night :0)

I did not discover depresssion until I moved to The USA and it was considered rude to sing in public, oddly enough they have serious realtionship issues over here ???...recently I visited Maui and felt at home with the locals and now we are planning to move there...I have missed fun realtionships with as nothing to do with the quality of my voice but the freedom it brings!!!!!!!!!! Great Hub !!!!

Voted up Coach. As a singer and writer, I was always able to transfer my emotions on a piece of paper. Being able to sing it back in song is emotionally uplifting for the soul. You make great points. Music has become a major part of life for everyone. It feels good being able to sing out loud an emotion or situation that other people can relate too.

I love to sing when I am alone or walking the dog. Being a lover of nature and the rolling countryside, I like to cheer myself up whilst spending time in the fields that surround the house. I don't sing at home my other half tells me "don't ever give up your day job" lol but one of my other pleasure is I sing to my horse when out riding., It gives him confidence to pass tractors and walk over things that scare him. No it isn't the voice scaring him, it gives him comfort just to listen. My excuse and I am sticking to it. lol

Hello, vocalcoach, GREAT hub! Wonderful read, artwork, and lay-out. This subject, singing, is something I cannot do. My wife is a God-gifted singer in our home and I just let her do the singing. You give some fantastic tips here and if I were wanting to sing, I would use these. Still voted up and all across. I am now a fan and follower, if that is okay. Sincerely, Kenneth Avery, from a rural town (Hamilton), in northwest Alabama that makes one think of Mayberry, where Andy and Barney worked. Keep up the great writing.

Hello Songbird

You clearly have a deep passion for singing. The desire to sing is a strong message telling you to sing. I'm glad you are inspired to regain your singing voice. It sounds like it's time to FREE your voice.

I am now following you here on hubpages and noticed you haven't written your first hub. Why not get started by sharing with others why you stopped singing?

I'm looking forward to reading your articles. And I'll be stopping by to welcome you on your first hub.

If you need help just let me know. Have a wonderful day.

Audrey
