Why You Need A Girls’ Night Out ASAP

Life is stressful, and we need a way to cope, vent, and just kick back and relax for a bit. We get so caught up in our day to day responsibilities that sometimes, the one thing we really need is a night out with our BFFs to get our minds off everything.

  1. You actually get to dress up for once.Do you ever feel like you’re wearing the same outfit over and over again? Going out with the girls is a great opportunity to pick yourself a cute new dress or shirt and get all glammed up, whatever that means for you.
  2. You can dance like an idiot with your BFFs. One thing that guys sometimes don’t quite understand is the fact that women like to just go out for no other reason than to dance their faces off. There’s something about going out with your friends and forming a dance circle that’s totally zen-inducing.
  3. You can eat/drink whatever and however much you want.Regardless of what your eating and drinking habits are throughout the week, you can be sure of the fact that you’ll have the opportunity to pig out when you’re with your friends. Skip the calorie-counting and have a cheat meal night. The gym will still be there when you get back.
  4. You can take your mind off your responsibilities.When you’re with your friends, it’s nice to be yourself and not have to act like a responsible adult. You can forget about your job for a little bit and talk about literally anything else.
  5. You can finally complain about everything you’ve been holding in.If there’s one thing that your friends are always there for, it’s listening to you complain about the stuff that no one else wants to hear about. You can unleash our rage, anxiety, sadness or whatever emotion you’re feeling and finally let it out in the open.
  6. You can catch up on all of things you’ve missed.As you get older, it’s gets much more difficult to see your friends as often as you’d like to. Much more time passes between visits, which means there’s also much more to catch up on. A girls’ night out is that time to fit in those three months of, “So, what did I miss?” conversations.
  7. You can take a break from thinking about that guy.Enjoy your dinner and drinks with your girls and forget about that guy who’s been messing with your head for the past few weeks. Rant about him for five minutes, then let it go and have fun with your friends.
  8. It just feels good to be with people who get you.We encounter a variety of people each day, but nothing feels more like home than being around the people who truly know and understand you. A girl’s night out is like a re-charge and a breath of fresh air.
