The 6 ways singing can help mental health


If you've tried everything, from weekly therapy sessions to meditation to a regular exercise schedule, here’s one more tool to add to your list: Singing.


Here are 6 ways singing could help treat symptoms of depression:


1. Singing immediately changes your mood.

2. Singing makes you breathe deeply.

3. Singing is aerobic exercise.

4. Singing is emotional expression.

5. Singing is just plain fun.

6. Singing can connect you with other people.


Tania de Jong AM makes the case that people singing together can change the brain. Pushing the idea that creativity is the strategic tool of the 21st century, she says how our voices have been silenced and that it's not doing us any good. She explains how singing is a survival mechanism, how it makes our hearts beat together and can help heal strokes and depression.


With singing, and the potential she believes it has, Tania dedicates herself to enhancing and promoting ingenuity and founded Creativity Australia and Creative Universe to do so. As a leading Australian soprano and through 'With One Voice', Tania works with disadvantaged communities. In 2008 she was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia for services to the arts and for the establishment and development of arts enrichment programs for schools and communities.
