Ageing and changing dynamics of friendship

ID 4“Count your age by friends, not years” – John Lennon

Studies have suggested that friendships contribute to social, emotional, physical health and longevity of a person, possibly because friendship and happiness are integrally linked to/ associated with each other. Informal social activities are inherent in promoting well-being in old age, irrespective of whether they are performed with friends or family members.
