Why travelling makes us more creative?

When it comes to creativity many people may believe that it is something that one is born with. It is believed to be inherent and cannot be acquired. However, new studies have shown that this is not the right concept and that creativity can be learnt and taught.
The studies have shown that people that travel a lot tend to be more creative than those that remain in their birth place. The people that travel and gain education in the foreign lands tend to have better insight about various things. This is probably because they a have imbibed various cultures that give new shape to their cognitive behaviour.

travel makes us more creative

There are many reasons that help in boosting the creative nature in a person:
• Travel creates more synapses in brain: when one sees new places, experiences new cultures and comes across new ideas there are new chemical connections established in brain and that leads to a more flexible cognitive thinking. This flexibility helps the mind to jump instantly between two or more ideas depending on the exposure that the person that undergone.
• Travel helps people become more accepting: if you keep living in one place and meet only a few people there is no scope of getting exposed to the ideas and thinking that you have never heard of before. This makes the mind of a person limited. Whereas, the people that come across various ideas, people and culture come to understand that there are many ways of looking at one thing. The person develops cultural as well as mental flexibility and does not become stubborn in his approach towards an idea whether it is about religion, way of living or anything for that matter.
• Travel help you look at things from various perspectives: if you meet someone who has never gone out of their birth place they will believe staunchly in one thing and will never come to terms with something that is different from that. But the person who has travelled far and wide will know that there are various perspectives and each person has different perspective. They have better understanding of things
• Travel helps you create new things and ideas: when you travel you see and listen so many things. The new things that you see and the old ones from your culture make you a totally unique person who can give rise to new creative ideas better than a person who has never been to a foreign land.
