Everyone needs to take more vacations.

In fact, there's plenty of research, data and evidence that Americans are some of the most overworked in the world.

But there's more to going on vacation than you may realize.

Sure, you can take a staycation at any time. Avoiding connecting flights, updating your passport, or worrying about getting immunizations for other countries.

To travel means to become globally aware and educated. You can have lots of money in the bank, but if you aren't culturally rich, you're missing out!

Even if you don't have someone to go with, you should still plan your next mini-trip to somewhere soon.

Traveling around the world, meeting new people, trying new food, and exploring different cultures are some of the most eye opening experiences a person can have.

Traveling allows you to see parts of the world you might have never known existed and makes you appreciate all of the Earth's beautiful features.

Traveling is good for the soul, but it impacts people in different ways. In face, one study says that it's good for your health. Travel and longevity go together.

Each zodiac sign is drawn to hitting the open road or flying high in a plane, but it is good for them for different reasons.

Maybe there has always been a place on your travel bucket list that you've been dying to go to, or maybe you hope to one day spontaneously book a flight to somewhere tropical.

Either way, traveling and seeing the world is one of the best things to do for every zodiac sign at some point in their life.

Here is why travel is so good for your heart and soul, by zodiac sign.

Keep this is mind when trying to decide if you should stay home or see the world before the summer ends.

Viewing the world for what it is and seeing new sights can only bring more joy to your life.

Although, keep in mind that traveling is only good for you as long you make time to relax.
