Want to live a longer and happier life? Grab yourself some friends and be social! Studies have shown that people with a large network of friends outlive those with fewer friends by as much as 22 percent! Having that social connection helps boost your overall mood and self-esteem while keeping the feeling of depression down. Why? It’s all about support! Studies have also shown that people with a large social support can bounce back from devastating events because their friends provide the emotional support and encouragement they need. 
Keep your friends close and continue to make new ones! Join a gym or yoga class to keep your body healthy and your social circle growing!
