How can singing karaoke help relieve stress

For an average person who works 8-10 hours per day 5 days a week, it is inevitable to experience stress from work. There are many things that can bring about stress such as unmet deadlines, the load of unfinished work, a hostile work environment, a terrible boss, or it could be a mix of small things piling up and dragging you down. Well, as a matter of fact, you don’t need a busy job to become stressed, sometimes an anxious person on a vacation would experience the same stress levels similar to someone sitting down in his office desk 40 hours a week.


Your friends might suggest that you take on a healthier diet, work out regularly or take a break to help you fight off stress. All those things mentioned are quite true, even your doctor would recommend those things to help you maintain good mental health. But did you know that singing lowers stress levels significantly? According to medical research that singing helps reduce the cortisol, beta-endorphin and oxytocin levels thus modulate mood, stress and mental wellness. We at Popsical, are happy to have a product ( smart karaoke device) that our customers would not only enjoy but would also help them overcome stress and develop good mental health. We have listed ways on how singing karaoke can help reduce stress.


Singing karaoke will help you release endorphins
You may not know it but when you sing, your brain releases a chemical that acts as a natural anti-depressant. When you release endorphins, your mood shifts making you feel happy and energetic. Hearing a song itself gives your brain a response that elicits pleasure regardless of how it sounds like. So whenever you decide to sing karaoke with your friends or family, you will experience a shift in mood whether you’re the singer or you’re simply just listening.

Singing karaoke lowers stress levels
Hearing music or producing music in any form relaxes the brain. The drop of cortisol in the bloodstream is relative to the heavy breathing and release of muscle tension that you do when you sing in the karaoke. All that energy released as you belt at the top of your lungs helps shoo your troubles away.

Singing karaoke promotes bonding
The oxytocin or what others call the “love hormone” is released every time you sing. It boosts your sense of trust and affection towards others consequently promotes bonding with others. It is believed that because of the hormones released during singing it makes one to less likely get lonely.

Are you feeling down? Pick up the mic and get singing!
