A new study has found that going to concerts frequently can increase your lifespan. Yes, you read that right. Listening to live music can help you live longer.
The report by O2 and Goldsmith’s University Associate Lecturer Patrick Fagan, who specializes in behavioural science, concluded that going to a gig for even just 20 minutes can increase your feeling of well-being about 21%. Additionally, a direct link between “high levels of well-being [and] a lifespan increase of nine years” suggests that going to concerts can make you live at least nine years longer.
