Women are naturally caregivers, often putting others needs before our own. Connection with other women is something many of us are lacking too yet when women reach out and connect with each other it not only changes their lives, but in turn can change the world.
Women are each other’s emotional support system. From giving advice, being a shoulder to cry on, keeping secrets, lending a listening ear and boosting self-esteem, to developing strong and healthy female friendships is something all women can benefit from.
Each year 1 in 5 women struggle with a mental health condition, including anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). While counselling and medication may help, more and more women are turning to alternative natural options and looking for more deeper meaningful connections.
Time spent in nature is scientifically proven to boost our mental health, including but not limited to decreasing stress levels, improving creativity, lowering depression, decreasing rumination, easing PTSD, and improving our sense of well-being.
Adventure Therapy is a type of psychotherapy that utilizes activities, metaphors, physical challenges, outdoor activities and wilderness experiences with groups and families. This unique treatment modality is based on the theory that there is therapeutic value in creating safe ways for participants to experience actual and/or perceived risks that serve as agents to create desired change in the participant.
Nature restores mental functioning in the same way that food and water restore bodies. By engaging mentally and physically in a She Seeks Adventure activity, you are tapping into parts of yourself you may never before have explored and find previously undiscovered strengths, which can be an empowering and profound experience.
Ladies, it's time to think about number one....YOU!
