The heading of this article might be a little far fetched but I read something the other day along the lines that anti depressants and Anxiety meds are prescribed more than almost any other medication.
Physical exercise and time away from work, cell phones and all communication can work wonders for our mental health. No, I am not a medical Doctor (wish I was then I would have the money to go camping permenantly).
On my latest camping trip while riding our bikes through the camp grounds and while sitting around the camp fire looking at fellow campers relaxing you couldn’t help notice that some people just can’t put down technology. The faces on the different folks say’s it all. The ones with a stick with a marshmallow on the end looked relaxed and happy and the folks with a cell phone in hand looked angry and stressed. Ya, I know some people will tell you they are so important at work they just can’t be out of contact (bullshit).
Maybe our society (our governments need to understand the need for more low-cost relaxation and ways to relieve the stress of our always connected worlds is the answer to great mental health). Maybe tax credits for folks taking a vacation in the great outdoors. Maybe building lots more campgrounds that are affordable, hell why not have shuttle buses leaving out of big cities taking families who can’t afford a vehicle and camping gear to the great outdoors. Families and seniors currently are purchasing about 475000 RV’s each year in the US alone, however, campsites are becoming almost impossible to find unless you book months in advance. Maybe take the billions spent each year on medications and build campsites or other forms of buildings so people can relax and escape their stressful lives. Make the big pharma companies built the campgrounds.
I know I am on a rant here but sometimes our world’s backwords thinking just makes me scratch my head and say using my inside words does anybody actually think any more or does everything have to be about money.
Well thanks for reading if you read and please comment,
