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 support systems, and helpful partners that need to blow off steam every now and again.
Women to a large degree juggle a lifestyle that would make most men have a coronary and yet, we not only make it work, we usually do so with joy and love. With so many people who depend on us, we have a lot going on. 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 with women who totally understand, without the unbearable explanations, required when speaking to alot of men in our lives.
Men let off steam with hobbies, football, beer and usually a TV. Most whom would never consider taking on our lifestyle and responsibilities.
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, best friends, friends, co-workers, aunts, cousins, 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 drop our inhibitions.
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. Plenty of wine laughter and good friends make for a fun filled night.
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.
Need more fun….
