Going to Concerts May Increase Life Expectancy

posted by Kenny Young -

Via Pigeons and Planes a new study (by some wicked smahhht kids)  at Goldsmith's University London have shown that by just going to see live music at least once every two weeks, it could increase life expectancy by as much as nine years. The research is centered around a link between overall reports of well-being and longer lives, based on psychometrics (hey, I found a new word!), and heart-rate tests. Overall good vibes increased by 21% after just 20 minutes at a concert, the study found. Mental stimulation rose by 75% for concert attendees during shows. Behavioral Science expert, Patrick Fagan says: ""Our research showcases the profound impact gigs have on feelings of health, happiness and wellbeing—with fortnightly or regular attendance being the key."  

There you have it, GO TO MORE CONCERTS = LIVE FOR ANOTHER DECADE!
