“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.”
People who experience varieties of culture are able to assimilate into their work environments better and move ahead of the competition.
At the end of the day, it’s all about personality. And that’s not something they can teach you in school, kids. You’ve got to seek that out yourself. And what better time to do it than on your days off?
The United States Travel Association reports taking trips outside of your normal daily routine makes you happier in many aspects of your life that people tend to lose sight of over time.
Apparently, a short trip is not only good for your peace of mind, but quality of life as well. The association reports things like blood pressure, heart rate and levels of epinephrine (a stress hormone) rapidly decline after just one to two days on vacation.
Happy body, happy life. But, the benefits from traveling as much as possible don’t just stop there.
