It broadens your outlook. A 2014 study from the Academy of Management Journal revealed that people who worked overseas were more imaginative and inspired than those stayed in the United States because of cultural immersion. Being exposed to different cultures and identities means that you’re naturally more likely to integrate with the locals, allowing you to think outside of the way that you usually would, and bouncing between different ideologies and ideas, aka ‘cognitive flexibility’. The more cognitively flexible you are, the more creative you are! Plus, you might learn a new language and sample some authentic food in the midst of it all. Psychologists have found that learning increases our brain activity, making us happier, especially when we’re learning something we enjoy.
Immersing yourself in your holiday destination gives you the opportunity to get off social media. A 2016 study from the University of Pittsburgh showed that the more time we spend on social media; the more likely we are to develop depression. Also, the amount of time you spend on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media apps has a direct correlation to whether or not you feel stressed or happy. Social media has also been associated with low-self esteem. Give yourself a social media detox; enjoy every single bit of here and now.
Being at one with nature can actually improve your mental clarity. In a 2015 study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology, researchers discovered that people who looked at a photo of nature for 40 seconds had improved focus and performance when completing their next task. Plus, it’s the perfect environment to take a breather, let go of stress and tension, and have some quality ‘me’ time.
