Travelling involves exploring new places, meeting with new people, making new friends and gaining new experiences. Because of travelling one gets to know deeply about the history, culture and background etc of the people of a certain place. According to studies, travelling also improves the overall health of an individual. Hence travelling as a therapy is also recommended by doctors nowadays. Apart from this travelling has other benefits also :-
– Improves Communication Skills
Travelling often leads to the areas where a only a certain language is spoken. Here you learn how to communicate with the people of different language by asking them about the way to your destination or about the nearest place of interest.
– Improves Social skills
Travelling also enhances the social skills of an individual, as while travelling you have to mingle with people of different culture and ethnicity. Here mixing up with the locals helps a lot in finding a good budget hotel or a good restaurant.
– Peace of Mind
Travelling gives you a disconnect from the normal stressful monotonous routine. It helps you to focus on your goals in life and helps in solving the problems as you get the required time to introspect.
– Increases Creativity
While exploring new places one gets out of his/her comfort zone and it is believed that getting out of the comfort zone enhances one’s creativity as the thoughts become more clearer.
– Enhances Tolerance Level
Travelling leads you to unknown places where you might not be comfortable in staying or eating. Here travelling increases your tolerance level as you adjust with the situation as no other option is available.
– Boosts up your Confidence
Going to the unknown places increases the confidence level and the ability to cope up with the obstacles. This makes you a more confident person.
– Better Real life Education
Going by the saying that ‘real experience has no substitute’. Meeting with people from different religions and cultures provides an education which one cannot get by reading books.
– Increased Bonding
Travelling with your friends and family enables you to spend quality time with each other which in turn leads to increased bonding.
However if not planned carefully travelling can also become a nightmare. For patients, if you forget to carry your prescribed medicines then it would lead to a nasty situation. So preparing a proper checklist, planning the tour in advance is always a good idea. So keep these things in mind and get ready to explore the new places. All the best!
