Trouble With COVID-19

Is COVID getting to you? Try singing.

Singing causes physical and emotional changes in the body. When we sing, we release endorphins, the ‘feel good’ biochemicals. Another hormone released when we sing is oxytocin which generates feelings of intimacy and connection and lessens feelings of loneliness.

Singing has also been shown to boost immune systems and reduce stress levels.

Singing is a wonderful expression of feelings, especially joy.

Singing to a child or when a child sings to someone else, it encourages eye contact, communication and a bond.

Singing is fun!
