Research Finds Four Reasons To Live By (And Use) Pour Judgement

By  |  0 Comments

It turns out that it’s actually a good thing to be a bar regular.

Life is usually all about compromises. The stuff you want to do isn’t good for you, while the stuff that’s supposed to be good for you…well, it sucks. When you think “I’d like the steak” someone comes along and says “Why don’t you steam some broccoli and run five miles instead? It’ll be good for you.”

So when what you actually desire¬†and what’s good for you somehow overlap, it’s a time for rejoicing. This is just such a time.

The Telegraph reports that researchers at Oxford University have determined that there are real and tangible benefits to having a neighborhood¬†bar, which, in Newport, Pour Judgement is a perfect example of. It’s small, cozy and the bartenders know you well enough to give you a hard time just at that moment when you’re trying to impress someone.

1. You’ll Be “Significantly” Happier

And after all, isn’t happiness what makes life worthwhile? The pursuit of happiness is one of the great freedoms our country was founded upon.

2. You’ll Have More Friends

The study was conducted in pubs in Oxfordshire, and it also found pubs were very important in providing a place where people could meet and make friends.

“Given the increasing tendency for our social life to be online rather than face-to-face, having relaxed accessible venues where people can meet old friends and make new ones becomes ever more necessary.”

…and no one makes friends watching Netflix.

3. You’ll Have Better Life Satisfaction

Professor Robin Dunbar of Oxford University, said: “Friendship and community are probably the two most important factors influencing our health and wellbeing.

“Making and maintaining friendships, however, is something that has to be done face-to-face. The digital world is simply no substitute.

4. You’ll Be Less Likely To Drink To Excess
