Humming is a powerful tool in our stress reduction toolbox!
Here are just a few benefits:
- Lowers Blood Pressure
- Increases the immune system
- Soothes the nervous system
- Lowers stress and anxiety
- Reduces inflammation
- Makes us happy
We don’t have to carry a tune to get the benefits of humming. Humming is any sound you make while keeping your lips closed.
If you are a care partner, try humming with the one you care for. Sometimes, those with advanced dementia are prone to groaning. Groaning is a form of humming! Our loved ones may intuitively know how to self-soothe!
I have made a short video for you with some thoughts and tips for bringing this easy practice into your life as well as the one you care for!
