The Benefits of Travelling
What's all the fuss about travelling?
The benefits of traveling are not just a one-time thing. Travelling changes you physically and psychologically. There are too many benefits to list all but here are a few key ones. Maybe you’d like to add this this. We’d love to hear from you. Feel free to comment over on our FB Page
1. Improved Health
Cut down on stress. Lower your chances of developing a heart disease. Address the balance of your mental health. The health benefits of traveling are endless.. Your day job may be a sedentary one. Including some walking to your trip will make your body feel better. There is foolproof guarantee of any health benefit but studies show travelling does help you feel better, both physically and psychologically.
Traveling encourages us to step outside our comfort zone. This is more is likely to have a tremendous impact on our mental well-being. Your doctor is likely to wear a smile should you mention this if you are constantly in his consulting room. if you do have a condition that requires medication then please make sure to let your physician know. you may need extra supplies and additional medication if your travels involve heading to regions of the globe with potentially dangerous diseases.
2. Travelling Disconnects Us From Our Daily Life
We tend to be so caught up in our daily lives, that sometimes by simply sticking around we may cause more harm than good. Maybe your boss or your job is taking over your life? Maybe the kids are driving you mad? Perhaps your parents are trying to make you live the life they want? Sometimes we can only handle this pressure for so long before bursting and everything falls apart.
Sometimes it is best to take a step back, and travel is not a bad option. It is also the most natural way of inducing the feeling of being missed and missing someone. A bit of preparation helps avoid making mistakes and getting yourself organised.
3. Travelling Makes Us Smarter
Every time you travel you will see improvements in your brain capacities. Languages do challenge us, whether we speak another language or two or not. Travelling encourages us to learn about ourselves. You will run into at least one challenging situation where you need to be resourceful and think differently. We test our problem solving abilities when we travel outside our comfort zone.
4. Travelling Improves Our Understanding Of Other Cultures
This is a big one. Being more understanding and tolerant about another culture gives us knowledge. Knowledge is power and can only benefit us. many people that have travelled to regions where they have little knowledge of, often return learning so much and broadening their opinions. To experience first hand is way better than learning through hearsay. It makes us less judgemental.
5. Travelling Makes Us More Interesting
There is no doubt you become quite the conversationalist. Mentioning something that most people aren't familiar with or bring a new perspective, is always a good way to shine in a social situation. It is also beneficial to any career. A story about your adventures around South America are sure to hold the attention of most.
6. Travelling Broadens Our Taste Buds
Eating local food in a new country is an entirely new experience. All the flavors are different. The curry in India isn’t that we taste in The UK. The sushi never the same as in Japan. The possibilities are endless and enlightening.
7. Travelling Creates Lifetime Memories
No matter how insignificant it may seem, the fact that we've had an experience abroad, something that was out of the ordinary, creates a memory that will be remembered for a long time. Whether travelling alone and meeting new people or going with a partner, friends or family, the memories are priceless.
8. Travelling Makes Home Even More Home
It may seem that you’re back where you started, same setting, same people, same problems. Yet you are not the same. A new you full of new knowledge and ideas! You’ll be amazed at how that brings positive change.
