Taking a Trip With Your Girlfriends Is Good For Your Health, According to Science

Clear your schedule and pack your bags, because you are going on a girls’ trip!!! Even if your boss balks, or your family whines, or your dog gives you sad little puppy eyes, tell them that you’re doing it for your health, and it won’t even be a lie. Science says an occasional mini getaway with your friends is good for you.

While we all love our families, it has been proven that friendship can extend life expectancy, lower chances of heart disease, and even help us better tolerate pain. Really! Psychologists were able to link the size of someone’s social network based on how much pain they were able to tolerate. Friendships also make us feel good. In 2016, researchers found evidence that spending time out with friends can increase production of oxytocin, the feel good cuddle hormone that our bodies make when we’re happy. Studies have shown that oxytocin can make people more trusting, more generous, and friendlier, all the things you look for in friends.

Having friends is scientifically good for your health, but it can be hard to maintain those friendships. People move, jobs change, kids grow up, and maintaining friendships can be difficult and the annual Christmas letter or occasional Facebook update doesn’t always do it.

So clear your schedule and start planning your girls getaway—for your health!!
