“There’s nothing better than a friend unless it is a friend with chocolate.” ~Unknown Good friendships are good for your health (even with a little chocolate added). Friends can help us process stress, lift our spirits, make us laugh, increase our sense of belonging, boost our confidence & self-worth, help us deal with grief and trauma, and encourage us to chase our dreams and avoid unhealthy decisions. This is why friendships are a MUST in self-care. If you’ve allowed your life to get so busy that you’re neglecting those core friendships, it’s time to re-prioritize your time. Text a friend today and tell them that you’re thankful for them! #friendship #friendships #selfcare #selfcaresunday #friends #selfcarethreads #msmedicine
