The Benefits of Sharing

A problem shared is a problem halved

It’s true to say a problem shared really is a problem halved.

A recent survey by RESCUE® revealed that 79% of people felt happier after catching up and seeking advice from a friend. 68% also said that speaking with friends was of paramount importance to begin solving an issue, and ¾ of the population said the act of reminiscing with friends was a great way to relive stress and they felt happier from doing so.

Even with today’s world being much more connected via technology and social media than ever before, people still preferred to have face-to-face contact with their friends (75%) to talk about concerns.

There’s nothing more cathartic than talking things through so why not take a #rescuemoment and get that overdue catch-up in the diary. Sharing is caring after all.
