Want to boost your happiness and energy levels? Switch on the radio. A recent UK study called “Media and the Mood of the Nation” polled more than a thousand people by smartphone and asked them to record what media they were consuming, and rate their mood and energy levels while doing so.

The study found that listening to the radio can double your happiness and triple your energy levels. When compared to TV and the internet radio gives up to twice the happiness and four times the perceived energy. No big surprise. Radio can keep you company wherever you go while TV and Internet pretty well limit your ability to move.

Next time you’re bursting for a boost – between Boosts – turn on the radio.
