Travel more to feel younger, ramp up your sex life
Monday April 4, 2016 8:55 AM, IANS

London: A recent study in Britain suggests that travelling could actually improve your health, help to lose weight, gain confidence, feel younger and even increase sex drive.

According to the survey conducted by Expedia, more than one million respondents said that travelling increased their sex drive. This is likely due in part to an increase in body confidence and improved mood, which makes them more predisposed for closeness.

"Travelling can help reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol. As stress and anxiety decreases, mood increases -- bringing many, often unexpected, positive benefits in how we perceive ourselves, motivation and productivity, and our general outlook on life," Linda Papadopoulos, who worked with Expedia on the study, said in a statement.

The study also revealed that for more than one million respondents, travelling helps to reduce weight. Travelling leads to a short burst of generally healthy behaviour and puts into a new routine which gives the chance to break unhealthy habits.

"Exposure to a healthy amount of sunshine is also believed to increase the brain's release of the hormone serotonin which is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused," added Papadopoulos.

The study also showed that more than two million respondents claimed that travelling made them more creative. Having a new experience inspires and increases levels of Serotonin that gives a more positive thought process in approaching creative challenges.

So if you are feeling depressed, creatively stunted, or anxious, or if your pores are clogged, or you are overweight, or you are just not having enough sex, the best thing you can do is go off and see the world - travel till you meet yourself.
