Men, Women Who Enjoy Life Experience Better Mental Health


According to a new Norwegian study, men and women who enjoyed life by engaging in sports, religious and cultural events were substantially less likely to experience depression and anxiety than their counterparts who avoided these activities.

As per the results of the study, men who attended cultural activities saw a nine percent bump in good mental health compared to those who did not attend any such events. Women who attended various cultural activities were three percent more likely to report good mental health. More specifically, men who attended cultural events reported back as being 14 percent more likely to be satisfied with life, 13 percent less likely to have anxiety and 12 percent less likely to be depressed.

Researchers also found that participants who participated in five or more cultural activities over a six-month period were 91 percent more likely to be in good spirits and satisfied with life.

The study’s lead author, Koenraad Cuypers, a research fellow at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology noted that those who partook or observed such activities were “... more likely to report better and health and satisfaction with life -- and lower anxiety and depression -- than those who didn't participate."

This study appeared in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.
