Boo­gie nights


Watch­ing live mu­sic is bet­ter for your well­be­ing than yoga. Patrick Fagan, an ex­pert in be­havioural sci­ence and as­so­ci­ate lec­turer at Goldsmith’s Univer­sity in Lon­don, fit­ted vol­un­teers with heart rate mon­i­tors, then sent them to a Paloma Faith gig, a yoga ses­sion or for a walk with their dog. Psy­cho­me­t­ric tests car­ried out be­fore and af­ter the ac­tiv­i­ties – all of which are known stress-busters – found those who en­joyed 20 min­utes of a Paloma Faith gig had a higher level of well­ness than other par­tic­i­pants.
