According To A Study Having A Sister Makes You Happier And More Optimistic



Having a sister is sometimes like living with a bomb that always has the potential to go off at any given notice.

One of the best things that can happen in your life is having a sister. Definitely, your sister can make your life more bearable, more positive and happy. Plus, all that shopping together and going on vacations or a trip is always more fun when you are together. Remember all that practice she had to perform on your face in order to become close to a professional makeup artist? But not only that but all the advice she gave you growing up. The conversations about your relationships, the boy crushes, and all your friends. Also, for the guys, the sisters are great advisors about the dating and trying to find the perfect present for the girlfriend.

And then again there are those days that you can stop fighting or when suddenly she becomes annoying and frustrating.
However, according to a study, you should be more grateful having a sister and forgive her flaws even though she can become really irritating. A research team at De Montfort University in Leicester and Ulster University reveals that having a sister overall makes you happier and more optimistic.


Having at least one girl in the family does wonders for your emotional well-being, according to psychologists.
The researchers have interviewed 571 people aged between 17 and 25, which led to the conclusion that people with sisters are more likely to have a balanced lifestyle.
Also, they make families draw together and become closer, by encouraging people to talk about their emotions.

People with sisters often have a good mental health, a professor at the University of Ulster, Tony Cassidy told The Telegraph

“Sisters appear to encourage more open communication and cohesion in families.However, brothers seem to have the alternative effect. Emotional expression is fundamental to good psychological health and having sisters promotes this in families.It could be that boys have a natural tendency not to talk about things. With boys together it is about a conspiracy of silence not to talk. Girls tend to break that down.” he said

According to the findings, the lowest scores were achieved by men who had only brothers. The tended to be more independent.

Liz Wright, the co-author of the study, added:

“With only children we found that they had lots of strong communication outside of the home. It appears that they have as much social support as those with siblings, but it does not come from within the family.”
