have you ever had something really important to do but lacked the creative inspiration to complete it? 😭 this one is for you! 🙌🏻

#tdil going travelling makes you a more creative individual ✈️

no, really, science said so 😳 this isn’t some kind of weird “take all the gap yar drugs” or anything like that … new research actually says this is a thing 😎

how does it actually help though? well, according to recent research by scientists and psychologists, going travelling apparently helps to create new synapses in the brain and promotes neuroplasticity 🧠

it’s all down to experiencing new languages, views, smells, tastes, etc 😊 getting to experience all of these new and interesting things help to create new pathways in the brain and deep connections between different items of brainy goodness 👍🏻

it’s called ‘cognitive flexibility’ and it’s basically the brain’s ability to jump between different ideas … possibly the most important part of being creative 😎

now, there’s more to this than just going on holiday for a week 🙄 apparently that doesn’t work 😅 … instead, researchers say that you should go somewhere and live amongst the locals … working with local fisherman and stuff like that 🎣

it’s all about experiences! 😁 maybe going on a ‘gap yar darling’ isn’t all that much of a dos after all 🤔 holiday anyone? 😏

byeeee 😘 #tdil
