Are you one of the couples who had to cancel their vacation plans because of the COVID-19 pandemic? Even if you and your husband want to hop on the next flight, it will not be safe to do so. Your travel plans should be best on hold while there is a risk of infecting yourselves and your loved ones with the virus.
Dr. John Denninger M.D., Ph.D., says “Travel is a great thing to appreciate, to remind yourself that not everyone has the opportunity to do this. That appreciation has been demonstrated to be positive for mood and mental health.”
