Escaping Plato’s Cave – How an Adventure in Thailand Might Transform Your Life

The ancient Greek philosopher Plato described a cave where humans were chained up facing a wall. This is the only life they had known since birth. There only awareness of the outside world was the shadows that were cast on the wall, and they assumed that this was the best reality had to offer. One day, one of these prisoners manages to escape his chains. He makes it to the world outside and is astounded by what he sees – his senses are overwhelmed with delightful stimuli – it is a paradise that he wouldn’t even have been capable of imagining before seeing it.

Eventually, the escaped prisoner returns to the cave to tell his friends about his amazing discovery. He tries his best to describe the incredible sights, sounds, and smells of the outside world but nobody will believe him. They are convinced that what they are experiencing in the cave is the only reality and that their friend must be insane.

In order for us to escape our own particular prison, it is often necessary to go on an adventure. It just may not be possible for us to break the chains created by our habits and usual thinking patterns while we remain in our usual environment. There are too many triggers (click here to find out more about relapse triggers) and too many influences keeping us stuck in our old ways. Coming to Hope Rehab Thailand can be a bit like escaping Plato’s cave – it provides the possibility of seeing life in a completely new way.

The Great Escape – Thailand Means No Cold Winter Blues

Winter can be a particularly challenging time for our mental health. Sometimes the best solution to a dark time can be a change of scenery. This is not about running away from our problems but about doing what we need to do in order to manage and survive them.

Summertime Blues – Depression, Anxiety, and Addiction Issues

A lack of love for the summertime may just be down to personal preference, but it can also be due to an underlying disorder or because we’ve had bad experiences at this time of year. Summer can bring out the worst in us, and this is particularly the case if we have some kind of addiction issue.
