Did you know that a night out can actually improve your health? A new study finds that strong social relationships can increase your chances of living longer by 50 percent!
Here is a short list of things to plan with your friends and buddies, just to get you inspired:
A Pinterest Party: Plan an evening when the hubbies take the kids and the girls get together to do things they found on Pinterest. For example, I saw this :: http://pinterest.com/pin/166070304979310654/ :: and a girlfriend and I are meeting at her parents' house to make one!
Sign up for a Class: Park districts offer classes for a pretty reasonable price. Also, I heard that Whole Foods has classes you can sign up for, too. Grab a few of your besties and do one together!
Volunteer: Check with your church or visit VolunteerMatch.org to get plugged in. Research shows a boost in mood, health, and sense of purpose as a result of giving your time and energy to a worthy cause.
A Few As & Ds: Meet up with some friends for some appetizers and drinks. Nothing beats a night out with some great people and good conversation!
As crazy as life can get, make sure you take some time - and MAKE some time - for you.
After all, it's what the doctor ordered!
