Reasons Why You Should Travel NOW!
Travel not only releases your everyday stress, but it simply enhances one’s overall life. Travel let’s you experience something unique and exciting at the same time. It even makes you independent especially when you go into a totally different culture where only a small amount of people can speak and understand English. You learn about their culture, their attitude and their ways on how they deal with everyday life. it’s like solving a mystery in a very James Bondish way. There’s actually a lot of reasons why you should travel now. Here’s a list of some:
Traveling opens eyes, warms hearts & frees minds.
Travels makes you see life from the outside.
Being away from your daily work and to the same people you meet everyday is one way to expand your life. It also lets you release the stress that you are holding on to your daily life. It even helps you clear out your mind when facing a problem like a breakup from a relationship or a dead-end job.
Travel clears your mind.
With all the problems in life, we become so busy and entangled with it that we forget to enjoy and live our life. When we travel, especially for leisure, we clear out our minds and leave our problems behind. Some even find the solution while travelling. Travel gives us the clarity we need to refocus our lives on what’s important.
Travel reveals what and who you really love.
When traveling, you will surely miss everything you love – from your favorite food to your soft and comfy bed. You’ll also miss the people who are really important to you. Travel separates the acquaintances from those who are truly special.
Travel makes you more flexible and adaptable.
It is certain that a traveller will get into challenging situations. You can make the most detailed itinerary and plan the whole trip from sun up to sun down, but eventually you’ll still end up lost or confused. But don’t let this stop you. Every traveller goes through anger, denial, hopelessness and frustration, but you’ll learn to laugh at it in the end.
Travel makes you thankful in life.
Whether you travel in a 1st world or 3rd world country, it doesn’t matter. You will definitely experience people who have just one leg but can hike the great wall of China or can manage on far less in a year than you do in a month! There will be a moment where you close your eyes then you’ll experience an unknown great feeling and you will thank God for everything.
Travel increases your personality.
When was the last time you went out of your comfort zone, like ordering a food on a strange restaurant ex. A crocodile restaurant? You probably don’t remember huh..
When you travel, simply ordering food can be a task. You’ll find yourself unable to pick the right food and sometimes you can’t even communicate well with the waiter. But all of these experiences will increase your sociability and thinking power, so learn to embrace the challenge.
Travel makes you sociable.
Even if you’re a shy person or someone who interacts well with anybody, travelling will definitely hone your social skills. You will be forced to interact with many locals on that specific country, sometimes the challenge here is they can’t understand your language. Sometimes you’ll feel you’re in the Tower of Babel from the Bible.
Travel teaches you to do without.
At home we have our books, internet, hi-tech gadgets and food. You just can’t live without them.
When you travel, of course you cannot bring your very own HD TV, your lazy boy sofa or your PS4. If your going to a 3 joint countries in 2 weeks time, even your smartphone’s is no use. You cannot contact your friends because you have no signal and wifi connectivity in other countries are just hard to connect with. In the end, when you faced the challenges on your travel, you will surely say “OMG I can live without them!!!”.
Travel reconnects you to yourself.
If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, you become something else entirely.
-Ra’s Al Ghul
In the infamous quote above. You can see that Ra’s teaching Batman to become something new and unique. Batman travelled a lot for gaining different experiences that made him better. It’s basically the same on us. I’m not saying that if you travel a lot you’ll become batman, but you will definitely experience something new entirely..
When travelling, you’ll experienced both positive and negative feelings. At one point it will disappoint you, sometimes it will also give you a fabulous feeling. The best part about it is you won’t be the same when you return. So book your tickets now and enjoy the trip.
