Humming is a soothing form of sound medicine, infusing your body with many therapeutic benefits. Imagine filling your head with the vibration of a calming “humm” for one, two or even 5 minutes. It’s bliss. Bliss that you can create inside your head and body within seconds. We also can receive the same benefits from whistling.
The simple act of humming can have similar effects, according to research into what’s known as vibrational medicine, and that various frequencies can produce healing properties. Along with calming your spirits and your nervous system, it improves your breathing rate and boosts oxygen distribution throughout the body.
Humming may be one of the most natural things a person can do, yet the benefits are surprisingly far reaching. It produces a positive effect on both heart rate and blood pressure. Smiling, while humming your favorite tune or the sound “Om,” (pronounced AOM) for two minutes, changes your mindset and emotions. If you started humming right now, your muscles in the face, jaws, and shoulders would begin to relax. GO FOR IT! START HUMMING!
