Got culture? Museums, theaters and concert halls may be the ticket to a happy, healthy life Cultural activities: People who participate in cultural activity are happier and healthier - latimes.com "The secret to a healthy, happy life may be found at an art gallery, movie theater or concert hall. (It might even be in church, a baseball stadium or gym.) At least if you live in Norway. "A study of more than 50,000 Norwegian men and women found that those involved in cultural activities -- either receptive activities like attending a concert or a baseball game or creative ones like playing in a band or working out -- were more likely to be satisfied with their lives and to say they were in good health. They were also less likely to experience anxiety or depression." By Karen Kaplan, Los Angeles Times/For the Booster Shots blog May 24, 2011, 6:00 a.m.
