Article: Study claims that attending concerts can add nine years to your life

Every time one of these articles comes out, I’m usually tagged on social media (hi Brooke!).  I love it.  And I hope it’s true.  😊

"Concerts can be daunting as you get older, what with late start times, a slew of opening acts, and the prospect of standing next to tall, sweaty people for several hours. A new study, however, claims that the effort’s worth it.

Conducted by O2 and behavioral science expert Patrick Fagan and reported by NME, the study finds that regular concert attendance can increase one’s lifespan by up to nine years. The logic here is that live music increases feelings of self-worth, closeness to others, and, especially, mental stimulation, all of which contribute to one’s sense of well-being. According to the study, there’s a ‘positive correlation between regularity of gig attendance and well-being,’ and ‘additional scholarly research directly links high levels of wellbeing with a lifespan increase of nine years.’"
