There’s no question that people lead stressful lives nowadays, and in most cases, it’s more stressful for them than the generation that came before them. Add to the fact that research from the American Psychological Association shows that women are also under more stress than men, and it’s clear that people could use a little time to wind down and relax. This is exactly why a girls’ night out is something that so many women look forward to, and plan on a regular basis. It’s a chance to chat, catch up with friends, put work and your personal life aside for a bit, and just be in the moment.
If you’re in the process of planning a girls’ night out with a few of your close friends and you want to be sure it’s a fabulous evening, then you’re going to want to read on. Here are five great ideas that you can use for your next girls’ night.
Check Out a Real-Life Escape Room
You may be familiar with the hugely popular games for your mobile device that fall into the escape room theme. These are games where you need to find clues, solve the puzzles, and find a way to escape the room. Well, how would you and your friends like to experience this in real life?
A company by the name of Breakout is offering this experience to people, with a Dallas escape room experience that offers an unforgettable experience. For those outside the Dallas area, you can check to see if an “escape room” exists near your town or city.
A Wine Tasting Party at Home
Wine tasting parties can be a fabulous activity for all, but if you’re signing up for one at a winery or restaurant, they can be pretty pricey. For those working within a budget, you can switch gears and have a wine tasting party at home. Ask each guest to bring one bottle of wine within a set price limit, and then each can be sampled. You can add to the fun by challenging guests to say something about each “vintage” as they sip it and add that real element of a true wine tasting.
Explore New Cuisine Together
If you and your friends see yourselves as foodies, a fun activity can be to explore a new cuisine each time you get together. Not only will you get to sample different foods, but you can find new favorite restaurants, and enjoy a relaxing evening of chatting over good food.
Sign Up for a Class
There are all kinds of one-time classes available today that allow you to do such things as learning how to paint, cook a gourmet meal, learn new dance moves, and even apply makeup like a pro. Again, this is something that you can turn into a regular activity and try a new class each time.
Take a Tour of Your City or Town
Why not be a tourist in your own town or city together and take a guided tour? Typically, you’ll find a selection of themed-tours that will show you areas of your city that you may not have even realized existed.
No matter which of these activities you choose, one thing is for sure and that’s the fact you’re bound to have a great time.
