Traveling is good for your health

Stress is one of the things that cannot be avoided in our daily lives.

When stress becomes too overwhelming and starts to interfere with our ability to do things normally, we must find the best way to release it.

Stress is one of the things that cannot be avoided in our daily lives. It is important for us to learn how to handle it so that we will be able to be productive, especially at work.

One way to relieve stress is to explore new places. Traveling can be great fun. It enables you to discover new cultures, places and gives you exciting new experiences.  Gaining a new perspective allows you time to think, reflect on choices made and how we can adjust to keep this positive feeling going in our daily lives. 

Whether it’s a quick weekend getaway or a week cruise, these adventures will surely relieve your stress and benefit your health.

Here’s a list of benefits that traveling can have on your health:

It can create a stronger immune system

Taking vacations can cause the release of endorphins to naturally interact with your body,  making you feel more energized and relaxed. We all have heard the saying that “laughter is the best medicine” though it is not completely understood, medical professionals still consider it to have significant benefits to maintaining health. 

Traveling can have a positive effect on a persons outlook in life, sense of well being, and energy. In fact, happier people are less susceptible to sickness. A recent study conducted on the immune system activity resulted in a significant fluctuation depending on the happiness of the participants.  

It can improve brain health

Health professionals have been promoting the importance of brain health since the brain loses elasticity as we age. The ability of the brain to modify its connections or re-wire itself, as it loses elasticity can lead to memory loss and impair our ability to learn new things.

Traveling can help expand our learning through meeting new people, culture and landscapes. Through travel we can become more creative thinkers, open-minded and innovative. 

Travel memories enable us to sharpen our mind and have a more resilient outlook in life. 

It decreases your chance of having heart diseases and makes you fit

Some types of vacations may include increased  physical activities throughout the day. This may include hiking, climbing flights of stairs, swimming,  scuba diving, and many other heart-pounding activities. Traveling promotes better physical health too, helping us in lowering our blood pressure and the risk of heart disease. Just be sure to get travel insurance before you enjoy these various activities.

According to the World Heart Federation, moderate exercise lowers your risk of heart attack by 30% to 50%.

Taking time off to travel gives us a breather from our hectic schedules. People who make time for little vacations are less stressed and anxious.  Science agrees that you are doing yourself a big favor when you embrace traveling.
