Research consistently shows that travel is good for your health. So book that ticket and check out our infographic for five health benefits below:
Increase Heart Health: Adults who take vacation at least twice a year, were less likely to die of heart attacks or any other coronary cause.
Be Happier: People who don't travel are more likely to suffer from depression. Frequent travelers are less stressed and have improved psychological functioning.
Stay Smart: Traveling keeps the mind sharp and increases creativity. Experiencing new cultures, foods, languages, and currencies maintain healthy cognitive function.
Boosts Immune System: Traveling exposes the body to different kinds of bacteria and viruses. This exposure strengthens your body' immune system.
Keeps You Fit: There is no better way to reach 10,000 steps a day than traveling. Hiking, biking, and lots of physical activity often take place when you're traveling.
