Parties are good for your overall health

I’m no doctor, and although I’ve seen my share of TED Talks, I’ll ask you to please take my findings with a grain of salt. But in my 32 years on this planet, one thing seems more and more evident: A happy life = better health. Now, there are a multitude of components that comprise a happy life, but the more I read the literature and watch the videos, I’m convinced that one event combines more than a couple of these components: a party. My definition of party, by the way, is two or more people coming together for the purpose of enjoying food, entertainment, and each other’s company. I’m not just talking about a 20-hour group rager, although I don’t disapprove of those kinds of get-togethers either (in moderation.)

Here’s why I believe parties are good for your health:

  1. Social: Loneliness creates mental health issues and impacts longevity. A party isn’t just about letting loose, it’s a ritual of belonging: people come together to connect with and be a part of their community.
  2. Music: Music changes your perspective and transforms your mood. It improves your blood circulation and lowers your levels of stress-related hormones, such as cortisol. Music also strengthens emotional regulation and promotes benefits in attention and memory.
  3. Dancing: Not just a great cardiovascular workout, dancing is like a visit to the gym—but fun! Dancing strengthens bones and muscles, improves balance, and even staves off illnesses. You don’t have to be a phenomenal dancer to reap the benefits, you just have to move your body to the beat!
A good party doesn’t have to incorporate all three of these components, but a great party usually does. All you need is a select soundtrack and a speaker that pumps out the playlists with enough power to do each song justice. That’s where Charge 4 enters the narrative.

JBL Charge 4 makes a good time great

Charge 4 is just the ticket for planned parties, impromptu get-togethers, and chillaxing hangouts. It pairs with your smartphone for wireless Bluetooth streaming, and can even connect to another smartphone at the same time, so you can share DJ responsibilities with a friend. A specialized driver and dual bass radiators deliver full spectrum sound that immerses everyone in the anthems that are sure to get them moving and having a great time.
Charge 4 is made to go where you go. Think about it. It’s easier to bring great audio to the people than to bring the people to great audio, which means portable speakers like Charge 4 make it easier than ever to get a great party started. Gentle handling is fine, but Charge 4 has Keith-Richards-like longevity. This road dog will survive the rough-and-tumble of an on-the-go lifestyle filled with parties in different places. It can even withstand a plunge in the pool or having a glass of water thrown in its face!
Twenty hours of playtime means this Bluetooth speaker also possesses enough stamina to go the distance at one of those non-stop ragers I mentioned earlier. And because all our music is accessed on our smartphones these days, JBL Charge 4 works double duty as a power bank, so you can connect your phone via USB and charge while your songs play.
You can sync up to 100 JBL speakers when you want to amp up the sound to epic proportions, so if any of your friends own a JBL speaker that’s Connect+ enabled, ask them to bring it along. Now you’ve got a great party on your hands!
