I really enjoy singing. I’ve recently joined a local community choir, and it not only makes you feel better about yourself, and more confident and generally happier but it also makes you feel very much part of a group and community and very valued.
I know that singing isn’t everybody’s favourite activity.Yours might be sport, dance or even walking a dog.You may prefer more individual free time leisure activities rather than being in a group. But the question is how do you feel after doing the activity? Do you feel happier and more positive about everything?
I’ve recently been watching a TV series on BBC called The Choir (Singing in The workplace).If you haven’t watched it, the programme is about setting up different choirs in different workplace environments and then they compete with each other, with a final winner at the end. However, the aim of the programme isn’t about actually winning, but the process involved.How some of the participants found that singing was great for working morale, particularly if their jobs were insecure and being threatened.

How did being part of a choir make the workers feel?
What were the positive benefits?
Why do they think that workers morale is so important?
