Making promises to do better at so many things at once can become so overwhelming that we just give up and don't accomplish anything. It is so much better to choose something small and reach that goal before tackling another one. So much easier said than done even if it is small...right? I hear you.
I think I might just have an idea of how you could accomplish several on my list with just one change....join a choir. Yes, join a choir. You will be exercising your mind, heart and lungs ( a lot like yoga and meditation), drinking more water out of necessity, reading new literature in a foreign language (music is foreign yet universal), spending quality time with family if you bring them along to sing with you, meeting new friends and getting to know old friends better, developing a sense of community, and bringing some sort of balance to your life.
Music can do these and so much more for you. Consider your role in the singing community of your town. Bellingham Music Enrichment Project has three choirs for you to consider joining, along with choir festivals and choral reading sessions in the planning stages.

Stay Calm and Sing All Day
