They say, “To Travel is to live life to the Fullest”.
You’re not convinced? Still confused and double minded whether it is good to travel or not?
We’ve got you covered!
Little did you know that travelling may cost big but it is a sure investment to improve yourself. What does it take for someone to understand life?
LIFE in 4 big letters is intriguing. It’s a simple word but it carries your whole being, your emotion, your existence…
You might be wondering what’s the main purpose of travelling. Well, we’ll say it in a very familiar phrase, that is: “Going out in your COMFOR ZONE”. Come on! Enough hiding inside your self-made ‘not-so-cool’ shell.
The opportunity to learn and grow is what this world is demanding. It gives us the chance to be fully engaged in exquisite activities and develop new skills that you never thought you have. It gives you an eye to look for greener pastures (those who want to have high & stable income) and teach you how to live the life with a positive outlook.
Internet might be the most common way of ‘looking outside’, the usual window to see the world, but is it the ‘Healthy Way’ of living? Being stuck inside the 4 corners of your room with a device in your lap that will surely send radiation in your brain?
Above is just a prologue of this blog. Here to complete and fully understand the benefits of travelling, kindly read the following below. (We know you’re excited…)
Health is wealth. Exercising at the gym is good, but it is not enough. Travel improves your brain health. This is all good for your health because new experiences increase cognitive flexibility, keeping your mind sharp.
Studies have shown a connection between travel and an increase in creativity, a deeper sense of cultural awareness and personal growth.
Travel exposes you to different environments, which create stronger antibodies and boost your immune system significantly.
Antibodies are the little proteins that protect your immune system from harmful pathogens. In fact, research shows exposure to some dirt and minor illnesses actually keeps your body and gut stronger. But of course, it doesn’t mean you’ll forget your basic hygiene during the travel. You definitely should still wash your hands or sanitized them – every now and then – so to protect you from being sick. But, to be vaccinated by having some new bacteria in your life isn’t a bad thing. When you travel, your body actively adapts thousands of new bacteria which in turn make your immune system much stronger.
It also lowers Stress levels, like very – very – much. This information is not surprising after all, as walking outside in the park for 30 minutes each day would significantly lower your stress level already, so how much more if you travel for a day or a week? It is significantly proven that happy hormones increases as you travel and decreases your depression.
As we have said earlier, travelling helps brain activities. It expands your mind. Why? Well needless to explain further, but ok we’ll say it so to make this blog longer (lol). The answer is because: 1st – You meet new people, 2nd – You adapt to new situations and 3rd – You become globally and culturally aware.
So that’s it! Travelling is Healthy!
Do you think social media improves your social life already because you got 5,000 Facebook friends and 10,000 Facebook followers? Those people that will just click the ‘Like’ button of your post in just half a second then commented ‘beautiful’? Well it’s a big NO.
Being in other country, where your native language is not widely used, will help you learn how to communicate using your own style of polite gesture. This will help you know yourself more and know how the word ‘respect’ improves communication.
Asking for directions to your target restaurant while walking will need extra effort, but it is all worth it, as you will see how other culture treats you in the most polite way. Surely you will have foreign friends before you’re back to your beloved country.
See? It definitely broadens your horizon. “Travelling helps you connect with different people from different cultures and this is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness. Meeting people from different cultures and societies will help you see issues and daily life from many different angles.” (inf src)
Sounds pretty cool doesn’t it, being connected to other cultures and people from all over the world? Not only will you have more friends around the globe to keep in touch with, but you will also have people happy to let you stay at theirs when you next get itchy feet. You’ll have the opportunity to visit their home turf and see their city and way of life like no other tourist would. They’ll want to show you their world, and luckily for you, you’ll get to see it through the eyes of the locals. (inf src)
This might sound redundant as we have said already that travelling will make you healthy. Listen up, being fit is way different of being healthy. They are two separate words that are needed to be respectively defined properly.
But do seek Healthy body first before being Physically Fit.
Just because a body builder or an athlete for that matter looks strong, sculpted and without a trace of fat, doesn’t mean he or she is healthy. Meaning, to be healthy, you must be fit, but you can be fit and not be healthy.
They are not equal. Health is a state of complete physical, mental well-being, not merely the absence of disease. Fit means in good health, especially because of regular physical exercise.
Sometimes the more fit we are, the easier it is to ignore our body’s warnings. This is true of young people as well as adults. We can easily disregard warning signs, however, being healthy means listening to our brains and our bodies. (src inf)
Have you ever been in a situation where you are stuck in one place or one answer? Yes! Of course, all of us had that experience. While travelling, you will find yourself stuck in situations where things don’t always go as planned. Such situations will help you learn to cope with the uncertainties in life.
Taking a journey all by yourself is not only humbling, it’s empowering. It’s the time every impossible item you ever thought about, seems possible. Ever fear, and apprehension fades into insignificance when you’re on a road to discovering yourself, because a big part of it is overcoming everything you were ever scared of. So eat as many insects as you want, jump off cliffs, drive on mountains, or take a walk on an unknown road. The world is all yours to explore.
Travelling can be scary at first, especially when you arrive in a new country by yourself but believe us, you will get used to the people and the culture very quickly. You will adapt quicker than you ever thought and when you return home you can be super proud of who you’ve become and the fact that you did it all by yourself.
“There is no place like home”, they say, but there’s nothing tasted so good like the exotic food you can find respectively in every each country.
There might be this feeling of nauseous when you smell ‘this or that food’ at first but suck it up! And eat it!
You travel and left home for new experiences, so make sure you’re doing it. Again the secret to experience new foods is to – “suck it up and eat it!” -.
There’s nothing worse than travelling thousands of miles from home to taste the familiar. Speak to locals and find out how they cook certain dishes, what ingredients they use and why. Get them to write it down on a piece of paper, don’t just stick it on your Instagram stories and be done, learn the tricks of the trade and appreciate new flavours from around the world. (inf src)
Nothing feels like travelling. It is the feeling of being free and wild with caution at the same time. Live the life.
When locals are happy, smiling and friendly, it has an immediate knock-on effect. I found the people of Cambodia and Laos to be notably friendly and cheerful, despite the relative poorness of these countries and the former in particular having a very recent traumatic history. When faced with those big beaming smiles, it’s hard to be annoyed at the hassling you might experience at busy sites like Angkor Wat; putting that knee-jerk irritation to one side instantly lifts your mood and is a good habit to take home.
Traveling gives us breathing space that is often lost in our usual day-to-day existence. Having a moment to take advantage of peace and quiet and to simply ‘be’ allows us to let go of stress and tension and just enjoy being in the moment — a key focus of meditation and a practice you can take home with you. If you’re traveling with a partner, it’s a chance to spend time with only each other for company, which is a thought that probably shouldn’t fill you with dread.
A house can wait, a degree can wait, a car can wait, travelling might not be able to wait, don’t live to regret not doing it.
Here are the summary list of things you’ll regret if you’ll not travel NOW.
And that’s it!
