How to Add 7 Years To Your Life

Some people brag about spending millions of dollars on drugs and technology to extend their life – despite little evidence that those efforts work. Us? We prefer something simpler, cheaper, and more effective.

It turns out, a little more time in the friend zone is what you need if you want to live longer. A review of 148 studies found that people with strong social relationships are associated with living up to 7 years longer.

You want our advice? Go call, text, or email a friend now. Set a time to grab a coffee or a meal, or just go for a walk or do a workout. The time together might help you live longer, and those relationships will make the days you spend more enjoyable.
