A place to hold things that inspire, amaze, inform, and/or educate

Singing can be very beneficial to our body physically, emotionally, socially, and/or even spiritually, and here is some known benefits of singing. As one person sings and so controls his/her breathing, the benefits are very similar to the benefits of working out. (That is right. When you sings, you are working out. Isn’t it great?) Emotionally, singing can help calm our emotion, can generate positive mood, can release stress, and can make us happier. Socially, singing in group can generate the bond and interaction within the group, and it is no secret that people who socialize live longer.
However, there is a new found benefit of singing. In this study singing helps people with Alzheimer’s communicate again. Due to the disease, people who previously could not form words, could not remember things, and so could not communicate can once again remember things, form words, and communicate. Even more so, they can start to learn new things. The benefits are even found by singing along the melody and rhyme without words, which I feel is truly amazing. Source: BBC New.
I LOVE singing in the church, which has been beneficial spiritually to me. And now, I finally come to know that I have been blessed indeed beyond those spiritual blessings. In fact, I have been blessed in all possible ways – physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. So all you saints (people of God), sing onto the Lord, for it is GOOD.
