Today is #FriendlyFriday
Reset, Reconnect, and Recharge today by showing others you care. Empathy, respect for others, kindness and cooperation are qualities linked to resilience. When you show someone that you care about them, it can help them and you feel connected to a social support system. Social support is exceptionally important for maintaining good physical and mental health. Psychological Medicine suggests that support derived from friendship is important in promoting mental health resilience in adolescence and adulthood. The stronger your friendships are, the greater your resilience will be in difficult times. When it comes to friendships, it’s not about quantity, it’s about quality. Just one good friend can make all the difference when going through a tough time. Explore 50 ways you can practice kindness and show people you care on #FriendlyFriday.
