Secret to women’s health? A Girls Trip, Says Science
Guy drama, the time commitment children take, high-pressure jobs, and overall exhausting demands of the world that we live in — the cure to all of it is to take some time out for yourself. There is nothing better than a change of scenery with a group of women who know how to have a grand old time!
So right now is the best time to grab your girls and start planning an epic and luxurious girl’s trip! And to top it all off, all of this is confirmed by science!
Here are the top 5 reasons how a girls’ trip can improve women’s health:
Your Sanity Depends on It
According to research, when you spending time in friendly social settings increases your oxytocin production. Oxytocin is called the “love” hormone because of which we feel good and joyous every time we are with our loved ones. This increase in oxytocin strengthens all of your relationships and is also responsible for reduced pain (like forgetting the traumatic labour and birth pain the second we hold our babies!). Spend more quality time with your girls, get super healthy — what a great deal!
Stopping yourself from creating close friendships is actually bad for your health:
When we lack meaningful interpersonal interaction and relationships, it affects our health as bas as having ¾ of a pack of cigarettes. DAILY. Holy! This was revealed in a study conducted by Harvard researchers!
Consider it Self-Care because your girls will protect your heart. LITERALLY!
You might be making time to do yoga a few nights a week or giving yourself pedicures with Netflix on Sunday nights is your jam. Whatever self-care ritual might be your calling, it is equally important to spend meaningful and close time with girls who get you!
The same Harvard study states this in no uncertain terms that spending caring and happy time with a close circle has shown improving health all around, “for example, they’ve found that it helps relieve harmful levels of stress, which can adversely affect coronary arteries, gut function, insulin regulation, and the immune system. Another line of research suggests that caring behaviors trigger the release of stress-reducing hormones.”

Your girls know you best
No matter how lovely your romantic relationship is with an amazing partner who really seems to “get” you, the understanding and insight that comes from a group of women who have lived experiences you can relate to has a deep, irreplaceable value. Especially if it’s friends you have a long history with, it means you can be 100% yourself with them and never have to worry about being judged or rejected. The feeling is purely amazing.
It’s hard to make out time to hangout with your girls but you will have no regrets
We all wish we had more than 24 hours in a day, so it is understandable how daunting of a task it may seem to getaway for a girls’ trip. But it’s not impossible! Pop a mini vacay in your goals for the year, maybe plan a special night one week to hit the best restaurant, go out for ice-cream and pizza like your used to in high school! Or even host a little potluck at your apartment. All the minor details of how to do it will disappear and everything will fall into place once you are committed to taking out time to plan new adventures and taste new wines with the very best of the girls group there ever was!
What’s more? We have taken away all the planning off your hands anyway! All you need to do is grab your tickets, pack your bags, hop on the plane, and meet us in SANTORINI!
