Traveling alone helps self-esteem and clears the mind: study confirms the benefits

  • It seems that explore new places alone is the best way to know a place, a people, a continent

Santa Maria - 27 May - What was a bizarre and unthinkable ideia, now is a fashion and a study conducted by the Queensland University of Technology confirmed its benefits

The research published by the magazine "International Journal of Travel and Tourism Research" was held in a sample of 24 participants who had just returned from a lonely holiday life on average nine days.

Most of the interviewed people preferred to travel without family member, friend or partner and those who returned said they are satisfied.

It seems that explore new places alone is the best way to know a place, a people, a continent.

Traveling alone strengthens self-esteem and ability to learn, thoughts become more flexible and clears the mind. It is a unique opportunity to work on ourselves, according to the study.
