Health Benefits of Singing

Health Benefits of Singing
Wow! There is more to singing than we thought! 

Even in the old days, David already knew how good it is to sing praises to the Lord! There is even a book -- the Book of Psalms -- that is dedicated to singing, praising and worshiping our Creator!
Even more so, the Bible is filled with encouragement to speak to ourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in our hearts to the Lord.

No wonder when I'm feeling so low and down and I begin to sing -- especially those songs with uplifting message, those songs that declare God's goodness instead of the ones that seem to magnify my problems -- I am starting to feel better. Have you also experienced that?

I love this - when people sing together, they feel increased sense of community, belonging and shared endeavor. It reminds me of the church where we sing together in one accord and its importance to my well-being. It also reminds me of friends and barkadas taking pleasure through singing with videoke or guitar or any accompaniments. It makes sense. Community. Belongingness. Now, I understand better. (Oo na, kahit galit ako sa sobrang lakas mag-videoke. Haha!)

One thing is also for sure - the benefits of singing go beyond physical and psychological. It benefits our social and spiritual lives too!

So what are we waiting for? It's time to raise that voice! We are never out of tune in God's ears! Sing those blues away!
