Why Women Need a Girls Night …3 Activities to Try

Why  Women Need A Girls Night…3 Activities to Try

Stress…What is so stressful in a woman’s life? Kids, meals, after school activities, job, laundry, house work, homework, school course load, errands.  I’m sure I can find women— even women with strong supportive and helpful partners need to blow off steam every now and then.  

Women to a large degree juggle a lifestyle that will make most men have a coronary and yet, we not only do so we usually give with joy and love to all the people who depend on us.  If a woman tells you she needs a break it’s probably well over due.  A girls night is a chance to relax, recharge and yes share parts of our lives that other women totally get without the unbearable explanations required when speaking to the masculine side of society.   Men let off steam with hobbies, football, beer and usually a TV, with most whom would never consider taking on this sort of lifestyle.  
To effectively manage all this chaos make sure in that super organized schedule that you take some time with the girls to refill your batteries.
Mothers, daughters, friends, co-workers, aunts, grandmothers, all these can be on the list.  Choose just a few or the whole group.  My group almost always has my mom who says my father did something similar, and lets face it there are some who we can cut loose with easier then others.  If it’s gonna involve alcohol or a male review please choose accordingly and just because it seemed like a brilliant idea after several margaritas it might not be appropriate to share with coworkers or on social media.

Plan a fun spa night…. invite a representative from a cosmetics 
company.  Yes they will try to sell some of their product but, you should get free or discount gifts for hosting add some wine and no kids or men you’re sure to enjoy the demonstration, and the fun conversations when the wine has been consumed. I’ve been to quite a few Mary Kay over the years and on of my girlfriends has a sister who is a consultant for them.

Board games…Monopoly, Sorry, or Several for Adults like Scattagories, or Dirty Minds can be an 

outrageously funny night depending on whom is attending and how their mind works.  My eighty year old grandfather had us rolling on the floor with some of his racy answers one year at Thanksgiving.

Magic Mike

Movie night….For the women you can do the tearjerkers that I have to bribe my husband to see, or in recent years some including Magic Mike, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, took a girls night by surprise since we had no idea about the nudity until we had chosen it as only one to fit time slot and theatre after another was sold out.  Either way in theatre or at home it still gives you the outlet needed.





Jennifer lives happily in North Florida with her husband Scott and after a stroke and two brain surgeries her mom. While not blessed with children they dote on their four legged children four cats. I started writing after spinal surgery required second round of physical therapy to learn to walk yet again. While reading is a favorite hobby writing is something new with the launch of this blog and hopefully a fiction novel in the future.
