It’s no secret that men and women are wired differently, especially when it comes to emotions and stress. Simply said, men tend to ignore stress and bottle up their emotions, while women seek out friendships with other women as a way of dealing with stress – we need to connect and talk about it! A Huffington Post article sites compelling studies why women need friendships, such as the more friends women have, the less likely they are to develop physical impairments as they age. Studies also showed that not having friends or confidants is as detrimental to a woman’s health as being overweight or smoking cigarettes. Today we discuss the importance of female friendships, and if a hectic schedule has kept you from your girlfriends, take stock and reconnect! Your mind and body will thank you!
