Blog8 - 4 positive effects of travel on health and personality

4 positive effects of travel on health and personality

We all know that travel is fun and enjoyable. It exposes us to amazing surroundings, delicious food, amazing people and interesting cultures. For the working professional, travel can even expose you to new business opportunities that propel your career forward.

Aside from the enjoyment, travel also has a lot of positive effects on our body, mind, and personality. These have been scientifically proved. Here we bring to you some of these positive effects. We hope that these can inspire you to engage in more traveling.

Diversity and Mental ability

When we are exposed to diversity, it opens up our mind to new information and experiences. When this happens, the ability of our mental faculties are sharpened. If you think about it, access to new means of knowledge enables us to use our brainpower more. It is no secret that humans on average use less than 10% of their brain capacity. For instance, I would have never gone to a chiropractor in sacramento if I didn’t open my mind to healing powers of chiropractic.

Openness and extraversion

There are many of us that are introverted by nature and feel awkward when we have to converse with new people. Forming relationships is not so easy to achieve. When we travel, by default we are forced off our comfort zone and feel compelled to interact with strangers and form relationships. This broadens our social horizons and makes us a little less introverted.

Creativity

In line with the previous points, travel opens up our creative faculties. For those that constantly engage only their left side of the brain at their workplace, this is extremely relevant. Multiculturalism and multiethnic experiences make us think in a different fashion. When we interact with new cultures, we have to form a different style of interaction to fit in. This helps us open up our right and artistic side of the brain.

Happiness and fulfillment

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, travel creates happiness. Happiness is something that each human pursues in life, but very few realize it and or able to maintain it over a course of time. Travel has been proven scientifically to lower chances to depression and make people happier. Research also proves that travel brings more happiness than materialistic possessions. Furthermore, it is a great stress buster.

These are but some of the positive effects of traveling on your health and personality. You can realize even more by making positive choices when you travel, such as, say keeping to a proper diet and exercise schedule when you travel.

Off-the-beaten track

We often hear of off-the-beaten tracks as a way to minimize tourist crowd and to spend less. On the road, this is much easier to plan. If you are driving, you can choose destinations – say small towns, villages, rural areas – where you would spend significantly lesser. It also gives you a unique perspective on travel, as more often than not, you are forced off your comfort zone.

Get advice from fellow travelers

This is quite a no-brainer. Talking to other travelers and getting crucial advice from them enables you to better predict your budget and your experience as well. If not a direct conversation, conduct your research online at websites such as TripAdvisor, Lonely Planet and other blogs that are specific to the type of travel you wish to engage in.

Hitchhike

Say you are not driving or caravanning, hitchhiking is a great way to save up on transport costs. While it may sound dangerous and unsafe, hitchhiking is increasingly becoming a common means of transport. Many countries, especially in developed and first-world nations, have spots where hitch hikers gather for flagging rides. You can find out such spots online.

Choose local eateries

This is something you may not necessarily find online. Food and living expenses constitute a significant portion of your travel budget. Rather than picking restaurants in central parts of a town or city, get advice from locals and choose a less touristic and local eatery. You will also get a more authentic culinary experience out of it.

These are some greats tips to follow for your next travel!
