Traveling Helps Boost Your Mental Health


Published on

Travel disrupts your assumptions and habitual patterns, it broadens the mind and encourages growth. It is a basic human desire. We’re a migratory species and it’s time to realise that pleasure is not the only consolation of travel. Getting away – and it doesn’t even matter where you’re going – is an essential habit of effective thinking. We travel because we need to – distance and difference are the secret tonic of creativity. And even when we get back home – it is still the same. It is something in our mind that has been changed. Trust me – it changes everything.
