How Traveling Makes you Smarter

Updated: 4 days ago

It has been said that traveling is the best form of education, and there is a lot of truth to that statement. When you travel, you are exposed to new cultures, new languages, and new ways of life.

All of this exposure helps your brain to grow and expand. In addition, traveling can help you gain new perspectives on the world. And extended traveling can provide even more benefits than shorter trips.

Have you ever traveled and learned something that surprised you? I could go on and on about what I’ve learned by traveling - much more than I learned in history class - for sure. All of this can help to broaden your horizons and make you a more well-rounded person.

A Few Ways Traveling Can Make You Smarter

Boost your brain power


Traveling is the best way to help your brain stay sharp! One study showed that retired people who travel have 75% higher rates of mental stimulation and 82 percent greater ability "to get things done" versus 57%. The authors recommend businesses encourage the use of vacation time as a means of improving health & wellness within workplace settings - take note employers everywhere!.

Word mapping about Creativity


If you want to be more creative, spend time in other countries. The smells and tastes of a new culture will stimulate your imagination while adapting to different sights increases the flow within yourself!

It's a well-known fact that travel broadens your perspective on the world and helps to enhance many aspects of life. One recent study found an increased number of job offers for people who had traveled abroad as opposed to those staying at home, even if they were from similar backgrounds! The researchers said this may be due in part to how multicultural engagement influences learning about new cultures while away--which can lead you down paths never before explored with fresh perspectives coming back with an improved intelligence level.

Travel the world


The ability to stay afloat in an unfamiliar environment is an important skill for any person that has ever had their sense of safety shattered. It can be scary at first, but when you're thrown into the world with no knowledge about how things work or what's expected from you - your skills are put on display; showing just how strong and capable we really are.

A recent study found that people who traveled frequently were more intelligent than those who didn't. The study also found that the more countries a person visited, the higher their IQ score was. I don’t know about you - but I am ready to pump up my IQ- come join me.

The idea behind this research was simple: Every person should experience something new at least once in a while; it opens up doors wider than any safety pin could ever open on its own.

When you are ready to go back to school and start learning by traveling - give me a shout and we'll make sure your destination fits your educational curriculum (and your budget.

Bon voyage,
