Adults who have a circle of friends are healthier and can even live longer than those who don’t. Research has shown that people who are part of a strong social network have a lower risk of serious health problems, including high blood pressure, depression and being overweight, according to the Mayo Clinic. The mental health benefits of having good friends you can talk to also include:

  • Increases your sense of belonging and purpose.
  • Boosts your happiness.
  • Reduces your stress.
  • Improves your self-confidence and self-worth.
  • Helps you cope with traumas, such as divorce, serious illness, job loss or the death of a loved one.
  • Encourages you to change or avoid unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as excessive drinking or lack of exercise.
