Having strong relationships can help reduce anxiety and depression and increase your overall wellness. This is because when we have the support of people we love, it can inspire us to be more successful, happier and help us to thrive. Check out the following great tips to help you attract more friendships and strengthen the ones that you already have.
1. Be Honest
I don’t know about you, but one of the most important qualities I look for in a friend is honesty. If you don’t have a friend who is genuine, then what is the point of the friendship? I find that people who are honest are the people I have remained friends with the longest and if ever we fight, we can reconcile because we tell each other how we really feel. It’s always a great rule of thumb to live by in accordance with your values too. Not only can this help you to find real friends and people you are more compatible with, but it can make you a more confident, healthy individual.
2. Have Good Manners
Having good manners can take you a long way. It shows that you are polite and thoughtful. So say “please” and “thank you” and express your gratitude for others. This help people to feel appreciated and helps them to gravitate toward you.
3. Focus On Others
It can be difficult to get out of our heads when we are in turmoil, but this may be the best thing for our friendships and our health. Remember, you are not the only person in existence and other people are fighting their own battles. So be giving and listen to what other people are saying with your heart. Focus on how you can help to solve other people’s problems and you may notice that your own worries may feel smaller and smaller.
