5 Benefits of Singing
So you want to learn how to sing?
Think about it for a moment, up on stage like Nikki Nikki, or Preap Sovath, singing your heart out, the fans going wild, and you enjoying every moment.
We have all been there, the singing in the shower, the family telling us to be quiet, but singing is not only just fun, there is so many more benefits to singing that you may never have known...
Singing reduces stress and anxiety...
Did you know that singing releases hormones called Endorphins?
This is the joy and pleasure hormone, the exact opposite of stress or anxiety!
And not only that, singing is something that you probably love so much, and when we do the things we love, it makes us feel happy and relaxed, just like our boy Pharrell here.

Singing actually helps your facial muscles
(making you more pretty or handsome), and also helps you breathe much better and stronger (by using your diaphragm and intercostal muscles).
When you are learning to sing, one of the first things you learn is that you have to use your diaphragm and your abdominal muscles to have a strong voice.
But its not only that, singing will help you improve your posture, you will have to train your body to be upright and straight, which is great for your back (making you look taller and feel more confident).
Your intercostal muscles are the group of muscles that go between your ribs. These muscles will also receive a workout when singing, which is great for your body.
The best part?
You will be working the muscles in your face every time you sing, continually exercising muscles that tend to stay still during the rest of the day.
So, when you think about it, you're actually involving many body parts when you’re singing.
Sound silly? It’s not...
Singing helps your memory too
When you learn new songs, you are working your memory and its ability to store information.
But, if you really want to give yourself a challenge, you can try some cool different techniques, to help improve your learning.
You can try memorizing songs that you find very difficult, or maybe even that are in a language that is not your native tongue.
It’s like this…
The more creative you get with the ways you learn, the more your brain will work and the more benefits you will have as a result.
Now the really cool stuff...
Singing helps you sleep better...
It does this by helping strengthen the muscles in your throat and palate, and singing actually helps you stop snoring (maybe tell dad) and can help with sleep apnea (a serious sleep disorder).
Also, you'll notice that you are breathing better and deeper, and all this simply from learning how to sing properly.
When your body has the right amount of oxygen in it, it will help support your health in general!
And to top it all off...
Singing makes you smarter
And able to understand things better
Funny but true, you see when you sing, you are challenging yourself to learn new things. This helps create new connections in your brain and is great for understanding new things.
It is good to push yourself, learn to read and write music, perhaps even try songs in different languages so that you can always be growing and expanding your talent.
