Your favorite band is coming to town and you are stoked! You know every word to every song on every album and you sing them so loudly without a care in the world. That makes you happy, right? Yes, of course it does. Listening to your favorite music, especially live in concert, is good for your well-being. It's better for you than 20 minutes of yoga, or even walking your dog, according to a study conducted by researchers at Goldsmiths, University of London. In fact, it could add years to your life. Researchers gave 60 participants a psychometric test before performing one of three activities: Going to a music concert, taking a yoga class and walking their dog. They found that those who went to the concert had a 21 percent boost in mood, while those who took a yoga class only saw a 10 percent increase. Those who walked their dogs only had a rise of 7 in happiness. "Our research showcases the profound impact gigs have on feelings of health, happiness and well-being – with fortnightly or regular attendance being the key," said Patrick Fagan, an expert in behavioral science and associate lecturer at Goldsmith’s University in London. It seems silly to even have an actual study to find a link between listening to music and happiness. There have been many, including a couple in 2011 that were published in Nature Neuroscience and Psychology Today. The studies found that listening to music increased dopamine levels — a chemical that enhances mood. Need to add years to your life?
