Evidence – The positive impact of singing
Singing for Mental Wellbeing
When we sing, the body has an actual chemical response which makes us feel better. We release endorphins – giving us that ‘feel good’ factor, oxytocin – the hormone released when we hug, which helps with social bonding and Dopamine – linked to that shiver-down-the-spine feeling. Singing has also been shown to reduce the body’s level of Cortisol – the stress hormone.
