Self Improvement Challenge


Challenge Synopsis
  • I challenge you to sing your favorite song everyday this week (preferably at the top of your lungs)
Why Why Why
  • When you sing the musical vibrations alter you physically and emotionally
  • Endorphins are released by singing, which makes you feel very very good
  • Oxytocin is also released during singing which can alleviate anxiety, stress, and symptoms associated with depression and loneliness
  • Singing regularly can improve your quality of life
Materials
  • You 
  • The lyrics to your favorite song, which you should know by heart
Directions
  • Sing your favorite song everyday this week 
  • Get loud and silly with it
My Take
I’m a  sing a the top of your lungs in the car type of chick. Lately I’ve been pumping Nicki Minaj’s new CD and loving it!!! I don’t need an excuse to sing everyday but I’m still excited about the challenge.

Peace & Love, 
Mary
