A Guys’ Trip is Like Guys’ Night Out Every Night!
We’ve already covered the importance of Girls’ Trips, and what they do for the souls of friends who love each other, and need a break from every day life. The same basics apply to guys. So, what about guys’ trips for mental health? Could they help, or hurt?
Sad though it is, men are the vast majority of suicide victims. Men also have a lower life expectancy than women, and slowly, they’re catching up to us on that front, which isn’t good. Men living shorter lives than women isn’t new, though – it’s been like that the whole time humans have been on Earth. Before, it was wars and disease that killed off men. Today, stress is killing more men than women, but again, that gap is closing, so don’t think that taking care of your mental health isn’t important.
Going on vacations with the guys is a fun way to get away from everyday stress, reconnect with the important men in your life, and explore a new place while creating memories that you’ll laugh about forever. Think about the fun times you had with your friends growing up. Adult guys’ trips are even better: you can go where you want, when you want, and there’s no one to stop you from living your best life.
Some of the stress that men feel comes from our own world teaching men to suppress their feelings. After hearing that throughout childhood and adolescence, it’s far to say that men deserve a break, and to express their feelings. Today, with a greater visibility on mental health, men’s mental health is at the forefront. Men, as a group, are finally getting the needed recognition of their mental health struggles and why addressing depression and anxiety is so crucial. On a guys’ trip, not only will you have the chance to be with your guys in healthy, productive way, but you’ll also be mitigating your stress levels. All of this talk about stress wouldn’t be complete if an obvious concern about travel weren’t addressed: the cost. Choosing Everything Vacations for your next guys’ trip is the cheapest and easiest way to take a step forward in your mental health care.
The most important part of your guys’ trip should be relaxing. Centering yourself can finally happen, you’ll be able to find the time to focus on yourself. You may not always feel like it’s possible to do that with everything that you have going on in the hustle and bustle of your daily life. That’s part of the overall importance of guys’ trips: recharging, recentering, and giving yourself the time you need to laugh, dance, and chill with your crew in one (or several) of our thousands of worldwide destinations.
If your crew doesn’t do relaxing, then it’s time for bonding activities! Of course, you don’t have to sit around knitting and trading recipes (unless you just want to). You’ll want to take trips to local sites, drink all of the local brew (after you’ve made sure that you have a sober ride home!), and hit all of the sporting events you want! Laughter is medicine to every man’s soul, and your soul deserves it.
Look into the face of relaxation.
While it’s true that this is the time to take care of your mental health, it’s also true that this is the time for you to check on your guys’ mental health, too. Use your trip to check in with your friends. Ask them how stress at work is making them feel. Ask your friends who are fathers about the relationships with their partners, and the well-being of and relationships with their children. You never know how a friend is really doing until they’re away from everything to which they have a responsibility. Be part of the worldwide movement of mindfulness to mental health, and regularly check-in with fathers, brothers, cousins, and friends.
