Existential thoughts can often come up when someone is feeling isolated or disconnected from themselves and the world around them. This could be due to feeling lonely, or struggling with other issues in life such as depression, anxiety, and emptiness.
Another possible reason for having these thoughts could be a change in your circumstances or environment, such as moving to a new place, or dealing with significant life events, which could cause you to question your place in the world and make you feel disconnected from yourself and others.
Traveling is not only rainbows and butterflies .. it’s comprise…you’re welcome for getting that song stuck in your head! Mental health is essential to look after while exploring. From food poisoning, to anxiety, culture shock, distance from friends and family and uncertainty about the future, you may feel a sense of not belonging and loneliness. I spent many long multi-day hikes in the mountains thinking about what to do with my life since nothing was concrete or predictable and the possibilities seemed endless. At the end of the day, it was exhausting to think that much.
If you’re struggling with any anxiety, depression, or confusion about life it could hinder your ability to enjoy your trip and leave feelings of guilt for spending all that money when you’re not even enjoying it and stressing.
I advocate for therapy as it has helped me a lot with various skills and creating a positive mindset. My personal choice is Better Help because I like the classes and group therapy along with the individual therapy.
With this platform you’ll get one session of individual therapy per week and one group session as well as ability to join any classes. It’s all online and costs less than one session in most western countries. You can choose text, calls, or video sessions depending on your preferences. My favourite feature is the ability to text your therapist any time—it also has a journal feature which it makes journaling easy and convenient.
