 篇章結構 

  You’ve surely heard that laughter is the best medicine, but did you know that singing is just as healthy? Changes brought about by singing are immediate. __1__ (If you’re in the library or on the bus, maybe test this out later.) Once you get a chance to sing your heart out, you may notice that your stress level has dropped, your mood has improved, and you just feel better.

  There are actual scientific reasons why singing has these effects. When singing, you take more oxygen into your bloodstream, leading to better circulation. __2__ Endorphins are associated with pleasure—you also release them when you dance, laugh, or do other things that make you feel good. Similarly, oxytocin is the same hormone that is released when you hug loved ones. These hormones can actually relieve pain. The more you sing, the more these hormones are released, and the better you feel. It’s that simple!

  __3__ There are numerous other short- and long-term benefits to singing. Physically, singing provides a good workout for muscles in your face, chest, back, and abdomen. It’s also good for your lungs and helps you breathe easier. Mentally, singing has a calming and relaxing effect. This, in turn, can lead to even more physical benefits, such as lower blood pressure. Several studies have found that those who sing regularly have higher IQs and live longer. __4__ Singing brings people together, and learning songs from other cultures can help you better understand them. With so many reasons to sing, don’t be shy. Sing loud, sing proud, and sing for good health.

 

(A)  There are social advantages to singing, too.

(B)  If you don’t believe it, try belting out a tune right now!

(C)  Feeling good is great, but the positive effects of singing go well beyond a quick mood boost.

(D)  Apart from this, singing makes your body release hormones called endorphins and oxytocin.

 

 

答案:   1.    B    2.    D    3.    C    4.    A
