What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you say ‘travel’
Vacation? Meeting new people? Or maybe, Instagrammable views of rain forests?
While traveling can be exciting and exhilarating, it's so much more than sipping drinks on a sun-soaked beach.
It's no news that travel is good for your physical well being, but exploring a new place can do wonders for your mental and emotional health as well.
Here are five reasons traveling makes your mind happy and healthy:
It’s a great stress buster.
Taking a break from the daily hustle and bustle is essential for your mind to relax, recharge and rejuvenate. And what better way to do so than to pack your bags and cross worthy destinations like Eco-Logic Thailand off your bucket list? Traveling promotes happiness and helps you take your mind off stressful situations.
It helps you reinvent yourself.
Experiential traveling, particularly to a foreign country, can help you re-evaluate and reinvent your life. Moreover, the valuable lessons that you learn along the way helps to broaden your perspective, making you more aware and open to new things. Exploring new places can also give you a fresh start if you're recovering from a major transition in your life.
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 challenges in an unfamiliar environment, among new people, forces you to learn,problem solve and adapt to a life that's out of your comfort zone. This makes you more flexible, patient and emotionally strong.
It enhances creativity.
It's important to note that traveling stimulates creativity only when you engage with the local culture of that place. Merely visiting a new city or a country isn't going to cut it. Additionally, extended traveling also improves your productivity and problem-solving skills!
Lastly, how can you reap the benefits after returning from the trip?
Hold on to aspects of a travel experience or vacation that was pleasurable.For example, if you liked the food in Thailand, learn how to cook Thai food in order to re-create some of the feelings you had while you were on vacation back home and share it with friends and family.
Now that you’ve finished reading about all the wonderful things travel does to your brain, it’s time to pack your bags and get going and you can start by coming to Eco-Logic!
