Make Friends, Be Happy

Parent Interventions

A new study done by Michigan State University has revealed that friendships can lead to happiness and healthier life. The findings based on the largest study of its kind included 323,200 participants from 99 countries. Researchers found that those who invest in friendships enjoy better physical and psychological health, particularly older adults or those with less education. The benefits are especially evident in cultures that are more individualistic, unequal, or constraining. Building friendships literally cost nothing and have health and well-being benefits, according to William Chopik, an assistant professor of psychology at MSU.
