Singing clears your head of all bad thoughts. It changes the usual thinking patterns and decreases stress. When you are singing you think about your singing, not about other things going on, which makes you calmer.
Amygdala creates negativity, while hippocampus processes positive memories. When you do not sleep, it hurts the hippocampus, making the amygdala stronger, making things more negative.
