The value of good friends is hard to overem­pha­size. It sug­gests that peo­ple with friends to rely on dur­ing stress­ful times ex­pe­ri­ence health­ier, more suc­cess­ful and live longer. A good friend­ship lessens the neg­a­tive ef­fects of high stress level. It is very sup­port­ive to­wards a mean­ing­ful re­la­tion­ship at home and work. Take time to take good care of your­self. Eat a bal­anced diet, ex­er­cise and get plenty of rest. Take time to re­lax with friends and fam­ily. A high rate of change of­ten means ex­tra stress and strain on your body.
