Singing Karaoke May Help Your Heart

Polka Dot

Karaoke singers in the Southern Tier, listen up.  According to a new study in Sweden, singing Karaoke or singing in your shower is better for you than you thought.

It’s true.  People that sing have a healthier heart than those who do not.  According to the recent study, singers breath deeply during slow songs and as they do, their heart rates rise and fall in time with the music.  Researchers found that singing activates the vagus nerve, which controls the heart rate.  When you exhale, your heart rate slows down and when you inhale it goes back to normal.  Just as yoga or meditating, scientists are finding health benefits in singing, as it reduces the stress on the cadiovascular system.

So the next time someone gives you a hard time for singing out of tune, tell them it’s all for your heart.
