National Picnic Month

Thursday, 27 June 2013 18:04 

Women with depression, anxiety and substance abuse issues frequently isolate from family and friends in an attempt to avoid painful emotions. Brookhaven Retreat teaches the women in its recovery program to nurture continued wellness through routine healthy habits. National Picnic Month is the perfect opportunity to self-care, spend time with loved ones and reap the benefits of the outdoors.

Research shows that time outdoors reduces risk of depression. Brookhaven Retreat finds that time spent in nature also calms anxiety, boosts mood and encourages positivity. Friendships are similarly essential to a woman’s emotional health; they provide support during the most difficult moments in life and boost happiness and self-esteem while reducing stress.

Mental health treatment encourages women to reconnect with and nurture their friendships as a valuable aspect of recovery. A picnic celebration is an opportunity for women to connect with peers and is a lot of fun.

Brookhaven Retreat’s team of chefs recommend women pack a salad made from a variety of brightly-colored vegetables and omega-3 rich walnuts. A whole wheat sandwich, container of dressing and a fruit salad keeps lunch as simple as possible and allows women to remain stress free while focusing on the outdoors.

Brookhaven Retreat encourages women to celebrate mental wellness with a picnic, sun, fun and good company this July.
