Congratulations! Dr. Mike Dow was featured on Orbitz Online, which went live on May 24, 2017.
In the feature, entitled “It’s proven travel is good for your mental health,” Dr. Mike discussed how traveling can challenge the brain and prevent the development of mental disorders. Dr. Mike stated, “Creating mental maps of new cities and new places, speaking in a foreign language, or learning how to use public transit in a new city all prevent the brain from aging [because] brains age when they are not challenged. The more we challenge it and change it, the more our brain creates new connections. Like a bank account, the more we have the more we can afford to lose. This can even help you to prevent symptoms of dementia as you get older.”
The feature credited Dr. Mike as a psychologist and author and included a direct link to Dr. Mike’s website.
