Most of us (including Polarity Technologies’ team members) are looking forward to our next flight. Under these circumstances catching the next flight to Rome might not be the wisest thing to do. However, anticipation is the happiest part of a travel journey, according to nathab.com.
”According to a 2010 psychological study about the connection between anticipation and happiness that was published in the journal Applied Research in Quality of Life, just planning or anticipating your trip can make you happier than actually taking it. The authors of the study, researchers from the Netherlands, interviewed 1,530 people, including 974 vacationers, and found that the vacationers felt most happy before their trips.”
Long story short, if you can’t travel right now, schedule your next trip as this will give you almost equal pleasure and happy feelings. The internet nowadays enables us to get a good sense of the destination we are planning to visit. We can decide and plan beforehand nearly everything. This includes sights we would like to visit, museums, galleries, theme parks, restaurants and beach bars we would like to go to. We can even book the activities we wish to do on our trip, such as parachuting, scuba diving and safari.
You might be hesitant to book your flights without knowing for sure that the pandemic won’t ruin your plans, however most airlines have recently introduced penalty-free cancellation and changes on flights. So we can book our flight now and change it later if needed, for free. Same goes for hotels. Isn’t that awesome?
