We all know what travel gives us – the freedom, the experiences, the memories… But in which ways does travelling make us better people? Today on Bidroom Blog we will try to answer this question.
Anyone who has ever travelled abroad most likely had to deal with at least a small problem. Going to the doctor, losing property, overcoming language barrier or even simply getting lost are all problematic situations that can get even harder to deal with whilst in a foreign country. But after we manage to deal with that, we get better at solving all kinds of problems we may come across in our own backyard!
Becoming less stressed
Travelling can be relaxing, but let’s be honest, it can also be incredibly stressful (especially in the situations mentioned above). But however tough in the moment, it can be great long-term, since while on a vacation, and in generally very fun atmosphere, you prepare yourself for stress in daily life.
Noone can deny, that travelling makes us happier. We can meet great people and see beautiful places. It allows us to clear our minds and relax after a tough time at work or at school. We not only form memories to cherish but also experiences that make us wiser and more fun ourselves. Anybody bitten by the travel bug can confirm, that there’s no better source of endorphins than a great trip!
More open-minded approach
When you travel, you will have to meet new people, whether you want it or not. Often you will have to socialize in order to get by, especially when travelling solo. And whilst at first it can be very intimidating or even unpleasant, with time you will see the beauty of it. You’ll notice how many incredibly interesting people you meet, who you would have never spoken to normally. You realize that you should never judge a book by its cover and become more open and more tolerant towards others, and that is a wonderful quality to have!
At home you can avoid the small talk more easily than on holidays. That is why when you travel you become great at it! And the more you talk with interesting people, the more you like it, and the better at it you get. Not only do you realize you can have a meaningful conversation with nearly anyone, but you also start enjoying sharing your own thoughts and feelings with others much more, because you see how eye-opening it can be!
These are obviously only a few ways in which travelling makes us better. Best see for yourself just how amazing it can be, and just how much it will make you grow!
