What comes to your mind when I say the word “travel”? Sun-soaked evenings, muddy beaches, exotic foods, Instagram-able views, hippie-places, calm breeze swaying through your hair. Almost more than half of the world’s population have “Traveling more” on their bucket list. Why do people love traveling? Everyone wants to travel the world, whether it is to meet new people, taste new food, or visit new places. The reasons can be mixed and unclear to many. However, the effects of traveling are almost priceless. It can improve well-being, can be a means to reward yourself, derive mental health benefits, etc. Of course, travel is good for the physical well-being. Nevertheless, the psychological benefits of traveling are immense.
It does not mean to run away from your problems. It means to escape for a moment. Taking your attention away from the daily dilemmas and fantasizing about your trip. Even simple weekend getaways or longer vacations can help take the pressure off your lives. Fresh air and sunshine are wonderful medicines to destress. Freedom to take the day without a schedule can feel awesome.
