Weekly Clinical Service Dose: Cultivate friendships! It will help improve your health!

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
  • Energize you
  • Make you laugh
  • Boost your happiness
  • Let you feel connected, appreciated, and loved
  • Influence you’re eating and exercise habits

Think of which friend:

Would help you improve your eating vs. encourage you to order another round of nachos?

Would take a walk or go to a Zumba class with you?

Studies find that being face to face with friends creates positive effects that help reduce stress, depression and so much more.
