New Study Reveals Attending (K-pop) Concerts Helps You Live Longer
Are you one of those die-hard K-pop fans who always attend your favorite K-idols’ live concerts and events?
Good news. You are going to live longer, that’s what the latest academic research believes.
Going for live music events regularly is profoundly discovered to improve one’s life quality, according to the latest research led by Associate Lecturer of Goldsmith University Patrick Fagan, together with O2, one of the top music venue companies in the UK.
The finding states that going for a concert of 20 minutes can already led to a “21 percent increase in that feeling of well-being.” It also “directly links high levels of well-being with a lifespan increase of nine years”, highlighting a conclusive link between concert-goers and their lifespan. The research was conducted on participants with other activities like doing yoga and dog walking.
Fagan explained further, “Our research showcases the profound impact gigs have on feelings of health, happiness and well-being – with fortnightly or regular attendance being the key.”
On the evaluation of attending concerts, the study published that there was a 25 percent increase in feelings of self-worth and closeness to others, including mental stimulation with a 75 percent increase. Overall, music is highly linked to the happiness level for all the test subjects.
Music can reduce anxiety, blood pressure, and stress, especially to children who take academic examinations in school, possibly with the aid of assignment writing services Australia. It has been already theorized with The Mozart Effect that listening to music does make students smarter.
To back the latest research further, a Finnish study in 2013 concluded that “children who took part in singing classes had higher satisfaction rates at school”, while an article was published by University of Missouri in The Journal of Positive Psychology, stating that happy music provided “significantly positive” health effects.
Together with the past research reports and his latest study, Fagan concluded that the prescription of going for live gigs fortnightly can possibly expand one’s lifespan for up to 10 years.
