Why Friendship may Improve Healthy Heart? - Heart 7

Sunday, May 17, 2020
Building a friendship (source: Exposure)

We all know that good friendship or socializing contributes to our mental health as mentioned in many literatures.

Several sources noticed about significant relationship between socializing and improvement of our physical health.

Some benefits of good quality friendship are:
- increase memory
- sharpen cognitive abilities
- not feel lonely
- improve happiness
- likely to live longer

The two specific advantages, make me surprising about socializing that:
- friendship through technology (social media) as important as in person.
- may reduce cardiovascular diseases.

The connections between friendship and heart diseases are following:
- no friendship means live lonely
- loneliness causes stress
- stress increases hormone cortisol production.

Positive friendship either in person or online or both means lower hormone cortisol production, lower blood pressure, lower damaging to our blood vessels, hence, improve our healthy heart.

Hope, our friendship may lead to healthy live, both mentally and physically even through online (blogging) only.

  5. Friends are good to have. I do not have friends to do regular things with. We just all sorta do our own things now. Its usually just me and my husband but we make friends all the time. But yes, I would have better self esteem and self awareness if I had closer girl friends to
    do things with.
    Great post

  6. This makes a lot of sense... I am intrigued about the friendship via blogging/internet verses in person contact.
