Share moods with friends to support them (and get support)

3 minutes read
Friendships can have a meaningful impact on both our physical and mental well-being. Studies have shown that people with friends have fewer health problems and live longer. Conversely, lack of social connections are tied with depression and higher rates of mortality. Simply put, the key for a longer, happier life is having meaningful friendships and the best way to build closeness is to start sharing moods with friends.  

3 reasons why you should start sharing moods with friends:
Build closeness with friends
It’s not about the quantity of friends but the quality of our friendships. We need close friends that are there for us through thick and thin. True emotional connection takes time and sharing moods with friends is one effective way of going beyond small talk. By being vulnerable and open about how you’re feeling gives them the opportunity to dig deeper and in turn, allows you to open up even more.
Know how to be there for your friends
We all want to be there for our friends but there's many different ways to do that and not everyone wants to be supported the same way. The kind of support a friend needs also depends on what caused that mood too. By sharing moods with friends, you can get a better understanding of how they’re feeling and about what. By being more informed, you can ask the right questions and offer the right support.
Get the right support from friends
Conversely, by sharing your own moods with friends, you give them the chance to reciprocate and be there for you when you need it most. Whether it’s advice, empathy, or encouragement that you’re looking for, your friends will be more informed on what’s the right support to offer you if you’re also sharing how you’re feeling and about what.
