Since I started to play the Uke I’ve noticed a few benefits that come with it:
#1 – It helps with relaxation!
Once I reached a certain level of proficiency in playing the Uke, my practice sessions have become
one of my favorite moments throughout the day, because it takes my mind off of my everyday problems.
#2 – It increases our self-confidence and willingness to pursue new goals
Being able to play a stringed instrument is a feat in itself, and it doesn’t really matter to me when I hear people saying that the Uke is an easy instrument to learn. Once we learn to play the Uke, we feel proud of ourselves and we start believing that we can tackle any new and difficult challenges going forward.
#3 – It is a great excuse to take a break from work!
Whenever I notice that it’s been too long since the last time I’ve stood up from my desk and gave my eyes a break from staring at the computer, I always reach out to my Uke and begin playing. Many times I actually do it while standing, which improves my Uke skills and is also good for my body!
#4 – It can help us make new friends and deepen old friendships
If you begin practicing the Uke with a friend, you’ll be having a blast and will surely create many fun memories with them. There are also Ukulele jam sessions around the World, where complete strangers gather around to play their Ukes together. You’ll be amazed at all the awesome friendships that can develop because of these encounters!
Give the Uke a try and you won’t believe how much it can enrich your life and your well-being!
