How HBO’s ‘Girls’ Mirrors the Spirit of Sisterhood in Nature – NYTimes.com

We’ve known for a long time that  good social support is a powerful  predictor of health and longevity, and that women, in general, seem to have the edge in this area.  Here’s an interesting article from the New York Times Science Magazine  about recent research on female friendships in primates and how they may relate to human “sisterhoods.”

Coaching Questions:

Do you have a least  three “real”  friends?  (People whom you can trust and confide in? People who would come through for you if you needed them?)

How strong is your social support system?

How happy are you with its current status? On  a scale from 1 to 10 with  1 being “It’s abysmal” to 10 being , “Couldn’t be better” what number would you give it?

If it is not a 10, what could you do now, this week, to start moving it in a positive direction? (Is there a phone call you need to make, a “catching up” date you need to get on the books?)

If so, you can make it happen. Just allow yourself to take a break and do it.  Remember, it’s ultimately one of the best things you can do for your work performance, your health and your happiness.

Have a great day!
