#nablopomo #nablopomoed Blog A Day 27 Singing…
Now that probably isn’t a proven fact, but there are people working on that. I discovered AIRS: Advancing Interdisciplinary Research into Singing, one of whose themes is singing and health. Music therapy helps patients restore their spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health, according to Laurel Young, one of the AIRS researchers.
Stacy Horn found studies showing singing decreases feelings of depression and loneliness.
And although meta-data analysis of many music related research studies found flaws in methodology, SLATE still reports that singing makes us happy.
I can’t sing, but I do. I love listening to those who can: how do they do that? And I know that singing makes me feel better.
So. As the holidays come and into the blues of winter, be sure to find time to sing: chase those blues away!
