Travel is beneficial for many reasons, and can also increase mental well-being, not just in the short-term but it can sustain us for a longer period. Whether you’re traveling for business or on a family holiday, traveling can make you a happier person by building self-confidence, providing new experiences, memories, breaking routine, and allowing you to meet people from all over the world.
I feel happy when I’m gaining new experiences and insights, and challenging my boundaries. Travel is the perfect catalyst for happiness, as recently it has allowed me to experience the natural, cultural and man-made wonders of the world. Being in foreign lands, also continuously forces me to step out of my comfort zone and is a great confidence builder. I learned so much about the world and, most importantly, about myself.
Traveling gives us breathing space that is often lost in our usual day-to-day existence. Having a moment to take advantage of peace and quiet and to simply allows us to let go of stress and tension and just enjoy being in the moment.
Travelling allows you to learn a new skill such as cooking or learning a new language. Travel presents ways in which we can further our knowledge and education. Learning makes our brains more active, and psychologists have found that travelling increases our level of happiness – particularly when learning something we find enjoyable.
Learning is a strong reason why people love to travel. They want to experience something unfamiliar and leave with new skills or knowledge.
Seeing the world is more educational than a high school or college class. This condensed crash course in discovering how the rest of the world lives, will cover subjects like history, geography, and sociology. Every destination has something unique to teach visitors, and immersing themselves in a completely different world is the best learning experience.
And that’s why travel makes you a more confident and happier person!
