‘Intention’ to define the future of travel

Travel is once again on the rise as restrictions loosen up all over the world. But now that those formative years have passed, travelling is about more than just getting away and having a good time. The Global Wellness Institute asserts that “the future of travel is intention.”But what exactly does it mean to travel deliberately or with intention? When we travel with purpose, we can have a more profound and transforming experience that enables us to connect with our inner selves, families, and larger communities.INTERGENERATIONAL TRAVELAccording to Dr Jason Culp, research and development director at an international wellness resort, travelling with family and friends to foster strong relationships and build positive memories is slowly becoming a trend. In fact, research shows that positive family interactions have health benefits for both old and young, the former offering new perspectives and vitality and the latter sharing wisdom and experience.REDEFINING PURPOSEThe last two years have been challenging and have left many questioning their goals, priorities and what brings meaning to life. The wellness industry has embraced this intention by offering various retreats that guide guests through a constructive process of redefining and rebuilding.REGENERATIVE TOURISMIn regenerative tourism, travellers not only do not harm but leave a positive impact on the environment and community they’ve visited.For example, forest walks have been shown to lower inflammation and reduce blood pressure. The microbiome of soil impacts our own internal microbial ecosystem and can promote healthy immune function. Sunlight exposure supports vitamin D production, enhances mood, and helps regulate sleep.
