Misc Tip Going through a tough time? Don’t hide out. The very presence of a friend or loved one helps lower the stress of a difficult situation.
Hold your loved ones closer this Valentine’s Day — even if you’re having a bad day. Research shows that having a loved one in the same room as you (and, yes, pets count!) can help neutralize stress. Knowing you have someone to help you weather the tough times can take the sting out of a difficult situation. Loneliness, on the other hand, can be as bad for your health as smoking or stress. Because sadness and happiness are both contagious, try to seek out friends who will cheer you up. Helping others can also help your mood. Volunteering or assisting people in need gives us a sense of purpose and allows us to focus on others’ problems instead of our own.
