Traveling Makes Us Happier!

Money still can’t buy happiness, but traveling can! It’s always been pretty obvious that travel makes us happy, but one needs money to buy wondrous, inspiring travel experiences. Ergo, money can buy happiness.
Winnie So, writer for the CNN, found that travel can actually make us happier, because it promises us the self-discovery needed to reach the pinnacle of Abraham Maslow’s view of the human hierarchy of needs. Travel makes us happy, because it offers us the opportunity to step outside our well-worn, self-constructed, plebian realities and provides a platform to explore and practice our ideal visions for ourselves -- who we might be if we weren’t married to our fears and anxieties about safety, security and status. 
Next time you’re debating purchasing a new pair of diamond earings versus a trip around the world, you might want to reflect back at what Winnie So had to say. If traveling can make us happier, then we sure think it’s what we should be spending our money on!
