Why travel is good for your mental health

As the world keeps spinning, following a rollercoaster few years a lot of us have found ourselves working from home full time, less invested socially then we used to be and perhaps even becoming a little too comfortable with this routine.

Terminology including “wellness, mindfulness, and mental health checks” has become part of our everyday language. Where travellers used to take holidays abroad on a regular basis, and take time off work to do so, now we see a trend towards shorter weekend and midweek breaks gaining popularity, especially in the domestic market.

Now you have the choice to bring your work with you to a calming environment and avail of last-minute midweek or long weekend rates at hotels. Our customers tell us that they want to escape from their environment even if it means having to work an extra day during their stay with us. The trade-off is this – Glasgow is waiting to be explored by just walking out our front door. You can breakfast, lunch and dine in multiple eateries within a small radius of our hotel. In the evening, you can switch off and immerse yourself in any number of events taking place in Glasgow, which remains one of the most culturally rich cities in the world.

So why is travelling good for us?

You arrive at the Kelvingrove Hotel tired and exhausted, you leave rested and rejuvenated.

You’ll physically feel better. Glasgow is a great walking city and to get to where you want to go, we always recommend walking through the streets of Glasgow. It’s also a fantastic way to experience the friendliness of us Glaswegians.

You’ll sleep better. It’s a fact that many of us are getting by with minimal sleep. Our comfortable bedrooms offer everything you need for a good restful night’s sleep.

We hope that we have given you just a few reasons why booking a short midweek or weekend city break in Glasgow staying at the Kelvingrove is so good for your mental health.
