Whistling Could Be Key to Happiness

For many people, happiness is something that’s synonymous with the weekend. For one letter carrier in Normal, IL, it’s a regular part of his routine.

Ken Kemp’s daily work routine includes more than delivering mail. He’s regularly heard around town whistling Broadway show tunes, musical pieces from Frank Sinatra, and many more melodic sensations.

Kemp’s whistling not only brightens his own day, it also helps put a spark of pleasure in the lives of those he comes into contact with along his route.

Studies have shown that whistling not only lifts moods, it also has the potential to increase lung capacity, lower blood pressure and reduce the release of stress hormones.

While whistling seems to be a lost art, Kemp hopes to make it more mainstream again. If he continues to further his success in sparking whistling intrigue, the world will be a happier place for it.

How often do you whistle to brighten your mood?
