Cultivate friendships! Call a friend! Schedule a get together!
Friends and friendship can:
Double your chance of surviving cancer
Help you better cope with stress
Decrease you risk of cardiovascular disease
Increase your chance of living longer by 50 percent
Help you fight a cold
Ease body aches and pains
Improve your coping skills
Boost your happiness
Let you feel connected, appreciated, and loved
Influence your eating and exercise habits (Which friend would help you improve your eating vs. encourage you to order another round of nachos? Which friend would take a walk/go to a Zumba class with you?
Studies find that being face to face with friends boosts the positive effects even more. Not having close friends can be as detrimental as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
