According to researchers, success in big events can help boost a nation's health and wellbeing. The study, which looked at data from people whose countries participate in the Eurovision song contest, found people were 4% more likely to be satisfied with their lives with every ten place increase on the final score board. Additionally, finishing near the bottom was linked to a 13% increase in life satisfaction compared to people whose countries did not participate in the contest at all.
Increasing social activity is linked to greater life satisfaction in the long term, a new study reports.
Those who have a greater sense of 'oneness' experience overall higher levels of satisfaction with life, regardless of spiritual background or belief.
