Sing Out Loud

Personal space is at a premium these days. Whenever you need a little, start singing—in the elevator, on the subway, in line at Starbucks, wherever. People will back off—we’re talking instant elbow room.

Sing, sing a song any time, even by yourself—in the shower, in the car or in your head. It makes you feel good and it’s good for you. According to Patricia Preston-Roberts, a board-certified music therapist in New York City, studies have linked singing to decreased blood pressure, lower heart rate and reduced stress. Singing also exercises your lungs and abdominal muscles, improves posture and best of all, releases those well-loved, much respected, euphoria-inducing endorphins.

Regardless of whether you sing on key or not.
