5 BENEFITS OF TRAVEL
It is a nice, sunny day and you are walking on a white sandy beach, listening to the gentle sounds of the ocean. You look up, tilt your head back, and breathe in the fresh, clean air. Ahh… You look around you and notice the vivid colors of nature and are grateful for this break in your normal, everyday routine. This is why you need to travel more in 2020.
Traveling is a fresh breath of air. It can almost be described as a nice, brisk air that you never knew you needed until you took it in. Just like air, it is an essential and a necessity to survive life. We live in a world where there are seven continents, 193 countries, and more than 6,000 languages spoken. Travelling allows you to step out of your own world and understand the world around by you by experiencing something new, something different.
Getting away from home and stepping outside of your usual routine is beneficial for both mind and body. The long-lasting personal benefits of visiting a foreign country far outweigh the costs and time to get there.
The great travel writer Pico Lyer said: “Travel is not really about leaving our homes but leaving our habits.”
Here are five ways that travel can enhance your life.
- Travel Sharpens the Mind
You’ve done your old routine for so many years that you could run through it on autopilot. Being dropped into a new environment engages a dormant part of your mind and gets those synapses firing again.
- A Shift in Perspective
“Nobody comes back from a journey the way they started it.” — Unknown
Being exposed to new places will greatly shift your paradigm and create a healthier perspective once you return back home.
- A Chance to Try New Things
“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
While you may branch out at home from time to time by trying new restaurants or splurging on expenditures, traveling kicks you out of the comfort zone and forces you, for better or worse, to try new things!
- Exercise and Sunshine
Sure, you could just go sweat in the gym under fluorescent lighting, but chances are that you’ll be much more active from day to day while on the road, especially when you stay at the beach.
- Come Home Renewed
After stepping away from home for a while, you’ll return with renewed energy, a new set of mental filters, and ready to take on the next big project or challenge. Call it a life reboot.
