“So much of who we are, is where we have been.” – William Langewiesche
Traveling has been part of the human experience since the beginning of time. Our natural curiosity and desire to experience the world beyond our confines constantly encourages our mind, body, and soul to get out there and see what else is around us. Still a huge part of how we all live today in the 21st century, travel is an essential part of feeling happy, wholesome, and humble, seeing and experiencing cultures that are far removed from your own.
If you’re thinking about why you should travel more, here are our top 4 reasons to travel today:
- It Provides You with Perspective:
When we get used to the same monotony and mundane routines, we lose perspective on what else is happening around us. For some of us, that means we are unaware of the poverty and suffering beyond our golden gates. For others, it means we are lacking compassion for a certain kind of custom or culture that is not similar to our own. And for others, it’s simply developing a gratefulness that wasn’t there before. All of this happens through travel.
- It Helps You Discover Yourself:
We all need to get out there and really find ourselves sometimes. It can be hard to piece apart our identity and our dreams from the dreams of those who influence us. When you travel, you are the only one living that experience. It helps you discover yourself, sometimes with no other connection or communication to your loved ones. You can really find out what makes you tick.
- It Boosts Your Self Confidence:
Traveling is not necessarily an easy endeavor; that’s why so many people are afraid to do it. When you embark on a 2-week journey, alone or with a friend, and see all that you see, do all that you do, and achieve all that you achieve, when you get home, you are going to feel like a new person. Why? You are going to have a newfound self confidence that you can tackle any challenge in your way.
- It Enables You to Meet New People:
We are only as vibrant and knowledgeable as the people we keep in our circles. When you branch out and travel beyond your home, you will meet new people with new ways of thinking that will enrich you and your perspective. Plus, it’s always great to welcome in new friends and potential mates for the future.
