How Travel Increases Life Satisfaction

September 2, 2012 995

As millions hit the road this holiday weekend, we bring you a Journal of Travel Research study on how leisure travel has a significant impact on overall life satisfaction–including family life, cultural life, love life and more–along with important implications for tourism managers:

The goal of the research reported in this article was to develop a model describing how positive and negative affect associated with specific experiences of a travel trip influence tourists’ overall sense of well-being (life satisfaction). The model is based on the theoretical notion that a travel trip influences life satisfaction through tourists’ experiences of positive and negative affect associated with a recent tourist trip couched within various life domains.

How Does a Travel Trip Affect Tourists’ Life Satisfaction?” was published in the May 2011 issue of the Journal of Travel Research by M. Joseph Sirgy of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, P. Stephanes Kruger of North-West University, and Dong-Jin Lee and Grace B. Yu, both of Yonsei University.
