Most people find it enjoyable to travel, and the reason is that this kind of lifestyle brings lots of merits. It is no secret that travelling can be stressful sometimes. Packing up the luggage, figuring out all the essentials and having this feeling that you forgot something slumbering through your mind. But it all pays off the moment you open your beer, sit back and enjoy the place you just arrived at.
Travelling brings a lot of improvements to your health: mental and physical. But it is important to differentiate the travelling we do for pleasure and essential. Both of those options have very different approaches and outcomes. In this article we are going to talk about the top five scientifically proven health benefits of travelling and especially vacationing.
With all the hustle and bustle of the modern world mental health becomes the main priority in our lives. The constant overworking and hectic lifestyle can cause damage both to our physical and mental health. And it is a widely known fact that the overall condition of our body comes from our mind, so it is important to treat it with kindness. Travelling can help you take your mind off unimportant things and fully submerge into nature. You can practice mindfulness and meditation for better results and ultimate relaxation. For that kind of experience, it is also useful to stay at a place that can keep you calm and happy, like this peaceful glamping
When we are on vacation it is also easy to get into routine and not let go of the hectic lifestyle. And this is when it is worth pampering ourselves. For example, go to a nice spa or get a relaxing Thai massage. All those procedures will make you feel good about yourself since your body would feel the love you are giving it. Joining a yoga class provided on a campspace is a good idea too ;)!
The pollution of the air is a never-ending topic these days. Most of the people live in the city and it can be quite harmful for the lungs. So, schedule yourself a break at least once a year somewhere away from major cities. You can stay in a cabin in the forest or perhaps even go camping in the mountains, where the air is crispy and fresh. It will help you breathe more openly and clean this very valuable organ of our body.
It is a fact that our body responds to the environment we are in. So, if you are in a position of constant stress or pollution, it is hard for our body to produce healthy cells. This is a cause of many autoimmune diseases that have increased in recent years. So, if you are at a point of recovery from a surgery or even a trauma, it is recommended to change your living conditions to the more natural ones. Of course, not everyone can afford to move to a different place, it is also possible by spending at least the initial recovery days in nature. For example, book a comfortable camping trip near your city and enjoy the peace and quiet.
It is also easy to get stuck in a constant routine and find a so-called ‘creativity block’. Since it is also a part of our overall health and is wildly influenced by our mental state. This can be one of the most prominent health benefits of travelling since you can see the results almost right always. There is just something about changing your environment and your mental patterns, that help to get that much needed creativity boost. And where there is creativity, there is motivation.
Overall the health benefits of traveling are related to nature, which is the best source of human health. You can just plan a stay in nature and do absolutely nothing in a hammock. Just relax and unwind. To get your blood pumped (healthy too ;) it might be a good idea to plan at least one outdoor activity. You might feel tired afterwards, but it’s worth it and it’s the good kind of tired. That moment in the hammock afterwards will feel even better!
Traveling to improve your health is great, but don’t forget about the footprint you leave! You don’t have to fly around the world to find great natural spots. Just outside the city, there is nature too. Good for you and for the world!
