Friendshipable
31: Happiness
Show Notes

From Project BFF HQ, Terri and Manya riff about happiness and friendship. Human beings are wired to care about relationships.  And quality of friends counts more than quantity. Friends prevent isolation and loneliness and give you a chance to offer needed companionship, too. Friends can also:

·      Increase your sense of belonging and purpose

·      Boost your happiness and reduce your stress

·      Improve your self-confidence and self-worth

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