Benefits of Close Relationships

This picture was taken after a fun afternoon with one of my oldest friends.‚̧ I was so happy to catch up and spend time with someone near and dear to my heart. I wanted to share this picture to remind us how important it is to spend time with friends #irl.

Like so many of us, I am guilty of frequently saying "we have to catch up soon" and then never actually taking the time to get together. I wanted to post this picture to remind all of us to take the time to spend time with friends. It's so important to maintain these close bonds and we even have the science to back this up.

Studies on happiness show that close relationships, more than money or fame, are what keep people happy throughout their lives. So, tag a friend you love and go and have some fun together!
