Improving your well-being is one of the fundamental benefits of traveling.
Travelinghelps reduce the risks of heart attack and anxiety, while improving our brain health. Studies have been conducted that show that travel can have a positive impact on our heart health. However, traveling also makes you happier in another way.
According to a study by Amit Kumar, Matthew A. Killingsworth and Thomas Gilovich, from Cornell University, say that money spent doing something (called “experiential shopping”) leaves you with a longer-lasting sense of happiness than money spent on having something (called “material purchases”). One of the best things you can do for your mental health from time to time, especially if you're a busy college student with a night job or a young professional working 12-hour shifts, is to disconnect to recharge. Researchers discovered that even a short-term vacation (~3 days long) “regardless of the mode”, has significant, positive and immediate effects on the perception of stress, recovery, tension and well-being.
In addition, the beneficial effects last quite a long time after returning home. According to a study conducted by the World Commission on Aging and the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, in partnership with the United States,. Travel Association, travel decreases the risk of heart attacks and makes your brain healthier. The study found that men who take annual vacations are 30% less likely to die from heart disease, among other findings.
The importance of traveling ranges from reducing the chance of suffering from heart disease to relieving stress and anxiety. In addition to health benefits, traveling can also improve your creativity, your sense of happiness and satisfaction. Freya, please, never listen to those negative people who say something like that to you. I think it's very likely that some of them are very jealous.
The opportunity to travel for a year is beyond most people's reach and it's an incredible opportunity for you. It will enrich you for a lifetime. I think you'll come back much more advanced than any of your classmates, because you're learning and experiencing cultures at a very young age. It will make you independent and very strong and will create a mind that will not fail and will be sensitive to other cultures that surround you.
You will be a leader among your classmates. You will have an experience that is extremely valuable, which others will never possess. Do not let yourself be carried away by the opinion of these people when they have never been there or have done so or speak from any kind of experience, otherwise they would never tell you. Make new friends because these friends here aren't friends for you.
Everyone knows that traveling abroad enriches your life forever and that studying at home is much better than going to any public or private school. Children who are homeschooled score much higher than children who go to public or private schools. Children who are homeschooled are much more successful than children who graduated from public or private schools. These so-called friends would rather see you fail than encourage you to succeed.
I have traveled the world and I know from experience that you will be a success. Young people need to open their minds and see what's out there, what they're missing out on, and the experiences that can be gained simply by traveling and meeting new people. The advantage of traveling to a new place is that it forces you to face the unknown and think differently. While traveling offers you the opportunity to meet people, listen to music, taste food, touch the yellow stones of the pyramids.
I'm only 18 years old, but I travel alone all the time, always pursuing adventures, wanting to meet new people and experience new cultures. From reducing stress to reducing your chances of developing heart disease, the health benefits of traveling are enormous. It may seem like you have a lot of things to do, so you don't seriously consider these opportunities or you may dismiss them, as you plan to travel later in life. Traveling around the world and meeting people who live in different conditions and treat life differently is what really teaches you about the world.
“I feel especially trapped when I have to stay in the same place for too long without really being able to move and explore,” says Marta Estevez, travel enthusiast and co-founder of The Passport Memorandum. In high school and college, you're likely to receive some kind of encouragement to travel, study, or work abroad. I would recommend traveling at any age, but the sooner you can learn the lessons that travel teaches you, the better.
