Women’s Friendship Day

Sunday, September 16th

 

National Women’s Friendship Day is a day set aside to remember the special women in our lives, to acknowledge and celebrate the treasures we call friends. National Women’s Friendship Day is celebrated yearly on the third Sunday in September.

The celebration is furthermore honored by the governors of many states who were among the first to make Governor’s Proclamations endorsing National Women’s Friendship Day. We encourage all women to celebrate Women’s Friendship Day. Take time out to take your best friend out. Enjoy the time with your women friends and let them know how much they mean to you. If it has been long since you caught up with your girl friends it is time that you do it.

Celebrate Women’s Friendship Day and rejuvenate the spirit of friendship once again. Friendship sees no age, no caste and no bar. It happens anywhere any time. You can meet a friend anywhere. But you will only have to be careful that you make the right kind of friends. Women are always known to be stronger when it comes to bonding. But if you haven’t spoken to your best friend for long do it right now.

On this occasion of Women’s Friendship Day give your girlfriends a special time. There are so several things that you can do to make your friend feel special. You can just call a friend and tell her that you are celebrating Women’s Friendship Day. If you have been thinking too hard about what to do on Women’s Friendship Day then let us give you ideas.

“All women find strength, comfort and inspiration from their girlfriends in a time of increasing demands,

we want to encourage women to take the time to nurture and celebrate these important relationships.”

In a landmark study by UCLA suggests that friendships between women are special. They shape who we are and who we are yet to be. They soothe our tumultuous inner world, fill the emotional gaps in our marriage, and help us remember who we really are. But they may do even more. Scientists now suspect that hanging out with our friends can actually counteract the kind of stomach-quivering stress most of us experience on a daily basis.

“Until this study was published, scientists generally believed that when people experience stress, they trigger a hormonal cascade that revs the body to either stand and fight or flee as fast as possible,” explains Laura Cousino Klein, PhD, now an assistant professor of biobehavioral health at Pennsylvania State University in State College and one of the study’s authors. It’s an ancient survival mechanism left over from the time we were chased across the planet by saber-toothed tigers. Now the researchers suspect that women have a larger behavioral repertoire than just “fight or flight”.

“In fact”, says Dr.Klein, “it seems that when the hormone oxytocin is released as part of the stress response in a woman, it buffers the fight or flight” response and encourages her to tend children and gather with other women instead. When she actually engages in this tending or befriending, studies suggest that more oxytocin is released, which further counters stress and produces a calming effect. This calming response does not occur in men, says Dr. Klein, because testosterone- which men produce in high levels when they’re under stress- seems to reduce the effects of oxytocin. Estrogen, she adds, seems to enhance it. (Yay – finally estrogen is a good thing.) – excerpt @ By Sumner M. Davenport
