No matter what type of music you like – pop, blues, oldies, Broadway musicals or a wide range of other musical styles, forget humming or tapping your fingers. Learn the lyrics to your favorite melodies, and then sing out loud – there may be health benefits waiting.
Research is now finding that when you sing to whatever tune is on your mind, the act of singing out loud can be good for your health and as a bonus, help improve the aging process.
Have you noticed some professional organizations and senior groups include an opening song or two at their meetings? Don’t let the fun of the moment kid you – these groups not only see singing as an upbeat start to a meeting, they may know that singing has hidden health benefits.
