How is Traveling good for health?

Why is Traveling good for health?
First of all, If you are a traveler, I don’t think so you need an answer to this. In case, you are not a traveler, here’s an answer for you.

The only answer to how to cure for depression, according to my personal experiences is TRAVEL. Traveling, by far is the best and the easiest way to stay happy all the time. I don’t think so I’ve ever seen a traveler sad on any journey.

I meet a lot of travelers on the trips and discuss my life with them and learn about theirs and never have I ever heard pain from anyone.

Traveling is a very natural thing that us humans have been doing since the beginning of mankind. Earlier, the humans used to travel to far locations by foot and found it really amusing. Today, we have a lot of transport options that have made our journeys easy and less time-consuming.

Traveling makes one escape the reality and his regular life and get into something that is more amazing, beautiful and full of good people.

Traveling allows one to experience the unexplored territories and makes one more independent towards life. If you wanna beat depression, beat it the right way.

Traveling is my only answer to sadness and believe it, you’ve gotta try it too.

How Can Travel cure DEPRESSION?

To put it into simple words, Depression is a state of constant sadness and the only way this sadness can be killed is through exciting things.
Traveling is one of the most exciting things one has to have in his/her life.

When we travel, there are generally two kinds of places we visit
Peaceful places, somewhere where there is absolute silence and very few people around.
Crowded Places, somewhere with people all around partying and having fun with a great crowd.

For people in depression, peaceful places are like Heaven. If you are at a place where there is absolute silence and very few people, your mind goes into deep thoughts and your brain actually starts exploring whats inside of you.

This is how people find out who they really are. The loudest questions of life are often answered in absolute silence.

Some of the top places to find peace are :

1. Kasol, Himachal Pradesh

This town in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh is a treat to the eyes and believe it or not, once you reach here, going back is gonna be tough. It is so silent and beautiful that one can keep looking at the sky all day and night with no one to interrupt.

2. Rishikesh, Uttarakhand

Rishikesh is the origin of Hindu belief of Bhakti(Devotion) with River Ganges cutting through it. Rishikesh is also known for its adventure sports like Bungee Jumping and River Rafting.

It was like its just me and my soul, for the first time, spending time together. This is one of m favorite places to find peace.
