Is owning a holiday home a great investment?
Well you’re not just investing financially, potentially saving the money you’d spend on costly hotels, but you’re investing in a new lifestyle, and this can have a huge impact on mental health and well being. And there’s no better investment than that.
Let’s delve a little deeper into the many reasons why;
Owning a holiday home means more opportunity to spend real quality time with the family and the people you love, something that’s not always possible at home! Whatever you enjoy doing together, times like these are good for everyone’s mental health, particularly the younger ones who’ll carry the precious memories of these times throughout their lives.
How many times have you said “I didn’t realise how stressed I was until I got away”? When you don’t need to worry about work, chores, school etc. you finally get the chance to switch off. Breaks are essential to avoid things like chronic stress, anxiety and even depression and sometimes a quick, spontaneous weekend away is all you need to reset and recharge.
Become more active
Holiday parks tend to be in a beautiful country or coastal setting with plenty of activities on their doorstep, so it’s much easier to become more active. Whether you fancy taking up walking, cycling or even wild swimming, the effect on physical and mental health is enormous… and long lasting.
Birds tweeting, waves crashing, absolute silence… Most holiday parks tend to be in a quiet, rural setting surrounded by nature, and being surrounded by nature has an impact on how you feel. People who spend more time with nature are more likely to report better mental health than those that don’t.
Money worries are one of the biggest causes of stress and anxiety we face in everyday life. Once you own your own holiday home, you needn’t worry about that when it comes to holidays.
Investing in the right holiday home on the perfect holiday park means you’ll never need to book expensive accommodation, plane tickets or find spending money every time you want to get away.
One of the best things about owners only Holiday Parks is the sense of community. Find the right park for you and you’ll be surrounded by relaxed, positive, like minded folk, with the time to chat.
We all feel excited when we book a holiday. Owning a Holiday Home means you’ll always have your next trip away to look forward to, so you can feel excited whenever you want to!
You won’t just feel the benefits of your Holiday Home when you’re using it. Not only will you be happily looking forward to your next trip, but studies show that the positive effects of a holiday last for up to a month after returning home.
For the family
If you own a Holiday Home, then you’re in the envious position of being able to improve the mental health of your family. By sharing your home with your children and grandchildren you’re passing on all of the benefits above, lowering their stress, saving them money, while enjoying quality time together and feeling amazing. You’ll be a hero, especially if you leave the freezer stocked!
So there you have it, some of the many mental health benefits of having the freedom for you and your family to get away that you may not have considered.
