Do you need Iceland? Sometimes, a place knows what you need before you do. For instance, Iceland knows how you feel. And Iceland knows how you want to feel.
Icelandic mental health professionals also know the power of a scream released. According to Zoë Aston, MSC Therapist & Mental Health Consultant:
Screaming as a therapeutic tool was developed in the 1970s as a way to release pent-up emotion. What we don’t realise is that the psychological response to wanting to scream lights up a part of our brains called the amygdala. The amygdala activates when we are under threat, something we have all experienced in the past few months.
If you feel the need to scream right now, Iceland has you covered.

Enough missing out. It’s important to note that Iceland is not a COVID-19 hotspot. The island nation also has a smart pledge for all tourists, plus Iceland Academy, where visitors are trained in the ways of Icelandic culture.
The people value cleanliness, a valuable thing to value right now.
