Friends-having-a-girls-night-out-at-the-Winery-and-Inn-1SHIPPENVILLE, Pa. – Of course, hanging out with your best gal pals is fun. You don’t need us to tell you that!

But, did you know that there can be some serious advantages to your overall wellness when you take some time out of your busy life and dedicate it to spending time with your friends?

  1. Total relaxation

Did you know that studies have shown that hanging out with friends can counteract stress and tension? It’s due to the oxytocin released by your brain which counteracts stress, prompted by hanging out with your friends! But, science-y stuff aside, spending a weekend de-stressing with your friends is bound to have a relaxing effect on you.

   2. Pressure and stress free night

Drink wine in your jammies, tap into your competitive side while playing games, and eat all the snacks your heart desires. When you set aside significant time to get away with your friends, you don’t have to worry about any responsibilities! All you have to do is enjoy yourself – and there’s no deadlines for that!

  3. Stepping away from your routine

Struggling with something at work or at home? Taking some time away from your hectic life can help bring clarity. Not to mention, you’ll have a bunch of your most trusted advisors with you to bounce ideas off of and get any advice you might need.

 4. Heart-healthy perks

Okay, okay – I know this sounds dramatic. But it’s proven that having close friendships can decrease blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol levels. Having a hard time prioritizing taking time away to enjoy yourself with friends? Not only is it good for you mentally and spiritually, it is good for you physically – you need it!

 5. Experiencing Something New

Grabbing drinks or lunch with your friends is a great way to relax, but over time all of those experiences blur together. By taking a girls’ getaway, you can do something truly unforgettable and try something that you’ve never done before, such as visiting a scenic winery B&B to brush up on your wine knowledge, staying in gorgeous rooms with personal fireplaces and hot-tubs, and trying out new foods.

Taking time out of your hectic life to spend with your friends is not only a ton of fun, but good for your overall health and wellness, too!

Make sure to book your girls getaway soon, for a fun couple of days filled with therapeutic hot tubs for ultimate relaxation, homemade dinner and breakfast included, a common area filled with games to play and TVs to watch, and, of course, wine tours and tastings if you’re looking for something fun to do.
