Girlfriend Getaways and “Man”cations
Single? Married? Stressed? No matter what your situation, nothing is more therapeutic then spending time with friends. When you need to laugh, cry, vent, whatever, a good friend is always there to help you through the good as well as the bad times.
Now imagine afternoon coffee and conversation with your best pal times 10! Chances are there are plenty of gals (and guys) who need a break from their daily grind and could use a little R & R. These days with the economy the way it is, stressful jobs (or lack thereof), relationships being tested to their limits, kids and more, it’s important that we make time for ourselves. What good are we if we’re a hot mess?
Gathering your homies for a getaway is exciting from the moment the idea is brought up. It gives everyone involved something to look forward to and the planning can be super fun. And regardless of where you go and what your budget is, you’d be surprised how even 1 or 2 nights away from “the usual” can be exactly what the doctor ordered.
For women, it is a time to vent, gossip, play and be girls without the eyes of husbands, co-workers, kids and/or family glaring at you. It’s important to keep your life fresh and youthful because these breaks allow you to recharge, gain perspective, relax and re-focus on what’s really important when you get back home. It’s like going to the chiropractor for your brain!
