“Don’t be too hard on yourself,” says my best friend Alex, “You have very high expectations and you expect yourself to be perfect often.

How to feel fabulous while traveling internationally

2020-04-22T15:13:09+00:00

Traveling internationally is the most effective mood lifters in the world because it can release endorphins in your body, thereby creating feelings of euphoria, reduces stress, and blocks pain. It is reported that travel and dancing release more endorphins than any other activity! If you can’t go to the gym…. Not every hotel has a gym, so if you can’t go to the gym when you are traveling internationally, ten minutes of deep breaths and stretching makes a difference as well!

Further examination shows that the modern lifestyle in western countries is not really supporting mental health these days (think social media and smartphones). Therefore, a large number of psychologists are recommending various ways to reduce stress, and one of these effective methods is international travel. Travel can cure anxiety disorder, including hypervigilance. According to Professor Kevin Gournay (author of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Recovery after accident and disaster), physical exercise may cure hypervigilance because exercise burns off arousal. Clearly, international [...]
