Travel Therapy: Holidays for Mental Health & Wellbeing
Take a vacation to get away from the busy routine of your daily life and for the wellbeing of your mental health.
Are you wondering whether travelling can really help you detoxify your life and boost your wellbeing?
Well, it’s true. You can use travel therapy to help with your mental health and wellbeing.
Let’s dig deeper and find out how your next vacation can help you improve your mental health.
How travel helps mental health?
Many of you have used or at least heard of music or art therapy but very few know about travel therapy. There are many research reports which show that travelling not only elevates your mood and brings a change in scenery but also has many health benefits.
Research from the Medical Journal of Wisconsin suggests that women who take frequent vacations are less stressed and depressed.
Another research from Edith Cowan University has found that holidays can leave a positive impact on people who are dealing with mental health issues or conditions such as anxiety, depression, dementia, and more.
Travelling helps you feel calm and rejuvenated and gives you a sense of relaxation that you cannot easily find in your daily life. Along with improving your creativity, it also improves your mental power.
According to researcher Dr Wen, new environments and new experiences provide cognitive and sensory stimulation that heals a person’s mental health.
Tourism appears to promote physical and mental health mostly after the pandemic, said Dr Wen.
So next time, take time out of your vacation and don’t feel guilty about taking a week-long trip, especially when you’re dealing with your mental health and trying to recover from it. If someone in your family is having similar problems, take them on vacation. Travelling can relieve anxiety and depression. It doesn’t matter if you travel internationally, but you can also visit a nearby town for a change of scenery.
