‘Once a year go someplace you’ve never been before.’ – Dalai Lama
There’s lots of time when travel is necessary for you and your business, but has it ever occurred to you that it’s also good for you? Here are five reasons why travel is always a good idea:
1. It’s proven to improve productivity & business performance.
Getting out of your regular surroundings can give you new ideas and new perspectives, generally improving productivity.
2. It lowers your stress levels.
It’s proven that seeing new things has a positive impact on the brain, even just seeing new roads and buildings does the trick.
3. You can make new business connections.
If you’re travelling with people you don’t already know well or are going to a trade show you’re guaranteed to make some new worthwhile connections. You’ll probably also learn some new tips or skills from talking to them.
4. It improves your problem solving skills.
Travelling creates new synapses in your brain, improving your brain capacity. As a result, you will think a little bit faster and be able to find solutions faster.
5. It improves teamwork.
When travelling together and staying together, your team is going to get to know each other better. The more people get to know each other, the better they work together as a team and the better they are communicating, which always benefits teamwork!
