A cord of three strands is not easily broken. Constructing healthy relationships provides the support we need to strengthen our physical and emotional health. Studies give validity to the long-held belief that people with healthy relationships are happier and healthier. Intentionally encouraging healthy relationships empower us to be who we are, and enable us to become the best versions of ourselves. Solid relationships that can withstand the test of time and challenges can help to decrease our stress, and research has shown that these relationships contribute to our overall mental and physical health.
