Friend­ship­comes to the Fore

Be­cause itʼs im­por­tant.

Woman's Era - - Long Story - By C. K. Subra­ma­niam

t's time to keep the mind-body con­nec­tion – the re­la­tion­ship be­tween stress and dis­ease. Among other things, one of the best things that a man could do for his health is to be mar­ried to a woman whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health is to nur­ture her re­la­tion­ships with friends but it is a se­ri­ous thought.

Women con­nect with each other dif­fer­ently and pro­vide sup­port sys­tems that help each other to deal with stress and dif­fi­cult life ex­pe­ri­ences. Phys­i­cally this qual­ity “girl­friend time" helps us to cre­ate more sero­tonin – a neu­ro­trans­mit­ter that helps com­bat de­pres­sion and can cre­ate a gen­eral feel­ing of well be­ing. Women share feel­ings whereas men of­ten form re­la­tion­ships around ac­tiv­i­ties. They rarely sit down with a buddy and talk about how they feel about cer­tain things or how their per­sonal lives are go­ing. Jobs? Yes. Sports? Yes. Cars? Yes. Fish­ing, hunt­ing, golf? Yes. But their feel­ings? Rarely. Women do it all of the time. We share from our souls with our sis­ters, and ev­i­dently that is very good for our health. A man feels that spend­ing time with a friend is just as sim­ple and im­por­tant to our gen­eral health as jog­ging or work­ing out at a gym.

There's a ten­dency to think that when we are "ex­er­cis­ing" we are do­ing some­thing good for our bod­ies, but when we are hang­ing out with friends, we are wast­ing our time and should be more pro­duc­tively en­gaged – not true. In fact, he said that fail­ure to cre­ate and main­tain qual­ity per­sonal re­la­tion­ships with other hu­mans is as dan­ger­ous to our phys­i­cal health as smok­ing! So ev­ery time you hang out with a gal pal, just pat your­self on the back and con­grat­u­late your­self for do­ing some­thing good for your health! We are in­deed very, very lucky. So let's toast to our friends to get rid of stress. Ev­i­dently it's very good for our health.

Youth to­day are be­com­ing ex­ceed­ingly greedy and to­tally self­ish, har­bour­ing feel­ings of ha­tred and jeal­ousy. Their life­style of en­joy­ing worldly and car­nal plea­sures will re­sult in dis­eases. In an­cient times, youth and saints alike, led a life of sac­ri­fice and a sense of con­trol and en­joyed peace and joy. All of us are blessed with the wealth of love from the mo­ment of our birth. In this field of worldly ac­tiv­ity, it is very dif­fi­cult to safe­guard the trea­sure of love. There­fore, we need to find a faith­ful friend to hand it over.

WOMEN CON­NECT WITH EACH OTHER DIF­FER­ENTLY AND PRO­VIDE SUP­PORT SYS­TEMS THAT HELP EACH OTHER TO DEAL WITH STRESS AND DIF­FI­CULT LIFE EX­PE­RI­ENCES. PHYS­I­CALLY THIS QUAL­ITY “GIRL­FRIEND TIME" HELPS US TO CRE­ATE MORE SERO­TONIN
