We love to travel and it doesn’t take much for us to pack a bag and head to some place new. So it’s great to know scientists all agree that travelling has many benefits to your health and we think that includes the soul too 🙂
Firstly, You Will Be Inspired
Travelling opens us up to new cultures and the more you see of the world, the more creative you become. Different countries, cultures, food and language….there is so much to discover in the world. It’s bound to get your creative juices following.
You Will Make New Connections
From the people you stay with, to those you meet out and about, all the different people you come into contact with will deepen your social connection and build empathy with strangers.
It’s The Best Way To Relieve Stress
Breaking away from your daily routine creates a significant reduction in stress. Seeing new places, experiencing new things, being in nature or walking through a city – these situations all help give you a more positive outlook on life.
It’s Good For Your Health
Whether it’s walking around a new city or hiking up a mountain, travelling means you get your body moving. We all know physical exercise lowers your blood pressure and lowers your risk of heart problems.
It’s Good For Your Brain Too
Making plans about where to go, what to see and how to get there and learning phrases of a new language are some examples of how you give your brain a workout when you travel, keeping it active and sharp.
And So Good For The Soul
Learning new skills, escaping your routine, tasting new foods, meeting new people, physical exercise being inspired – these are all ways we feed our soul and work towards spiritual peace. Connecting with the world we can spiritually grow and work towards becoming the best possible version of ourselves. Time to pack a suitcase!
