It's National Siblings Day!
Happy #NationalSiblingsDay to the BEST big brother this little brat could ever wish for! ♥️ #RichardKim
Aside from being a fun buddy or even driving us crazy at times, there are great mental and physical benefits of having a sibling:
Keeps us physically fit - Research shows that friends & family have the largest impact on how healthy our lifestyles are.
Makes us happier - A sibling bond means a lifetime of emotional support & a close friendship. Holding onto this tight relationship with your sibling can lead to more happiness later in life.
May make us more selfless - Research suggests that having a quality relationship with a brother or sister may promote altruism in teens.
Possibly help us live longer - Caring about our family & friends can inspire us to take better care of ourselves. So, keeping strong social ties & connections with our siblings could help us live a longer, happier, and healthier life!
