If I’m being honest, I haven’t been to a concert in a really long time. Not only do I hold the unpopular opinion that big stadium concerts aren’t that great (sorry!), but I also never seem to have the time or money. But that might change in 2019, because I just found out that going to a “gig” can improve you’re well being and help you live longer, according to a study.
The scientific study by O2 and Patrick Fagan, expert in behavioural science and Associate Lecturer at Goldsmith’s University, finds that just 20 minutes of gig-time results in a significant 21% increase in feelings of wellbeing.
“Added to this, additional scholarly research directly links high levels of wellbeing with a lifespan increase of nine years pointing to a direct link between gig-going and longevity.”
So you don’t have to go to a huge concert to get the benefits, just good old live music will do the trick, do you plan on seeing more live music this year?
