Listening to Music 30 Minutes a Day Lowers Rates of Depression & Anxiety

A study done by University College of London and Bloomberg Philanthropies shows listening to music has a massive impact on mental health.

The COVID-19 Social Study, led by Dr. Daisy Fancourt of the University College of London, has tracked arts participation and mental health in a cohort of 72,000 UK adults aged 18 and older on a weekly basis since March. The data suggests that people who have spent 30 minutes or more each day during the pandemic on arts activities like reading for pleasure, listening to music, or engaging in a creative hobby have lower reported rates of depression and anxiety and greater life satisfaction.
