It has been proven recently that holidays simply don’t serve to make us any happier. Whilst we may think that spending hundreds and hundreds of pounds every year on a week or two away will improve our moods and serve to make the drudgery of everyday life a bit more bearable, in reality, heading off on holiday does nothing but give us a bit of a boost beforehand when we are excited about our impending sojourn.
The reasons for this are numerous, but for many, the reality is simply that by heading off to a resort focused so firmly on our own culture, and being surrounded by people from our own country, we actually get very little change other than a bit of extra heat. We don’t actually get to experience anything new, and the best way to grow or to improve happiness is not with a break, but with a change.
Holidays can be experiences too though and things such as African safari holidays can give you the change you need to actually improve your general happiness. By experiencing something completely different you get to expand your worldview and understanding of the world in general and in turn, get to grow and simultaneously boost happiness. An experience such as a Kenya Safari can do just that.
Whilst many of us enjoy nothing more than sun, sea and sand, African safari holidays have all these and so much more, giving you views of completely different cultures along with a complete change in scenery that you simply won’t get on a normal beach holiday.
Whilst a Kenya Safari may sound expensive, the chances are they won’t actually be that much more either, and the little extra you may pay will be more than recouped by the boost to happiness you will receive with such a new and unique experience.
