Have you heard the good news? No, it’s not the recent discovery that the best cure for a cough may actually be chocolate — although that’s pretty amazing too. However, it does have to do with your health. We’re talking about the other big news that’s been trending this week: taking a trip with your girlfriends is good for your health, according to science. And with Galentine’s Day this month, there’s no better time to hit the beach with your BFFs. Here are just a few reasons to plan a Grand Strand Girl’s Weekend today, according to our favorite magazine, Southern Living.

Friendship might just be the key to a longer life. Studies have shown close friendships can extend life expectancy by lowering our risk of heart disease and stress, and even helping us to better tolerate pain.

Friendships make us happier people. Hanging out with friends can increase the body’s production of oxytocin, the feel-good hormone that boosts happiness, trust, and generosity, according to recent research.

Friendships are like the Fountain of Youth. A recent study at Harvard on the health benefits of strong relationships has shown a lack of friendship can lead to cognitive decline as we age, and even premature death, due to an increased risk of depression and dementia.

If you’ve been putting off that much-needed getaway, it’s time to pack your bags and give Vacation Rentals of North Myrtle Beach a call! And in case you need an excuse to take a minibreak, you can tell your boss and your family that it’s good for your health. Check out this featured property for your stay.
