“Each time a woman stands up for herself, She stands up for all women.” – By Farhana Rahman Subhan
Today we are living in a world full of stress and anxiety and this has affected our mental health to a greater extent. Mental health is of utmost importance as it has a direct impact on our physical health and we may suffer from chronic diseases, but unfortunately we pay very less attention to it.
The emerging concept of medical tourism provides the scope to deal with a wide array of mental diseases like depression, eating disorders, anxiety disorders and many more. Societal negligence and lack of awareness about the concept of travel therapy has motivated me to work on this issue with a versatile outlook.
I could sense that when a women reaches her midlife becomes more conscious about her health parameters, her wardrobes - to look a little younger but pay very less attention to her mental health or probably raising her kids and taking care of her husband. In this chain she is lost and unhappy.
I have taken a small initiative in promoting more and more women travelers across the globe with the motto safe tourism for the benefit of the women in general as it is a proven fact that travelling boost up the mental health. I solely believe that
Travelling is the time to disconnect from the daily hassle and stress of work and experiencing other culture and trying new flavors. It has also become very clear that travelling has number of psychological benefits supported by researchers.
Taking vacation actually does improve our well being and mood .Apart from feeling happier and relaxed, we are able to handle our jobs more efficiently.
Travelling with our partner or family can also improve our existing relationship. Moreover going out with the family improves feelings of connectedness and bringing the kids along can have a positive impact on family functioning and bonding.
