According to an article by Psychology Today, women need to have female friends in their circle. Girls are naturally emotion-driven, so having to deal with the rationality that comes with adulthood can be stressful. There are things that you can only talk about with another lady. Moreover, when you’ve built friendships strong enough, you learn to understand each other even without words, but innately.
However, as you get older, you succumb to the responsibilities of being an adult, and a mother once you have children. Life is full of obligations, and even the most high-maintenance person will get burned out at one point. You lose time for yourself, and your girlfriends lose time for themselves. Before you realize it, you’ve gone months without seeing your once tight-knit circle of friends.
As a woman, this is a nightmare. You become moody, your hormones get the best of you, and you crave an opportunity to let loose and have fun. But there is no need to worry. In trying times like these, you and your friends can get rid of the burn of reality and feel alive again by going on girls getaway. Here is what you need to do to plan for one of the most exciting weeks of your life.
Organize a Date
Everyone is busy, and finding a common day off is stressful enough. Imagine the added struggle of gathering your group of best friends for an entire week away. The good thing is that every group has a de facto leader, and if you happen to play that role, it’s time to put your organization skills to good use.
Start by coordinating with your friends to make work and home arrangements. Find out when it’s safest to take a leave from work, or when there are not a lot of school activities, so your husband would not be overwhelmed with the kids. Let your co-workers and family know that you need some me-time with friends to rejuvenate after months or years of never having time.
After that, you should be able to find a week where you’re all available. If not, you can always make adjustments. With just back and forth messaging, your girl power will definitely find a solution.
Book the Perfect Getaway
Your week off is precious, so choosing the right girls getaway is a true test of friendship. You want all your friends to have fun, to relax and release the stress of everyday life. Therefore, a good option is to choose a package that understands your need for healing and wellness. Of course, that does not mean that you’ll be meditating for days. Your ideal package would likely have various activities for you and your friends to enjoy.
A blend of royal treatment and kayak adventures make for a modern princess getaway. Campfires, music, a tinge of alcohol, and a lot of fun are what you absolutely need to make the most out of your precious time together. There is so much to look forward to, especially with a lovely group of friends. From relaxing spas together to a whole lot of catching-up, the perfect girls getaway will make you feel young and alive again.
It’s a good idea to book your getaway as early as possible because slots may fill up quickly, depending on the season. Before that, do not forget to send all the options to your beloved group chat. You want everyone to agree, after all. But with such an exciting princess-perfect package, there is no way your friends would say no.
Pack Your Bags and Jet Away
Once you and your friends have booked a girls-only vacation, the only thing you have left to do is to pack your bags and wait for the exciting week to come. Do not forget to take your beauty essentials and some cute outfits for some adorable Instagram shots. If you’re not certain of what to wear, here are some great outfit ideas that are age-appropriate for any fashionista out there.
A getaway with your friends is a rare treat for busybodies and mothers, so make sure you make the most out of it!
