Study finds going to gigs makes you live longer

A recent study has found regularly hitting gigs is good for your health... Not that we needed anymore encouragement, but hey, good news is good news. 

Goldsmith’s University Associate Lecturer Patrick Fagan (behavioural science specialist) lead the findings. His report states just vibing at a gig for 20 minutes can result in a 21% increase in your well-being. And further research finds a direct correlation between high levels of well-being and longer life expectancy. 

So, hitting gigs is making you live longer. 

AND the study also found people who are at a gig at least once a fortnight are most likely to rate their “happiness, contentment, productivity and self-esteem at the highest level”.

Only all the good feelings. 

So, what gig are we doing next?
