St. Catharines Spa Day
Posted on 10 October, 2018
Life is busy, schedule time with the ones most important in your life.
Spending time with your friends can make you more resilient, reduce stress and improve your overall mood. Unfortunately, life’s busy schedule tends to get away. Since 1994 the average amount of time spent friends per day has decreased significantly, according to a Canadian study.
Friends with Benefits
Going through a bad breakup or financial difficulty, findings from a recent study suggest that having good friends improves resilience amongst adults during adversity. “These findings reveal that best friendships are a protective mechanism supporting the development of psychological resilience in adults,” says Rebecca Graber, University of Brighton Senior Lecturer in Psychology.
An analysis of 70 studies (which compiled data from over 3.4 million people) found that loneliness has the same health implications as smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day. Lower blood pressure, improved hormone function and stronger immunity are just some of the proven benefits of spending meaningful time with friends.
In many ways, your mood reflects the mood of those around you. According to a recent study, everything from tiredness to appetite can be impacted by the friends that surround you. Luckily, the more often you see your friends, the better your mood and theirs will be!
