When I say: “travel” what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Vacation, holiday, beach, sunset, or mountains, waterfall, flying?
When you return from a vacation feeling relaxed and refreshed, that’s not just an emotional response to time away from work and daily worries: you’re experiencing some of the nourishing effects of traveling.
Significant amount of scientific research shows that travel is good for your physical wellbeing, your mental and your emotional health as well.
Here are some benefits of travelling:
- It is good for your heart. Taking vacations can lower men’s risk of death by 21 percent and mortality from cardiovascular disease by 32 percent. Among women, a lack of vacation is associated with a higher risk of heart disease and death from heart disease.
- Travel is a great stress buster. Taking a break from the daily hustle and bustle is essential for your mind to relax, recharge and rejuvenate. Traveling promotes happiness and helps you take your mind off stressful situations. This leads to lower cortisol levels, making you feel more calm and content.
- It boosts happiness and satisfaction. Apart from the obvious fact that you don’t have to go to work, traveling gives you the opportunity to step away from the daily grind. The new events and experiences help rewire your brain, hence boosting your mood and self-confidence.
- It makes you mentally resilient. Going and living somewhere where you feel excited and intimidated at the same time can help you toughen up mentally and emotionally. Also, facing difficulties in an unfamiliar environment, among new people, forces you to learn and adapt to a life that’s out of your comfort zone. This makes you more flexible, patient and emotionally strong.
You only lives once, so live!
