Why Do People Sing In The Bathroom

Admit it. We all have used our hand showers as mics and tried to sing in our bathrooms. Since there are no Karaoke Songs, we tend to sing freely without worrying about anything else. 

There's simply something about singing in the shower that is utterly fulfilling. Even superstars have been known to sing in the shower. Actor Jack Black enjoys singing Led Zeppelin songs. Wyclef Jean is a fan of Bruce Springsteen's music. In the shower, Colbie Caillat warms up her voice with a little Amy Winehouse.

Have you ever been perplexed by this occurrence? Even if we were paid, some of us would refuse to sing in public. Yet, despite this, we won't be embarrassed to sing in the shower. Our soapy musical stylings have a scientific reason, believe it or not.

 

Relaxed and calm

Showers are one of the rare occasions during the day when a person is alone, presumably removed from the anxieties and stress of the materialistic world. For many, it is the only moment they are entirely alone, without the company of another person or the presence of their phone. But, even if it is just for a short time, this isolated period may bring out the rockstar in a person.

Singing in a small, private environment has a relaxing and refreshing impact on those who use the restroom. Many specialists feel that singing in the toilet is similar to taking a perfect tranquilliser with two effects: it calms the nerves and lifts the emotions.

People don't usually sing when they're upset (with a few exceptions), but they can in the bathroom since it's a tiny, warm, and comfortable space. In front of others or a huge room full of people, our mind is free of all the inhibitions that could impact it. As a result, a toilet is an excellent place to start singing a song since the mind is at ease.

Furthermore, as you relax, your brain produces dopamine (the joy hormone), which stimulates your creative energies, and singing is unquestionably a creative activity!

 

Breathing easier

Your breathing improves when you're in a state of utter relaxation and water is running over your body. Because you breathe a bit deeper in the restroom than usual, the oxygen supply in your blood is increased, which promotes circulation and gives you an incredible, invigorated sensation. The advantages of singing in the restroom are comparable to those of meditation.

 

It is never too late to sing in the bathroom.

Another benefit of singing in the shower is that you can never be too old to sing. According to studies, singing in a restricted environment in one's senior years might improve mental and dental health. For example, the effects of singing were investigated in a study done by researchers at Tsurumi University on 44 old adults (60+ years of age).

Every single one of the 44 patients who took part in this study was on some sort of respiratory or cardiovascular medicine. Before they were ordered to sing, their height, weight, pulse, and blood pressure were all taken. Then, the majority of them performed three songs in a row, each lasting over three minutes. Their blood samples were obtained for additional analysis after the singing exercise. A questionnaire was also given to the participants.

Cortisol, a stress hormone, was shown to be lower due to this study's findings. After singing, the subjects felt calm, relieved, and at ease, as evidenced by their responses to the questionnaire. According to one study, singing in a confined place has both physical and psychological advantages for older persons.

 

Singing in the bathroom is truly one of the finest habits you can develop, for all the reasons stated, as well as the pure delight that may come from a cathartic musical release. Even if you're a less-than-great vocalist, the bathroom provides a good combination of physiological, psychological, and auditory variables that encourage a perfect environment for singing
