Did you know that having friendships could help you live longer?
“Having no friends could be as deadly as smoking, researchers at Harvard University have suggested, after discovering a link between loneliness and the levels of a blood-clotting protein which can cause heart attacks and stroke.” Daily Telegraph 2016
This brings having good friends to a whole new level. We must have known that this was going to be an important topic when we put the Livestream breakfast, “Real Mates You Can Count On” on the calendar 12 months ago.
Interestingly, we nearly didn’t have it at all. One month out we had no speaker and no technical crew as both became unavailable for various reasons. What resulted was logistically the most challenging Livestream breakfast yet. But from the feedback it was one of the most well received men’s breakfasts we have ever had! We tried a new format, with a new technical crew, changed venues and even changed cities.
It certainly paid off! If you haven’t seen it, check out our website [here]
Over the next eight weeks we are going to look at the five types of friendship that our speaker Aaron Ironside talked about, plus three other friendship types that he didn’t specifically cover. These can help you examine your friendships and learn how to intentionally improve them - and maybe develop some more.
Just think… it could save your life!
So until next time.
