Most people in the world have a strong desire to explore the deepest confines of the world. Unfortunately, many people are unable to do so due to financial constraints or because ‘it would be a waste of time’. However, the truth is that travel can have an incredible impact on your life. Don’t take my word for it though, even science can back me up on this!
I always wondered why people travelled so far and wasted so much time doing nothing in the name of relaxing and vacations,until i started travelling within my own home country.This really changed my perspective on how i viewed life and people,you cant imagine what some people go through in some regions just to earn a living and take care of their families until you travel and experience.One of the many things i really liked about travelling was that this is the best way to test yourself in terms of confidence and self esteem.It’s not always easy to travel and stay in an unfamiliar place where nobody knows you,you are likely to face so many challenges which come with a greater reward on the long run.Imagine if you travelled to a place where they speak a different language from the one you know or used to,you will still have to find your way around by trying to talk to people and getting to learn their language and once this is achieved you feel amazing and proud of yourself.
Travelling is the best way to learn and experience life since it exposes you to so many things that you can actually touch and relate with,compared to being in a classroom where you only get to see pictures and photos.Sometimes we tend to forget things that we’ve been taught in a classroom more often compared to the ones we’ve seen,touched and felt.This happens because travelling is fun and more enjoyable therefore it sticks on our minds.
This is also an opportunity for you to learn different languages and cultures.By learning somebody else’s cultural activities,it opens your mind,You will go back home with different nortions and possibilities,you will develop a wider view,and that will make you a better rounded global citizen.
According to my own observation i discovered that this is the best way to get in touch with yourself.Being in a foreign or unfamiliar place alone gives you time and space to think and that gives you insights into who you are.The foreign experiences also increase both cognitive flexiblity and depth and intergration of thought.This is the ability to make deep connections between desperate forms.
Life is a journey nobody can live alone therefore it’s necessary to build good relationships between people and strengthen friendships.The best way to do this is by travelling either with friends or family,this helps you to learn and love each other even more since you are both in a foreign place and you need each other more than before.Socializing is also very healthy to a human being,by travelling you are also able to socialize with different people and make new friends.
Conquering a fresh territory is exhilaring and one more reason for people to travel.You are able to relax and rejuvenate by letting sensations like the lapping water and the warmth of the sun,along with the sound of waves recharge your batteries.I usually travel just to escape a little bit from my ever demanding job,this helps my brain to calm down and relax and also create new ideas for my job.I always advice people to create time and travel as much as they can and within their financial capabilities inorder to relax their mind and boost their mood positively which according to physchology helps them live longer.
