Here is a good news to all the men out there. According to a new research, it is found that in order to stay healthy, we men need to get drunk with our friends twice a week.
The study was conducted by University of Oxford and in their research, going out for a few pints isn’t just fun, it’s downright essential. In fact, according to this report, we dudes have to go out twice a week by necessity to stay healthy. The study was conducted by Robin Dunbar, a psychologist and director of Oxford University’s social and evolutionary neuroscience research group. According his findings, men must physically meet with four friends, two times a week, in order to reap the benefits of male friendship. By doing so these strong male friendships include a stronger immune system, the release of endorphins, an overall decrease in anxiety levels, and (apparently) even higher levels of generosity.
“Bonds can be formed through a range of activities from team sports to male banter — or simply having a pint with your pals on a Friday night,” Dunbar states in the report.
The same stusy also reveales that 1 in 3 men in UK can’t find the time to meet with friends once a week, and 40% of men are only able to make a “guys’ night” a weekly affair.
