Nurturing Thursday 63


Last week I wrote that I’ve recently joined a ‘singing for well~being’ class. So when this quote was shared by the pop duo Karmin on Facebook, it really resonated with me.

On Tuesday afternoon I attended my fourth session and ~ now that I’m losing my self~consciousness ~ I’m beginning to notice the positive effects.

This morning I awoke with one of the wartime favourites in our repertoire going round in my head and this warm~up ditty on the tip of my tongue:
‘My dog can do the can~can better than my cat can but my goldfish finds it difficult!’
(Or words to that effect. sung to the tune of the Can~Can, seated and with appropriate foot movements.)

The leader, Sandy, also runs classes in the local hospital, for people with breathing difficulties and in a couple of weeks time we are going to make a DVD of the exercises she teaches ~ plus a few songs ~ to be given to them, so they can practice at home. There is also an upcoming opportunity for us to sing carols at a local Supermarket, to publicise Breathe Easy, the British Lung Foundation’s support network ~ a cause that I’m interested in, as both my son and grandson suffer from asthma.

I can vouch that the above message is absolutely true. But don’t take my word for it ~ give it a go. You don’t have to join a choir or attend classes; you don’t even have to have a good singing voice, (I’m no Prima Donna, trust me!)

Simply load up your favourite music, open your mouth and let rip. Go on, you know you wanna!
