Want to Be Happy? Go to More Concerts, According to This Study

According to an article by Consequence of Sound, which discusses an Australian study on the topics of ‘music engagement and subjective well-being,’ going to more concerts equals more happiness!  Well, that’s basically the takeaway I got.  According to the study, people who engaged with music in ways such as going to see live music or dancing reported higher subjective well-being.  Or, in layman’s terms, happiness.

Well, as a Rock Girl, I can certainly attest to the fact that you don’t need to be in Australia to enjoy the benefits of live music!  As someone who also works as a mental health nurse, I am definitely mindful of my own subjective happiness, and the boost of excitement and happiness that live music gives me.  And working in healthcare, I can promise, ‘music therapy’ really is a thing- I’ve even done music therapy groups with patients of mine!

Since I became Q103’s Rock Girl, I definitely have been enjoying my year and would report a high “subjective well-being.”  But, it may have something to do with all of the amazing shows that I’ve seen in the past year.  Just check out my photo gallery below for concert shots from Metallica, Shinedown, Bring Me The Horizon, Chris Cornell, Alice Cooper, Kings of Leon, Beartooth, Mountain Jam, and more!!! (I wonder if looking at photos of live music increases happiness too?)
