Drumming for fun
Updated: Jan 1, 2019
I happened upon an article by Dr. Christiane Northrup entitled "10 Health Reasons to Start Drumming" and it immediately peaked my interest. I have had two wonderful experiences with drumming in my adulthood and I have since discovered the therapeutic benefits. Some of benefits Dr. Northrup and others site; drumming makes you happy, induces deep relaxation, helps with chronic pain, boosts your immune system, creates a sense of connectedness, aligns your body and mind, provides access to a higher power, releases negative feelings, puts you in the present moment, and stimulates creative expression and personal transformation.
Overall, Drumming IS FUN! It is a little challenging at first but it invokes the playfulness of childhood and we can all use more of that!
