7 Reasons Why Traveling Makes You Happy
Traveling Makes You Happy, Sometimes we need a little push to travel. Becoming happier is probably the best reason to pack up and go.
Here are 7 reasons why we should travel the world more and why we can become happier.
get to know new cultures – because happiness is contagious
The best way to understand the world is to discover new cultures. Everywhere in the world, on every mountain, behind every river, among all the forests, a new interesting culture is waiting for us. New cultures can enrich us and give us a whole new worldview. Tasting new food, experiencing new traditions, and dancing to new dances are all experiences we can have on the road.
Whether we walk our way in hiking boots, sandals, or high heels is irrelevant. The important thing is to always remain open to new things to broaden our perspective on the world.
learning a new language – sharing happiness with international friends
Where and when does one learn or improve a language faster than abroad? Sometimes we have to jump over our shadows to approach foreign people to get the perfect practice for a language. In the beginning, it is a big step, but with time it becomes smaller and smaller. Until we can have a fluent conversation in different languages completely naturally and without difficulty.
The experience of exchanging ideas about exciting and unusual topics with people all over the world is especially wonderful and worth the adventure.
gain self-confidence – radiate happiness
Every trip is an adventure with new challenges coming our way. We are in a whole new environment, we are among a whole lot of new people and we no longer wake up every morning in our comfort zone. Everybody knows it probably that one has been in a situation on vacation that would have been completely different at home. In these moments we develop further and discover new sides of ourselves.
On a trip, we naturally also experience negative moments that challenge us. By overcoming these moments, we become braver, more self-confident, and get to know ourselves.
volunteer abroad – become happy by helping
Volunteering abroad is not traveling in the original sense, but it brings the same benefits, if not more. We learn to speak a language better and we learn to understand cultures better. We jump over our shadows and build self-confidence. So we can share the happiness we experience while traveling.
At the same time, we help other people, animals, or nature. Volunteering not only helps others but also ourselves because it is an experience for life.
making international friends – because friendship is just another word for happiness.
Friends you travel with or friendships you make during a trip are usually friendships forever. All the memories and all the experiences you have together are special and bonded together. Being on the road in the world means being exposed to yourself and your thoughts, this intensifies the emotions. Especially in a group or a partnership, traveling together often leads to greater cohesion. Because with our tasks we grow together. And what is more practical for the future than a trip to visit friends all over the world?!
learning for it – knowledge makes happy
As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, a clever person finds the best education while traveling.
We learn best when we see and experience it with our own eyes. During a journey, we do not learn from books, from our teachers, or our parents. On our way, we experience knowledge. When we jump from landmarks to museums or art galleries, we gather the most memorable memories and the longest-lasting knowledge. After our travels, we report back on our newly learned knowledge and recall everything again, which has a lasting effect and allows others to share in our knowledge.
become adventurous – adventurers accomplish great things
Even if we don’t think of ourselves as being brave, everyone has a different way of doing something daring. Remember how exciting the first time you skied down a mountain was? The first time you snorkeled and sawfish in all colors? Or even the first time you boarded a plane?
Have you dared to do anything more since then? For some, being brave means climbing a mountain, jumping out of a plane, or feeding sharks. For others, being brave means leaving home and going on a journey. But in the end, everyone who dares to try something new is brave.
