It's no news that travel is good for your physical well-being, but a significant amount of scientific research suggests that exploring a new place can do wonders for your mental and emotional health.

It’s a great stress buster.
Travelling promotes happiness and helps you take your mind off stressful situations. This leads to lower cortisol levels, making you feel calmer and more content. “It also helps us reflect on our personal goals and interests.

It helps you reinvent yourself.
If you allow it, travel can expand your mind in a way you never realized was possible. Moreover, the valuable lessons you learn broaden your perspective, making you more aware and open to new things. I love travelling to places with different cultures because it forces you to think about your own. Exploring new homes can also give you a fresh start if you're recovering from a significant transition in your life.

It boosts happiness and satisfaction.
Besides the obvious fact that you don't have to go to work (and can legit eat pizza for breakfast), travelling allows you to step away from the daily grind. The new events and experiences help rewire your brain, boosting your mood and self-confidence.

It makes you mentally resilient.
Going and living somewhere where you feel excited and intimidated at the same time can help you toughen up mentally and emotionally.

It enhances creativity
According to Adam Galinsky, a professor at Columbia Business School, visiting a foreign place and immersing yourself in their local environment increases cognitive flexibility. It also enhances the depth of thought and consequently boosts your creativity.
