There's no excuse not to organise that girls' trip now!
Sure it's not too surprising that a holiday makes you feel good, but now hard research is here to back you up.
New findings have revealed that taking a girls' trip is one of the keys to keeping us happy and can have a positive impact on our overall health, too.
Harvard University conducted a recent study that found going away with friends gives you noticeable health benefits.
"Social connections like these not only give pleasure, they also influence our long-term health in ways every bit as powerful as adequate sleep, a good diet and not smoking," the study stated.
Psychologist Dr William Chopik, who studies friendship, told Well + Good that the real benefit of a girls' getaway is seeing your friends face-to-face.
"Friends serve as a source of support. You can share things with them that you may feel you can’t with partner or family member - particularly if you’re having trouble with said partner or family member," he adds. “You can sit down, look them in the eye, have a true back-and-forth, and read each other’s body language. They can see you and your facial expressions."
So, where will your next girls' trip be - all in the name of happiness and health, of course!
