Travelling to get rid of monotony

Travelling is a great escape to get rid of a robotic life and learn something interesting in this hustling bustling life,. Through vivid exposure, it reaches various experiences of life.
People travel for various purposes, such as enjoyment, education, employment and exploring the niceties of the world. But a common benefit imparted by travelling is that it broadens the views and perceptions of people. It develops their understanding level and sharpens their ideas and thoughts regarding various cultures.
In contrast, for some people, it is a great opportunity to explore the beauty of nature and convert their negative thoughts to positive ones by praising the magnificent scenery of nature. Similarly, some people find it a medium to groom their personalities, enhance their confidence level and enrich their treasures of knowledge. It changes your personality and makes you decent, intellectual and independent. In short, travelling is not only beneficial for your physical health but also for your mental health.
It gives you self-confidence as well as the power to stick firmly to your vision or perspective. Lastly, it is not wrong to say that in one way or another, it inherits a new soul into your body.

Costly addiction

When we shop for, among other things, new clothes, home decor, art supplies and gadgets every once in a while, our brains perceive it as a reward and release the 'feel good' hormone, dopamine, which triggers a rush and immediately uplifts our mood. This is precisely why shopping is often called 'retail therapy'.
But this trick to achieve a quick and easy respite from the doom and gloom of life on particularly dull and depressing days can quickly become a compulsive behaviour, especially with the ease of online shopping which can be done from anywhere. It ultimately costs people a lot more than they bargained for - literally. Shopping addiction is not just trivialised but is also the most socially reinforced behavioural addiction. This must stop.
