Why A Solo Travel Trip Is Good For Your Well-Being

A whopping 72% of American women are traveling alone on vacations, often up to three times a year, and cite amongst their reasons the freedom and independence that a solo trip entails.

Whether you take numerous long weekends away in a year or plan a yearly trip of a lifetime, traveling has many benefits to the mind, body and soul.

Despite the challenges that you can encounter on your travels and concerns about traveling safely as a woman, there’s nothing quite like rediscovering yourself and enhancing your well-being through a well-planned adventure.

Gives you freedom

Whatever your traveling style: from luxury airlines to a backpacking adventure or hitting the open highway on a road trip, there’s little doubt that traveling offers you unbounding freedom to do what you want, whenever you want. Just imagine driving down the Californian coast in a vehicle of your choice, seeing the world through fresh eyes and letting go of all the usual, everyday stresses from work or home life.

There are no limits to your traveling experience, except maybe what you can afford, and a solo adventure can help to put your life perspective.

Boosts your well-being

Setting off on a solo traveling crusade can improve your overall well-being in many ways, and benefit you for years to come. The ability to face the daily challenges that traveling throws up can help the brain’s health through making decisions and learning new things, such as a language or skills.

In addition, traveling alone will inspire self-confidence through facing situations where you are forced to believe in yourself because there’s no one else to rely on. Furthermore, you’ll learn to enjoy your own company, enhanced by the stimulation of new surroundings.

Enhances physical health

After a few days of traveling solo, you’ll actually start to feel your body beginning to relax, having been away from the usual stresses from back home.

I may have just found the absolute perfect gift for any man or boy in your life! These stunning 1:18 scale metal diecast model cars are mindblowing and I was shocked when I saw the price! There is a model for every car ever made I think. lol (click the pic above or here to see what I mean!)

Whether you’re a city lover or nature lover, spending time sightseeing or trekking for many miles a day will help you lose weight, reduce heart problems and boost your physical health. As a solo traveler, you’re much more likely to throw yourself into activities which can often stretch your physical well-being for the better.

While solo travel isn’t always easy, the rewards far outweigh the challenges, and even if you embark on smaller, local trips the decision always remains yours, and anything can happen.

I personally recommend Athena Women's Herbal Formula from Lost Empire Herbs. It's a blend of 7 Chinese and Ayurvedic Herbs designed to help balance hormones, boost energy, reduce fatigue and nourish the body and skin all naturally! I've never, ever found anything that makes me feel better. I literally felt different the first hour I took it.

Lastly, I'm starting to tell other women about a health newsletter that I've benefited immensely from and that I highly recommend. I think you might like it, too.

It's completely free and I've learned soooo much from it!

My hubby and I are constantly on the road. After over 40 countries I became an editor of the Travel Section at Independent Femme, and I'm more interested in seeing even more new places than ever. Feel free to drop me a line to let me know which destination you'd like to see featured next!

I get asked a lot: where are you right now?

Currently, I'm in Cambodia (and loving it!)
