Bay area is getting more cars and stress. Last few years, bay areas populations increase so, more cars more stress and anxiety develop recently.

The morning commute is getting tough too. Especially when people “Honk”.

As soon as I listen to my favorite song. It lowers my stress level.

I think joining Choral is a good idea for anybody, it will make their stressful life to simple good life.

points to one reason joining a choir boost mental health. The new research points to one reason joining a choir boost mental health.

The study “supports the existence of a specific ‘choir effect,'” write psychologists Julie Lynch and Charlotte Wilson of Trinity College Dublin. Their research is published in the journal Psychology of Music.

A wealth of academic research demonstrates an empirical link between choral singing and well-being. This study investigated the construct of state mindfulness as a potential generative mechanism by which this link exists. A within-subject design measured levels of state mindfulness in choristers before and after a choir rehearsal. Assessing state mindfulness before and after listening to a piece of music at home acted as the control condition. State mindfulness was assessed by the Mindful State Questionnaire (MSQ) among a sample of 83 adult amateur choristers (65 females, mean age 51.9 years). The development and psychometric properties of the MSQ are described. Paired t-tests revealed significant increases in levels of state mindfulness for both conditions (choir singing; t = 10.82, p < .001, η2 = 0.58; listening to music; t = 4.48, p < .001, η2 = 0.21), however the effect sizes and confidence intervals indicated a far greater effect for the choral singing condition.

According to their research. The research result  include, “I am aware of my feelings without getting lost in them”; “I am finding it easy to concentrate on what I am doing”; and “I am daydreaming, worrying, or otherwise distracted.”
