Concert-going produces happier living, says research
Unsurprisingly, research reveals that regular concert-going produces happier living.
Not that we needed validation, but the truth is out and a study conducted by Deakin University is in favour of concert-going.
Naturally every concert-goer is highly aware of the truth behind this revelation.
There is no greater joy than going to the music event of your choice, flanked by your crew as you dance the night away.
The combination of music, dancing and friendship along with making new friends and hearing new music results in high doses of euphoria, carrying you through the next work week, only to be replenished at the next dance.
Finally this study has proven what we’ve intrinsically known and felt for centuries.
Concert yourself to happiness
The study conducted by researchers from Victoria’s Deakin University surveyed 1000 Australians and found that those who regularly attended any variety of a musical experience reported higher levels of satisfaction in their lives.
Whether it be Big Day Out or just a casual night out dancing, musical interactions increases your joy.
Specifically, the study found the communal aspect of listening to live music to be the most important part, as listening to music alone did not cause the effect on “social wellbeing.”
It’s the same concept as that quote from ‘Into The Wild’: “Happiness is only real when shared.”
We experience a lot of joy when we share experiences with others, and seeing as music is the universal language it is only fitting that going to music concerts will result in maximum happiness overall in life.
Give dance a chance and go test this theory that concert-going produces happier living.
