Social networks make you healthier

A secure job has its merits. But working alongside someone you consider a friend could help you live longer.

A new study by researchers at Tel Aviv University found that em­­ployees with strong social networks on the job actually lived longer than those “working in a very unfriendly and nonsupportive environment.”

When employees are happy, the study showed, they show up more often, are happier and friendlier, and more productive. Their bodies release hormones that lead to good health.

Tip: Create more opportunities to connect with the people you work with through potlucks, picnics or small coffee breaks.
