Every lady needs a girl's weekend. With how crazy life is, quality time with friends doesn't happen as often as we'd like. Time with friends is essential for the soul just like sunshine, rest, and laughter. This time is scientifically proven to be good for you so grab your gals and pencil it in!
Getting away with the girls is fun, but did you know it's also great for your health and well-being? It has been proven that strong friendships can extend life expectancy and lower chances of heart disease. In 2016, researchers found evidence that spending time with friends can increase the production of Oxycontin, the hormone our bodies make when we're happy!
Set a date: We know it can be difficult to work around everyone's schedules, which is why it's important to plan in advance (a year ahead of time is not out of the question!) and get a date set on the calendar. 4-5 nights with travel included seems to be the perfect amount of time for a getaway with the girls. It's not too short and not so long that it's hard for friends to commit to the trip.
Choose a destination: Choosing your destination is the most exciting piece of planning, as it should be! There are a few things to consider during this phase of planning. Do you want to completely relax and spend your days lounging and chatting with friends, or are you looking for a little adventure? What accommodations are important? Do you want to spend time in a popular tourist destination, or does a place off the beaten path sound better?
