Traveling is a great stress buster.

Traveling is a great stress buster.

The stress of work and daily demands can distract us from what we find to be actually meaningful and interesting says Dr. Tamara McClintock Greenberg, a San Francisco-based clinical psychologist and author of Psychodynamic Perspectives on Aging and Illness.

Thus, taking a break from the daily hustle and bustle is essential for your mind to relax, recharge and rejuvenate.

Traveling promotes happiness and helps you take your mind off stressful situations. This leads to lower cortisol levels, making you feel more calm and content.
