Patrick Fagan of Goldsmith University who is a behavioral science expert has conducted research connecting concerts and life expectancy.
In a recently released press release, they say that people who attend a concert at least once every two weeks could extend their life by about nine years.
The research is based off on psychometric and heart-rate tests which influence the well-being of a person based on activity.
But aside from physical activity, going to a concert increase persons well being by 21% after just 20 minutes at a concert according to the research. That includes a 25% boost in feelings of self-worth as well as a 25% increase in closeness to others.
“Our research showcases the profound impact gigs have on feelings of health, happiness and wellbeing–with fortnightly or regular attendance being the key,”
“Combining all of our findings with O2’s research, we arrive at a prescription of a gig a fortnight which could pave the way for almost a decade more years of life.”
There are so many concerts coming up to attend, so make sure you get your tickets to POWERHOUSE NOW!!
