Stressful Relationships May Raise Risk of Death

A new study finds that dealing with stressful relationships can actually lead to an early death. According to the report in Relevant Magazine, researchers at the University of Copenhagen examined nearly 10,000 adults and found that those who had constant conflicts with their families, friends or partners doubled the risk of dying and those who feuded with neighbors triple the risk. However the study authors emphasize that they aren’t advocating for social isolation. They say that is bad for us as well. They say the study does indicate the importance of focusing the positive, rather than the negative, in relationships.
