    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."

    But when I went to a university production of The Mikado I just about snapped because of how rude and inconsiderate the rest of the audience was :meh: Still, a very interesting article. Visiting St. Louis to get my culture on may not be a bad idea.
