I came across an interesting article today in BBC News Health that reports drumming has therapeutic benefits. Experts believe that rhythmic drumming can aid health by inducing a deep sense of relaxation, reducing stress, and lowering blood pressure. Apparently drumming is being taught to patients with problems ranging from addiction to autism, and learning difficulties to mental health issues with amazing results.
Maybe that’s why I can’t seem to give up my drum lessons. Now if only it can cure this cold I picked up in Apsen this weekend.
Drummers, at least ones that play with some frequency, also have crazy cardiovascular health. It’s a workout!
