Travel is a powerful way to heal the soul, cleanse the mind, and open the heart. Whether you spend your time in the middle of nowhere, on a secluded island, at a group retreat, or alone in a bustling city, being in a different environment has been known to be therapeutic to your mind, body, and soul.
Here are five ways traveling can heal:
1. Travel forces you to be present
Amazing things happen when you travel but you can only enjoy the experience when you’re wholly immersed in the present. Traveling to a foreign environment takes you out of your comfort zone and forces you to focus on what’s happening in the moment instead of what happened in the past. Your intuition sharpens when you’re soaking in the sounds, tastes, sights and smells of your new surroundings.
