Shower singers rejoice. Raising your voice over the spray can provide a myriad of health benefits.
Does this mean your belting will cease to embarrass your kids and annoy your other half? Probably not. What it does mean is that finally have a justification for your morning rendition of Amazing Grace.
Relieving your stress is just one of the health benefits of your morning shower singing session. Exercising your lungs causes you to inhale an excess of oxygen, which is a well-documented way to reduce stress.
Singing in the shower can also help reduce cortisol, a hormone that can elevate your blood sugar and blood pressure levels. This can cause inflammation in the body, potentially resulting in stress, strokes, and type 2 diabetes.
Interested in strengthening your back and abdomen? Singing can help that too. Singing can also boost your memory. Songs are essential to the way we learn languages. By singing in the morning, you can build your brain’s memory retention. To get the most out of your morning singing, try mixing up your song selection.
Furthermore, signing in the shower can also help you reduce your pain. This is because signing releases dopamine and oxytocin, which can induce happiness and remove any physical discomfort.
So go ahead, sing it sister. This is one morning ritual you should keep.
