How Travel Makes Us Healthier

Spending Time Outdoors Can Make You Nicer.

A University of California-Irvine study found that looking up at the stars makes us nicer.

Lead researcher Dr. Paul Piff explained,
“Our investigation indicates that awe, although often fleeting and hard to describe, serves a vital social function. When experiencing awe, you may not, egocentrically speaking, feel like you’re at the centre of the world anymore. By diminishing the emphasis on the individual self, awe may encourage people to forgo strict self-interest to improve the welfare of others.”

Suddenly time stands still, if even for a moment, and we gain imagination.
