When the weekend comes – Brits love to belt out a tune in the shower
On a Saturday morning, Britons are most likely to be found belting out ‘Always look on the bright side of life’ in the shower. More than ever, Britons are using shower singing sessions to feel better about life and research reveals today that four in five (81%) of us enjoy singing in the shower and feel more positive afterwards.
With the Friday feeling, 20% of us will sing in the shower before we set off to work with the majority of us preferring to sing a tune on a Saturday (37%). For nearly half of us (48%) singing in the shower puts us in a good mood, and is the most cited reason for doing so. This is followed by the fact that it releases physical and mental tension for 16% of us.
According to the Sidney De Haan centre singing releases good mood hormone, endorphin, and almost half of us use singing in the shower to improve our mood with 16% saying it relieves physical and mental tension. When asked when they’re most likely to sing the morning was the most popular (28%) closely followed by before a night out.
Psychologist Donna Dawson said: “Research has shown that singing releases endorphins into the body which raises our mood as well as boosts our immune system, works the cardiovascular system, releases muscle tension, improves mental alertness and increases self-confidence. And, being in the shower while singing can enhance further all the aforementioned effects because a tiled bathroom amplifies the sound, while being on your own allows you to sing more freely.”
