Singing doesn't just strengthen the lungs

Why does music help?

Singing and music can help cope with Long Covid in several ways:

Emotional Support: 

Music has the ability to express and enhance emotions. Listening to music or singing can create a positive mood, reduce stress and improve overall well-being. It can also help relieve negative emotions such as fear or sadness.

Distraction and relaxation: 

Music can serve as a distraction from the symptoms and challenges of Long Covid. Immersing yourself in the sounds and rhythms can take the focus away from pain or discomfort and have a relaxing effect.

Physical activity and rehabilitation: 

Singing and playing music can involve physical activity, which can help improve endurance and respiratory function. Breathing techniques while singing can help increase lung capacity and strengthen respiratory muscles. Music therapy can also be used in rehabilitation to improve motor skills and coordination.

Social interaction and community: 

Singing and playing music can be social activities that promote interaction with other people. This can reduce the feeling of social isolation that can occur with Long Covid. Singing or playing music together in groups can create a feeling of belonging and cohesion.

Cognitive Stimulation: 

Learning and practicing music requires cognitive skills such as attention, memory and problem solving. This can help stimulate and maintain cognitive functions.

It is important to note that the effect of singing and music on Long Covid can vary from person to person. It may be helpful to work with a music therapist or musical intervention professional to find the best approaches and techniques to suit individual needs and abilities.
