What are the benefits of friendships?

Good friends are good for your health. Friends can help you celebrate good times and provide support during bad times. Friends prevent loneliness and give you a chance to offer needed companionship, too. Friends can also:

-Increase your sense of belonging and purpose

-Boost your happiness

-Reduce stress

-Improve your self-worth

-Help you cope with traumas, such as divorce, serious illness, job loss or the death of a loved one

-Encourage you to change or avoid unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as excessive drinking or lack of exercise

10 Benefits of Friendship

1. Hanging out together- hanging out with friends may reduce the risk of loneliness

2. Learning to communicate- the more you hang out, the easier you to open up

3. Sharing ideas- your friends can often tell you how reasonable your ideas are, or what you might need to do to rework them

4. Building accountability- share your goals with your friends and they might force you to actually work towards your goals

5. Sharing stuff- when you and other build accountability back into relationships, the opportunity to lend and give freely opens up

6. Sharing friends- some friends are wonderful just because of the other friend you make through them

7. Learning new skills- as your connections grow, your friends will begin to teach you skills you never would have pursued or never known about

8. Inspiring other- as friends influence one another through their specific ideas and skills, inspiration starts to form

9. Discipling one another- once friends align at least some of their overall beliefs, they can feed off each other, teaching one another the details of life through a particular lens

10. Encouraging one another- we need the courage to follow through with what you already know/ we need the courage to get back up after you fall down
