“Hit the Road,” suggests psychologists, to find that “AHA” moment

April 11, 2015

The March April 2015 issue of Psychology Today has the following

recommendation on page 54:


A workshop in Bussana Vecchia, Italy


Outside a dress store in Oia, Santorini, Greece


Seaside restaurant in Mykonos, Greece


A residential street in the Haute Ville of Vaison-la-Romaine, east of the Rhone River and Avignon, France

“Certain forms of travel are set up to encourage mindshifts…

Travel disorients us and thus breaks us out of any mental rut

we may have been stuck in, ” says Eric Winer, whose book, The Geography of Genius,

explores the intersection of travel and creative leaps.  

When we travel, we are more receptive to novel ideas, new associations …

and we can “rewrite our noodles, and effectively become different people.”   

(quoted from the article by author Bruce Grierson)
