Science says party-going can help you live longer and increases wellbeing
A recent scientific study revealed by the British telecommunications company O2 and coordinated by the expert in behavioural science and Associate Lecturer at Goldsmith’s University Patrick Fagan, has concluded that "going out partying, at least once every fortnight, could extend the life expectancy for nine more years, because of its power to positively impact the well-being of the person. "
Using heart rate and psychometric tests, Fagan and his team of scientists discovered that the measurable feelings of self-esteem of study participants, closeness to others and mental stimulation increased dramatically during concert and party attendance.
"Our research shows the profound impact that the holidays have on the feelings of health, happiness and well-being, with daily or fortnightly assistance being the key. Combining all of our findings with O2 research, we conclude that one party every fifteen days could pave the way for almost a decade more of life ", concludes Fagan.
