Yes it’s true. A new study by Australia’s Deakin University show that habitual music engagement is better for our overall well-being.

The study, which was conducted on 1,000 people, found that participants who attend communal music events reported higher levels of satisfaction with their lives.

According to the report, “engaging with music by dancing or attending musical events was associated with higher [subjective well-being] than for those who did not engage with music in these forms.”

What’s more, the communal aspect of live music impacts greatly on the level of happiness.

The study emphasises on the importance of engaging music in the company of others, as listening to music in alone did not have the same effect on the social well-being.

The social interaction offers people a sense of purpose and belonging, in that singing has been noted as a mode for bringing people together.

Furthermore, the subjects who danced at communal events scored higher on satisfaction in regards to health, achieving in life, relationships, and community connection than those who did not.

And what’s better, we might even be able to say goodbye to those seemingly endless cardio sessions, as it was also found that the health satisfaction of those who danced was significantly higher than those who didn’t.

So if you’re still contemplating about getting that concert ticket, don’t overthink it. Consider it as an investment for your mind and body.
