Three Reasons Seniors Should Regularly Participate in Singing Therapy Sessions
- Increased confidence
As seniors begin to participate regularly in singing therapy, they increasingly start to feel better about themselves and their ability to live a healthy, vibrant life. They feel better able to manage their daily lives, and happily, regain a sense of independence and purposefulness. They become less anxious and remain in a happier mood.
- Better physical health
Seniors can improve their breathing, posture, and eyesight by regularly participating in singing therapy sessions. As time goes by, the improvements on a physical level, coupled with those in the area of mental wellness, will result in seniors enjoying a greater sense of total well-being. Subsequently, as they get healthier, they spend less time in hospitals and more time enjoying the everyday moments that make life so special.
- Increased fellowship with other seniors
Some seniors do not often get to enjoy a variety of social settings as they age. Through group singing, however, they can socialize with others while capitalizing on the benefits of singing therapy. These social interactions can also boost their morale and confidence. This boost in positivity is likely to spill over into other areas of their lives, making for a win-win situation.
