Singing & Humming

Your own voice is a powerful tool for healing and wellbeing. Yes singing in the shower is actually good for you!

Sing along to music while driving to work, doing the house work, in the shed or garden, or even going for a walk.

Humming is a great alternative to singing.

To start your hum, take a deep breath in and on the exhale let your hum take shape. It doesn't matter what it sounds like, just find a comfortable hum to start with. 


With every following exhale expand on your hum. Experiment with your hum, make it longer, higher or lower in tone, louder and softer.

Singing and humming daily has many benefits including: increased levels of nitric oxide, a molecule that promotes healing and widens blood vessels, reducing stress levels, lowering blood pressure and heart rate, reduces the number of thoughts that fill your head.
