The women increasingly prefer to do trips with their friends, at any age.
A statistic recently shows that over the last six years there has been an increase of 230% in the number of companies that organize trips for women, which means that there is increasingly greater demand in this sector. In the States, trips to the women constitute 4% of all the turnover of the tourism, for a sum of about 200 million dollars a year, and also in Italy are more and more agencies and online services that organize trips to the “pink”.
The journeys of women, however, are not only a good news for the market: a study conducted by Harvard university has found that travelling with friends involves a number of health benefits.
The researchers said:
The social connections of this kind not only give us pleasure, but they also affect on our health in the long term in ways that are both efficient and just the right amount of sleep, a good diet and not smoking.
The article disclosed in 2010 and published in an updated version to August 2019 in the address book, the Harvard Women’s Health Watch, explains: “Dozens of studies have shown that people who have satisfying relationships with family, friends, and members of their community are happier, have fewer health problems and live longer”.
When we talk about travel with friends you automatically think of young women, perhaps not yet married and without children, but these advantages really apply to all ages: the journeys of women only do well to teenagers or twenty-somethings, and sometimes also a woman that is more mature would derive great benefit from the exit from the routine and occasionally prefer an adventure of a few days with friends rather than a trip of a couple or family. Without considering that the number of women who choose a life of single increases, as well as rises more and more the average age for married.
Of course, as the years pass, the way to have fun on vacation maybe less wild and more responsible, but there are still a number of benefits that travel with the girlfriends still behave for anyone, regardless of age.
1. The trips strengthen the friendship, which is essential for our well-being
Spend a weekend or a week in the company of our friends is the ideal to find the time, far away from the commitments of everyday life, to make stronger the friendship, and this, in turn, is a source of well-being. Not only the experience of travelling and exploring a place together, but the time that you end to devote to confidences, without the hassle of deadlines of work or any other form of duty, it is essential to bring balance in a friendship, or make it more intense, in a way that the occasional drink or dinner together can’t afford.
Research shows that women, more than men, they need to maintain this kind of connection. They increase levels of serotonin and oxytocin, the hormone of attachment and love
2. Traveling with friends is liberating
The feeling of leaving everything behind when boarding a plane, a ship, a train, or in the machine with friends at a time of a few days of real break from it all is priceless and cathartic as a few. The idea to remove the plug from the routine and live for some time without hours it is delicious at any age, and the more time that passes, the more you learn to appreciate these brackets to the suspension to recharge the batteries.
Any activities that make you enjoy the pleasure of a real break, the desire to escape never goes away, and every so often must be accommodated, and because, as stresses William Chopik of the Michigan State University – the friendship can have a greater impact on our happiness and our well-being of other relationship types, it is time to start planning the next outing with friends.
3. Traveling with friends means sharing unique experiences
Traveling is always beautiful, even alone, but in that case there is only one major limitation: while we are experiencing something unforgettable, we do not have someone with whom to share the experience while it happens, and tell it to the things that are made is not the same.
A study conducted by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, through the use of magnetic resonance imaging to analyze the reactions of the brain while participants watched the photographs, has found that the emotional response of women was greater when friends were living the same experience. The study also revealed that participants felt the immediate desire to share their emotional responses with friends.
So, what better way is there to experience the journey together and create memories that we will join our best friends for the rest of your life?
4. Traveling with friends is more likely to meet new people
When you are travelling with friends you are more willing to chat with the people you meet on the way, and not necessarily with open sights romantic. During a vacation as a couple is nice to enjoy each other’s company to the exclusion of all others, while if you go out with your friends the probability to do unexpected things and talking with strangers increases significantly… and that is a perspective that is always tempting.
5. Travel with the friends of long date to rediscover their friendship
Not there are many friendships that withstand the passing of time: the passing of the years leaves a mark on all of us, and the changes in our lives and in ourselves sometimes do disappear the compatibility of a time… that’s why we need to celebrate those relationships that withstand all the adversity, and there is no better way to do that than to spend a vacation – even short term – together. Away from the pressures of our lives, the journey does come out into the open version of us more relaxed and real, the one that we were before that happened so many things… Maybe it’s just the one with which we have gained the friendship of the people most dear to them.
