Tired of the average, day to day, hustle and bustle of classes? Are your eyes crossing over after you've pulled an all-nighter and downed twenty cups of coffee? Do you need a break from the typical run-of-the-mill office job? The one where you sit in a chair all day and then come home and complain about your back hurting?
Well then get up, get out, and explore the world around you! Your mental and physical well-being depend on it!
Traveling not only makes you more creative and open-minded, but it also has tremendous health benefits (mind, body, and soul) that will help you live a more relaxed and happy life.
We all know that traveling requires a fair bit of physical exertion, with all of the sight-seeing and touring and wrong turns you’re bound to make. Tourists do a lot of walking during vacation so you get in some much-needed exercise by chasing after taxis or scaling ten flights of stairs in order to get to that to-die-for restaurant everybody talks about!
In fact, people who travel are more likely to try healthier new foods. Foreign foods are packed full of different spices and ingredients that our bodies aren’t accustomed to, giving us a wide range of new nutrients that can help our body run better and more efficiently. Trying new foods requires having an open mind and traveling gives this to us.
Not only does traveling benefit you physically, it also benefits your mental clarification. It makes you fearless! Stepping out of your comfort zone can be pretty nerve-wracking and frightening, but once you get out there and actually experience something you’ve never tried or go to a place you’ve never been before, nothing can hold you back!
It also has a major impact on your performance at work and at school. People who take more vacations tend to excel at their job and studies after coming back home. Having a break and a change of surroundings clears your mentality and haves you ready to give 100% in everything you do! YAY for coffee and all-nighters again!
As you travel, your perspective and understanding of the world broaden and a newer sense of thinking overtakes you. Your mind grows and you start to see that there are so many different cultures and customs that are waiting to be discovered. Once you’ve seen what the world has to offer, you find yourself and an inner sense of peace and wisdom will set over and flow through you. So, get out there and discover what you’ve been missing!
The world isn't to be feared and ignored...
The world is your oyster!
