Benefits of Talking on the Phone

A Simple Way to Stop Stress Dead in Its Tracks

Woman at home talking on the phone

Between social media, email, and texting, it's easy to go without actually talking to your closest friends. If you find yourself stressed out during your day, whether it be work-, family-, or life-related, there's no reason you have to deal with it on your own. Picking up the phone and reaching out to someone you trust is one of the easiest and most effective ways to make you feel better.

The next time you're stressed, take a few minutes to call a friend or family member with a caring ear. Don't text them. Don't email them. Call them. Talking through your worries with someone close will ease your mind and can prevent you from turning to stress-induced habits like overeating. Although turning to our loved ones in a time of need can make all the difference, it's also great to connect and laugh with friends even on days when you're feeling happy and relaxed.
