Benefits of Traveling Abroad:
According to Adam Galinsky, a professor at Columbia Business School, visiting a foreign place and immersing yourself in their local environment (for instance, attending a 'snake boat' race in southern India or feasting on crispy tarantulas in Cambodia) boosts your cognitive flexibility. It also enhances "depth and integrativeness of thought," consequently giving a boost to your creativity. Galinsky is the author of various studies that look into the connection between creativity and international travel. It's essential to note that traveling stimulates creativity only when you engage with that place's local culture. Merely visiting a new city or a country isn't going to cut it.
