I’m not sure when this started but I seem to hum all the time. I didn’t realize it until Sanj pointed it out to me. It’s something that apparently is annoying to him as it occurs in his daily work environment and it’s something he realized he finds irritating. So … coming home to me humming, often nonsensical stuff (sometimes even the Barney theme song) does not create a relaxing environment. Haha. OK, I was not gifted with a pleasant voice. I can’t sing. I wish I could as it is very relaxing to me but God blessed me with a high pitched annoying voice. I’m also hyper by nature. So humming isn’t something I actually control, it just happens. Often while I am humming and catch Sanj’s eye, with his cute eyebrow raised… lolol he never says anything but it is a look of,
OK, so often thorough my day I will come across stuff (guiltily usually on Huffington Post from Facebook)… and this grabbed my attention… Did you know that humming is GOOD FOR YOU?!!!
So, to my dear husband, I hum for you! It is a way that I am taking care of me… so you won’t be a widow (or is it widower). You won’t be allow to deal with your six sons and the crazy phases they are growing through!!!!
These are a few of the benefits of humming that I am able to relate to. 🙂
1: Grounds and brings you back to your centre. I personally find it helps settle the feeling of being restless or scattered on the inside.
2: Promotes clarity of thinking by refreshing your mind. You can physically feel the vibration of the “hum” clear out the cob webs.
3: Has a very relaxing and soothing effect on your neck, face, head and shoulder muscles, which helps dissolve stress.
4: Humming reduces the number of thoughts that fill your head. When you are humming there is little room for over thinking.
5: Helps dissolve unproductive thinking. If you are having a bout of negativity, jump straight into a few rounds of “hmmmm” and notice a shift in your thinking.
6: Calms your nervous system as it activates the parasympathetic nervous system.
7: Improves sinusitis. The vibration helps shifts and clears pathways and blockages. (Sanj, maybe you should give it a try… for your reoccurring sinusitis).
8: Lowers blood pressure.
