Traveling is just a waste of money? That’s an ancient statement! In fact, traveling has many benefits in everyday life
Lately, traveling activities are increasingly being heralded. This is inseparable from the increasing need for traveling for most people from time to time.
Traveling is an activity that is considered capable of providing a refreshing relaxing effect. Therefore, it is not surprising that many people are vying to travel as soon as possible and have fun.
Do you know? that traveling apart from being a fun thing can also have other positive effects on a broad scale. As in the journal written by Roger Kami, a president and CEO of the United States travel association, entitled “Travel Effect: A Call to Lead, a Means to Do So” there are at least 6 things that make traveling necessary and has many benefits. .
In addition to these journals, various studies over the past 30 years have shown consistent results that individuals will feel better about themselves and are more able to cope with stress after traveling. An example in a 2011 study of 3,500 travelers showed that there was a huge benefit that they felt, namely being happier by traveling more often.
Fresh air, shady trees, gurgling water, beach waves, sunshine/sunset and all the new atmosphere that we encounter when traveling does not rule out the possibility of giving satisfaction and serenity. The existence of fresh air can supply new oxygen within us. In addition, the beautiful scenery can also be a moodbooster that can arouse the passion for life to be more alive.
Reduce the risk of disease
We write that apart from stress, traveling is also able to reduce the risk of diseases such as heart attacks and strokes. In a study of more than 12,000 men who had a high risk of heart disease, it was found that people who traveled more had a lower risk of heart disease and stroke. In addition, the journal also stated that traveling can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Build and strengthen brotherhood ties
In addition to the benefits for health, traveling is also useful for improving social relations with others, especially with family.
In the journal, we mention that traveling with family can improve family relationships, develop family communication and increase cohesiveness in the family.
In general, many people are reluctant when they have to travel with family, especially teenagers. Whereas based on the research, it was found that more than half of the teenagers included in the survey felt that there was strength and closeness that was built in the family after traveling with family. In addition, 93% of teens describe traveling with family as an opportunity for quality time with their parents.
Another benefit of traveling in a wider and interesting dimension is that traveling also has a role in the process of maturation of each individual. In a long journey, we are often required to be able to make decisions correctly and quickly. This is what makes traveling as a means of education for self-development because the most valuable learning is the experience itself.
We explain that by taking a trip or traveling and getting out of our daily routine, no matter how our journey is, traveling has the power to give us a fresh new view of what we have known before than anything else, which is ourselves. The point of this trip is that we are able to recognize who we really are.
Adding new insights
Traveling besides being able to be used for self-learning to become more mature, it can also be used as a tool to add new insights about science. When we visit a new place, there will definitely be new things that we encounter, such as culture, ethnicity, geography and so on. From there, we can indirectly recognize the culture and customs that developed in the new place we visited.
Build a spirit of leadership within
In our opinion, travel and leadership are complementary. Basically, traveling has a significant role as an effort to keep ourselves healthy, both physically, mentally and emotionally. According to him, these three things can bring us to actively build this world for the better.
