For the study, a team of researchers analyzed data from 8,577 people from the Copenhagen City Heart Study which began in 1975 and included adults whose age was from 20 to 93. The participants were followed for 25 years.

Study author James O'Keefe explains: “We know from other research that social support provides stress mitigation, so being with other people, playing and interacting with them, as you do when you play games that require a partner or a team, probably has unique psychological and physiological effects. Raising your heart rate is important, but it looks like connecting with other people is, too.”
