Singing And The Magic Happy Circle – Day 173 of The Pollyanna Plan

“If everyone started off the day singing, just think how happy they’d be.” – Lauren Myracle

This morning, as I designed and made another of my handmade pieces, I had the TV on and a music channel playing. It just so happened that this particular channel was playing ALL my favourite songs one after the other. Result!

I sang along while I worked and I realised how much joy I get from singing. I used to sing ALL the time – in the shower, in the car, as I was going about daily tasks – but through the struggle and dark times of living with a chronic illness, as my energy and vitality depleted, so did my desire to sing.

As I sat on my own at the dining room table this morning, pinning and stitching, I began to sing first one song, and then another. And with each song I sang, the happier I felt. I honestly had so much fun and I’ve been bobbing around on cloud 9 for the rest of the day.

The thing I’ve come to realise, as I type this post, is that not only was I happy because I was singing, but I was also singing because I was (and still am) happy. It’s like a magic happy circle!

You should try it sometime! 🙂

Day 173, Reason 173: Today I am  so happy and grateful that The Pollyanna Plan has returned to me my love of singing.

192 reasons to feel glad/happy/joyful to find

And…

£38.68 to raise for Save the Children – So nearly there to reach my target to raise £365 for 365 days of finding 365 reasons to feel glad/happy/joyful!

  1. Just like exercise, singing release endorphins. It’s also an aerobic activity, meaning it gets more oxygen into the blood for better circulation, which tends to promote a good mood. And singing necessitates deep breathing, another anxiety reducer.
    The positivity goes beyond physical basis too – singing makes you feel happy for different reasons these are just the physical parallels I drew! ^^^ Enjoy! ‘Whistle whilst you work!’ – I think Disney knew!
