Vacationing for Grief

We’ve all been there. The loss of a loved one, the end of a serious relationship, these things feel world shattering and all consuming- and they can be. There’s no one size fits all solution to coping with grief but many people find comfort in a place away from the memories of what they have lost.

 

According to Mental Health America, one of the important steps in moving forward (not on from) your grief, is realizing that life is for the living. You are here, right now, and you have the ability to choose to live your life to the fullest extent. People everywhere are turning to travel as a way to refocus their lives and discover who they are in this new world. Take Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love” a story of Gilbert reinventing her life after everything she had known crumbled right before her eyes.

 

When you venture out into a new and sometimes confusing place, you are forced to rely on yourself and this opportunity can reveal your true character. From touring local breweries in big cities, to trying foods you would never have tried, or standing alone at the top of one of America’s beautiful mountaintops, travelling is transformative and eye opening.

 

We get it, when you’re dealing with grief, planning a trip feels impossible and maybe even hurtful to the memory of what you’ve lost, but take a chance and let us do the heavy lifting for you.

Grief doesn’t have to control your life, you can find peace and acceptance or the strength to grow, all while experiencing something new and getting back to the root of what makes the human experience so wonderful and that’s experience itself.
