Why going on a Hen Do would be good for you?
So you’ve been invited on your friends hen do. If you are struggling to find an excuse why you should go, how about the fact that hen do’s are probably really great for your health. Don’t believe us? Read on to discover some of the many reasons why going on a hen do could have numerous health and wellness benefits!
Laughter is the Best Medicine
Let’s face it; a hen do is basically a girl’s holiday with a group of some of your best mates. You go back years and you have some great stories to recount, and piss yourselves laughing about. Well, what you may not know about laughter is that while it is really fun and feels good, it’s also great for strengthening the immune system, reducing pain, boosting energy and totally eliminating the negative effects of stress.
Travelling is good for the Soul
Any kind of travelling you do, whether for a hen do or otherwise, is going to be good for your health in more ways than one. Travelling opens your mind to new cultures, customs and ways of life. It educated you, teaches you and helps you to be more informed. Travel can reduce stress and help you see the bigger picture. And at the end of the day, its pure and simple fun (well maybe not that pure!)
Spa Days are Relaxing
Chances are your hens do abroad will include some kind of spa and wellness activities. Forget about all the stress or your work or home life and luxuriate in the simple pleasure of being totally pampered. A massage will help relieve tension, facials are great for the skin and most modern day spas have a wealth of great detox packages to get rid of all that alcohol you’ve consumer so far!
Exercise Releases Endorphins
Lots of hen dos today include adrenalin based activities and fun active sports. Partaking in a spot of running around with your girlfriends will release endorphins which in turn make you happy and help to energise the body and relieve the build-up of stress and tension from your daily life.
Sun is Full of Vitamin E
Travelling to a faraway land for your hen do often involves leaving the cold, grey weather of your home and exchanging it for warm sunnier climes. While doctors advise us to enjoy sun in moderation and avoid the strong midday rays, a controlled and responsible amount of sun per day is a great way of getting that all-important Vitamin E into the skin.
Being yourself is Refreshing
Chances are the people you travel to the hen do with are the ones you feel most comfortable with. Just being able to let go and be yourself without fear of judgement or criticism is a refreshing change from how many of us feel in our normal lives.
