At Rudig Jensen Ford CDJR, we make a habit of singing in the car – and it turns out, it’s more than just fun! Not only does singing in the car make your daily commute or school run more exciting, but it also has some physical and mental benefits, too. Here are a few of the health benefits of singing in the car.
It makes your brain happy.
When you break out in song, your brain actually releases chemicals that can make you happy, including the neurotransmitters oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin. If you happen to be singing along to a song that’s associated with positive memories for you, this effect is increased.
It uses your lungs and heart.
Consider singing like some good cardio – it’s going to make you use your lungs and chest muscles a lot, even if you’re not a great singer. This can help better your cardiovascular health and help you develop better breathing control.
It helps you feel like you belong.
Singing along with the passengers in your car can help you feel like you belong to a group, whether you’re doing it well or not. Research even shows that people who sing with each other can end up synchronizing their heartbeats with one another.
So, next time you get behind the wheel, be sure to complement your drive with your favorite tunes. Your heart, lungs, and brain will thank you. Don’t forget to stop by Rudig Jensen Ford Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and check out our top of the line stereos in our new inventory selections!
