Following on from our Feel Good Ideas Factory in January we wanted to explore the benefits of singing to promote health and wellbeing, especially for those who have long-term conditions. Sammi Tuson has made a promise that if you can make a noise she will help you to sing!
Last night, we learnt how singing can improve your posture, tighten your tummy muscles, more oxygen to the brain, mental clarity, tone your face muscles, to name but just a few of the many benefits. We played games, experimented with noises, made up cocktails, sang songs and even went on bimble through the streets of Coventry giving out our Feel Good flowers and singing in the rain. Most of all we laughed, enjoyed each others company and talked about meeting up again.
Ellie even showed us how to make a carrot into a musical instrument!
Our first Community sing a long session proved to be lots of fun! We learnt how group singing has many benefits including, improved posture, more oxygen to the brain, mental clarity, improved cardiovascular health to Jane but a few. @ellieavra amazed us with a recorder made from a humble carrot! After learning a few breathing techniques and playing some singing games we took to the streets for a gentle ramble whilst singing and giving out our Feel Good flowers. All in all it was a successful first session.
