1. Singing strengthens the immune system
According to a study, singing boosts the immune system. The researchers noticed a significant increase in the Immunoglobulin A, the protein that function as antibodies, after a session of singing.
2. Singing is a form of workout
Especially for the elderly, the disabled, or the injured, singing can be an excellent alternative for an exercise. Your lungs will get a workout whenever you use proper singing techniques and vocal projections. Since you are pulling in a greater amount of oxygen when singing, it is believed that singing can increase your aerobic capacity and stamina.
3. Singing helps with sleep
If you’re having trouble sleeping due to snoring and sleep apnea, singing can help reduce that. Experts believe that singing can strengthen throat and palate muscles, which is a big factor in stopping snoring and sleep apnea.
