Can travel really make you a better person?

Greece ● 24 October 2017
 

It is scientifically proven that traveling is beneficial for human health. It lowers the risk of death, relieves stress, keeps you fit and boosts your immune system. These are not the only benefits of travelling. Can travel really make you a better person? Psychologists answer yes. Read here why.

Happy traveller

The effect of travelling in our character is undisputable. Travelling improves our character in a way that you can't understand if you are not a fan of journeys. The top benefit of travelling is that is offers us new experiences, new pictures, new things to do. Nothing is more boring than doing the same thing over and over again. Daily routine can kill everything: our creativity, our passion for life, the relationship with our partner. By travelling, we discover new places, gain foreign experiences, escape from everyday routine. That enhances our creativity and gives us motivation to chase our dreams.

When travelling, we bond with other people and go out of our comfort zone. We can test our strength, our ability to plan things and our adjustment when we have to face a challenge. There is no better boost for our self confidence than making achievements we didn't know we could make. Creativity and self confidence are the keys to a happy life than fulfils our expectations. The energy you have after a journey is something that can't be described by words. It is like being another person. Without stress, anxiety and depression, like having thrown away all of your problems. Can you imagine how that can affect your personality? A calm, relaxing person, who is aware of his abilities, has relieved stress and can face the problems rationally, is definitely a better person, a good friend, a loving spouse.

Travelling makes you also more flexible. You understand that you can't control everything. You learn how to let things go and adapt in difficult situations. Life has not always a strict schedule. It is better to go with the flow, life knows better than you. This precious life lesson is everything you need to feel happy and less anxious. Remember that the next time you will react like a control-freak.

Furthermore, travelling with the persons we love reminds us of the things we admire and adore in them. These small things we forget when being lost in our world and our daily routine. During our vacation, we can again appreciate the small things that make us happy. Ingratitude is the securest way to unhappiness. Being grateful for everything you have can not only make you happier but also a more caring person, someone who wants to help other people and being there for his/her beloved ones.
