Choir singing makes people happier – apparently!
Do you remember singing in the car? My sister and I used to sing on family trips. Our favourites were songs from Broadway musicals like The Sound of Music and The Music Man. Both of the stories centre around music – a powerful passtime with so many benefits. We were not miserable or fighting when we were singing. Our parents in the front seat probably got a little tired of it though. I do think my mother occasionally saying "I'd like to listen to the scenery for awhile."
You don't have to be in a choir to benefit from choir singing. Just two or more people belting out a song can have the same benefits.
How about you? Do you need proof or have you already tried it and found it to be helpful?
