Travelling can be very beneficial to your overall wellbeing and can be just what you need to get out of a slump and create meaningful experiences. 

New experiences and new places will benefit your mental health by helping to build better connections with both people and the environment around you. Whether you choose to travel locally within a nearby region or overseas and spend time in another country, it can all be beneficial for your wellbeing.

Benefit your mental wellbeing


Travelling and getting out and about is great for your mental health. It can help you reset priorities and/or negative thought patterns by stepping out of your normal routine and your comfort zone. Travel can allow you to see new scenery which can be great to destress and bring an overall sense of calm into your life. The skills you learn through experiences are also great for improving your mental strength and creative capacity. Your mental health is very important and travel could be a great solution for you to have a break and reset.

Build connections

Travel allows you to build connections with people that you might not have otherwise. As you travel to new places and have new experiences you will connect with new people and communities, you might have never had the opportunity to before. Connections help to keep life interesting and these new connections can help challenge you or support you, both being great for your wellbeing. Travel not only creates connections with others but also with yourself. Experiences in new places can be great for self-discovery and to learn your own strengths about yourself that you may have not previously realised.

Spend time in nature

Spending time in nature can create deeper connections to the earth that help you to feel grounded. Being in the natural environment has been linked to feelings of joy and calmness and has so many positive impacts on your wellbeing 

Our top tip:

Take a minute to observe the little things – like a fresh wind blowing through your hair or the grass in between your toes – to help you feel more connected to nature and the world around us. When planning meaningful travel, outdoor experiences can be a great place to start.
