Hey, Girlfriend! Great Friends, Loving Life, Living Longer

Authors Diane Gage Lofgren and Margaret Bhola spent three years interviewing women about how they build and nurture their friendship circles, and exploring how and why friends contribute so richly to our lives.

Their findings and stories will help women realize that friendships are as important to well-being as good health and sound finances – and should never be left to chance.

In fact, according to studies: When women hang out with friends, their bodies release the hormone oxytocin, which combats stress and creates calm.

Having friends reduces the risk of physical health issues and allows us to more easily recover after the death of a partner.

And, women with friends are 26 percent less likely to develop dementia.
