Hen parties in Newcastle are all the rage, especially for brides-to-be. It’s one of their last moments of freedom before getting married, but it’s also a time to relax and have fun after months or years of planning their wedding. While some people may think that partying isn’t healthy, it can be if it’s relaxing and enjoyable.
When you spend time with your friends, especially friends of the same sex, it can lower stress levels more than spending time with a partner, family members, and friends of the opposite sex. There’s just that air of ‘being free’ that you can’t get when you’re around your significant other, family, and men.
While no study is ever going to say that it’s healthy to drink calories from alcoholic beverages, alcohol has been shown to reduce stress and lower inhibitions, which can help you relax and unwind in a way you can’t do at the spa. Along with such, you’re likely to loosen up a bit and hit the dance floor at the club, which can help you burn calories. Exercise is known to help you feel good about yourself and can help you stay fit enough to get into your wedding dress on the big day.
Laughter as Medicine
Studies have also shown that laughter can help you ward off illness, such as the common cold or flu. Enjoying yourself and reducing stress levels is the best way to keep yourself healthy. Along with such, it can stimulate the organs by taking in more oxygen, which is then stimulating the heart, lungs, and muscles. Laughing can also lower blood pressure and your heart rate, which, in turn, reduces stress. This can be extremely helpful for the soon-to-be bride who is likely worried about all the plans, how the big day will go, and what her new life has in store for her.
