I’m having a girl’s night soon and was looking around for some ideas of some different things to do. I thought it would be nice to have a break from the makeup for once! I wanted a bit of a de-stress and refresh night, so the focus here is very much on relaxation. Anyway, here’s a few interesting ideas I found that might make a break from the norm.
Recently, I wrote a post about some of the best ways to relax. Have a read – there are some good tips in there for you if you want to de-stress and take some time out from your busy schedule. I use a lot of them all the time and get a lot out of each of the techniques – and they are excellent preparation for a night of pampering with the girls!
To break with the traditional beauty-based girl’s night, why not make your own products try out? It will cost you far less than buying a new batch, and you can have some fun in the kitchen beforehand. Although I would also arrange a cleaning schedule, too, because things are guaranteed to get messy. Head over to TheDatingDiva.com for some inspiration.
Now you are all pampered, you could think about hiring a masseuse to come around. Depending on how much you can handle being pulled and pushed around a table, I would recommend a sports massage – although beware, it’s not for the faint of heart!
For those of you looking for something a little lighter, then I can point you towards hot stones treatment. It is, quite frankly, divine. Your therapist will warm up some flat, very smooth stones and use them on your aching limbs. Now, one thing you need to make sure you do is check up on your therapist’s credentials. Although a hot stone massage can be so relaxing when done well, if it’s done by somebody inexperienced it can have the opposite effect.
Finally, now you are in a state of bliss, here’s an interesting idea that I have yet to decide whether to try. It’s called astral projection and is, in essence, giving yourself an out-of-the-body experience.
According to those who believe in such things, out of body experience are called ‘astral projections.’ Apparently, when you have one, you are experiencing your soul leaving your physical body and entering the cosmic realm. Or something. Fancy giving it a go? There are plenty of ways to get started and lots of resources for learning the best astral projection techniques. I can’t claim it will give you any results, but from reading up online there are some interesting reactions from people. And, most importantly, it is supposed to be the ultimate in relaxation.
With any luck, after all of that you will be ready for a perfect night’s sleep! Not all of these ideas are a good fit for everyone, of course, but take what you want out of them. And I’d also love to hear from any of you who might have a different idea of a relaxing night in with the girls. So let me know and share away!
