It’s difficult to find a friend, but even harder to keep them throughout your life. According to statistics, we meet about 400 friends in our lifetime, but only 33 of them stay with us over time. And all of these people are important for us, to not only tell them news or to discuss the latest movies, but to spend the evening with. They affect our health and hanging out with them has a far greater effect than just having a good time.
We at Bright Side would like to tell you about the health benefits you get from hanging out with friends. You can carefully study them and share this information with your buddies the next time you hang out together. And believe us, after you read this you’ll want to do it more often.
Friends help you develop the skills of putting yourself in someone’s else shoes. You become more empathetic and you can better understand other people. And this is what makes us human. At the same time, sympathy helps you to experience less negative emotions, which is good for your psychological state.
