How Friendship Improves Your Health

The importance of close friendships in our lives goes without saying, but they can also provide a number of health benefits.

We celebrate with our friends during good times and lean on them during the bad times. Seeking out the comfort of a close friend can improve our emotional well-being and help reduce stress. Those valued long term friendships can add years to our lives as well. One study found people with large friend groups had a 22% better chance of living throughout the 10 year study than those with a smaller friend group. Next time you are with your best friend, let them know how much you appreciate them. It will make the both of you feel great.
