"Travel is the one thing you buy that makes you richer."
You could be 14 or 40, it doesn't matter. Everyone has complete control of their life, and the power to change it. Traveling can take hours of planning, be expensive, and bit nerve wrecking at times however, it is one of the best decisions you can make! Allow yourself to escape the known and venture into the unknown. You will discover yourself, others and this wonderful world.
Here are 5 reasons that you should be planning your next vacation:
1. Re Evaluation
Too often people become enveloped in the busyness of daily life. It can be stressful, difficult and hurtful to their life time dreams and aspirations. Traveling can affirm or deter you from the path that you have chosen, it may even give you a whole different take on the life you are living. By separating yourself from the "normal" it can allow you to see things in a clearer light and through the eyes of those around the world. Sometimes all you need is a small step away.
2. Stress Reliever
Travel gives you the opportunity to put your problems aside for a short (or long) period of time. It gives you a BREAK. Traveling definitely has stress of its own but it is positive stress, not the usual daily life annoyances, it will teach you things.
3. Countless Memories
How many hours a week do you spend in the office? at the gym?
Are those the fun stories you'll be telling at family gatherings? Doubtful.
Memories last a life time. Whether you're traveling alone or with you're loved ones, the memories you will make while traveling are priceless.
4. The Chance To Walk In Someone Else's Shoes
Traveling gives you the chance to step away from your comfort zone and venture into the vast world that surrounds. It allows you to learn things you didn't know were possible to learn. See the world through the eyes of the locals, and have the experience of a lifetime.
You will never come back from a trip the same you left. Every place you go will spark a token of appreciation in your life. Whether is a new appreciation for your job, for your family, for the hectic life you live, or home. It will be there. You will have a new found love of the world.
GO. Experience the world, discover yourself, and celebrate it.
