Do you ‘love thy neighbor?’ Getting friendly with your neighbors has more benefits than being able to borrow a cup of sugar — it could even improve your health. I know some people though, who have lived in their home for many years without ever even speaking to their neighbor…how about you?

A new study from the University of Missouri found an association between trusting one’s neighbors and better self-reported health. I had amazing neighbors at my house in Westland for over 20 years. I was very apprehensive about moving, and maybe not having such great neighbors, or worse yet, having a nasty neighbor! Thank God, when we moved to our new house 3 years ago, all the neighbors on our street welcomed us with open arms, and don’t even mind our ‘occasional wild parties’ and 3 yappy little dogs!

Are you more inclined to make friends with your neighbors face to face or make Facebook friends with people you have never met before?
