Wednesday, July 30 is International Friendship Day. I can't resist a good list or an excuse to celebrate. So I was curious: Based on mindfulness and the psychology of flourishing, what would be my top five ideas for celebrating friendship? We all have so much to gain if we take a few moments out of our busy day and remind ourselves how much our friendships mean to us.
Why bother? Because every one of these exercises is so good for your well-being and that of your friends. How far this ripple effect continues could surprise you. It can even be good for people you may never meet!
