Friendships are a relationship unto their own and can be the trickiest to navigate. There is no ‘handbook’ to maintaining a healthy friendship or societal ‘do’s and don’ts’, like there may be for your partner or family.

Friendships are also essential when it comes to having fun, providing distraction and problem solving. Next time you’re seeing a close friend, try an activity where you can forget the rigours of day to day life and relax.

Reconnecting and providing irreplaceable support and advice is the bread that holds a friendship together.
