editor’s note

Three out of five British employees experience some form of mental health issue as a result of their work, according to a recent study for the charity Business in the Community. Help comes from recognising the struggle to disconnect from our thoughts about work pressures and to connect with our emotions, also in staying active, eating well and resting well. To all this, naturally enough, I’ll add the intertwined benefits of travelling well. If you were to ask me where or how on a personal level I’ve travelled best, my first instinct would be to rattle off a list of places and experiences: South Australia, Kenya and Ecuador; and exploring, coming closer to nature and understanding a different culture. Yet the true mental refreshment from those trips came from the feelings I experienced while on them and since: awe, surprise, exhilaration, happiness and peacefulness included. Such emotions that underlie travelling well are discussed later in this issue. Dotted between our run of large-scale features (from p35), we’ve published a series of four articles under the title The Place to Be, recommending many places and experiences to broaden your emotional horizons. We carry you between destinations as diverse as New Orleans and Papua New Guinea, feeling a deep sense of joy, a spirit of adventure, passion and solitude along the way.
