3 Reasons to Appreciate Your Friends This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romance, roses and chocolate from your crush – it’s also a day to show love to your girlfriends, who are there for you through thick and thin.

According to the Mayo Clinic, friends increase each others’ self-worth, confidence, joy, happiness, discipline, sense of belonging…the list of benefits goes on and on.

In case you’ve forgotten how much your girlfriends do for you (and how much you mean to them!), we’ve come up with a short list of why they make for the loveliest valentine this year!

They keep you on track

Maintaining a healthy work-life balance can be hard for professional women, but friends can help keep you grounded, focused and balanced along the way. Having a close-knit group of friends can help you stick to healthy eating habits, exercise goals and professional ambitions, as well. Navigating life’s trickiest paths becomes a bit easier just knowing you have the support of your tribe.

They know how to ‘carpe diem’

Girls just want to have fun, right? Right! There is just something so energizing about getting together – and that’s because your squad is a force! From girl’s night in to girl’s night out, you can count on your girlfriends to make any gathering an adventure not soon forgotten.
