There are countless reasons for traveling doing good to be a better person. Traveling not only lets you see the world around but also enriches you with some valuable essence that will last lifelong and definitely will pay you off. It will nourish your soul and broaden your mind. Traveling gives us the privilege of getting closer to the different culture and norms of various countries or places. It helps us become a well oriented, thoughtful and tolerant person. You will be more social, well-rounded and cultured person by traveling. So don’t waste your time only thinking or planning for a next year tour that is seemingly never happening. Try to travel on the immediate suitable time and gather some excellent qualities in your characteristic. I am enlisting 7 reasons why traveling makes you super awesome:
- You will be more confident and independent than ever before
If you travel around the countries or cities you may have to do certain things out of your comfort zone previously. You might have a height phobia but if you try hiking the mountains with your group will cherish those memories forever. You can even experiment with new foods coming out of your regular food habit like you can try some non-veg food if you are a hardcore vegetarian. You will have gobs of tantalizing stories and experiences to share with the folks. After doing so many audacious things during traveling you will see a noticeable uplift of your confidence. Traveling will also make you more independent. You might not be able to ask or hang on others in your group for every situation. You will have to cope-up with the new environments, people and their culture at the places or cities you are visiting. Your self-dependence will grow with these unfamiliar things you are experiencing. You will become free-spirited with the trip episodes. You will start relying more on yourself and less on others.
- Traveling will increase your creativity and make you more open to trying new things and adventurous
Traveling has a positive impact on creativity. As you travel more, you will undergo a lot of uncertain phenomena that will boost your innovating power. Most of the writers, filmmakers, and singers travel a great amount of time to gather inspiration from nature and the new places. They convert those ingenuities into stories, films or songs with the spell bounding words of passion. Traveling also recover the writer’s block quickly. You will be more open to new things and easy going by traveling in the unknown places, hills etc. You might not like to see a snake on your bed right after you wake up in the morning. But you will surely enjoy snake charming in the village of Nepal. Besides, you would love to play with that hypnotized snake which you can’t even think of in your bad dreams in your own house. You will feel free to try compulsive things during traveling which is not a crime. You will learn to be adventurous by traveling the world. Most of us like adventure but have fear to try it. But all your fear will vanish if you travel and fall into some unexpected states of affairs. You need to come out of your comfort zone to try new things for adventure. You will get accustomed to it by traveling. Going towards an adventure is not risky always and obviously, your intuition will not allow you to do that. So don’t think again and again for a tension free journey. Learn to trust your steps. A little madness is allowed very often when you are on a crazy trip!
- You will find a new meaning of life and you will be more adaptable
People travel for different reasons. You may think of the fact that, we all are bound to be in a life which is nearly robotic and we can’t help doing that. Sometimes you need to seize all the stresses, worries and sorrows you are withstanding and go on a sudden trip to an unplanned destination. You will discover the world beyond that rat race of corporate, petty melancholy or uncertainty of your future. Trust me, that world is loveable. To get another meaning and integrity of life you must travel. Traveling will also make you adaptable to such a manner that you will get the benefit of it in other aspects of life. When you will travel some plans would have been postponed, you might not get the desired flight, some schemes might have been canceled. These things happen and you should accept it anyway. So you will learn taking things easily and sometimes let them go. You may gain something unbelievable without an alert. It may not be always good, but still, you have to go with the regular flow of life and its paths.
- You will be less materialistic!
When you travel you won’t need a lot of things you were totally dependent on in your house. This is a huge stroke for knowing what you actually require to live and what you don’t. You will realize that every big or small thing sold in the malls are actually not necessary for us. We can do without them so well. It’s just a manipulation of the sellers to make you buy those craps for the discount or whatever with a smile on the face. By traveling you will enjoy the hype of it and you perceive that flocking the experiences together is more important than owning a car or a farmhouse. You will start living with content without luxury. And Socrates said, “How many things I can live without!”
- You will be more companionable and better at conversation
Traveling is another way to be social and friendly with people we don’t know. You can’t alone manage to go to an unknown place without the right directions or proper guidance only with the Google map on your iPhone. You must have to talk or at least ask the local people of the country or the city you are visiting. You may be an introvert and hesitate to ask a question to a stranger having a lot of things in your mind like how would he react? Or what will he think of me? Or will he help me even? Yeah, I understand. I am also a proud introvert. But on a trip, you can’t just waste your time and money at your urgency without talking to the strangers. You must have to do that. At the beginning, it might be awkward for you, but gradually you will be very good at conversation and making new friends at new places. Traveling will make you cooler than ever. You will start enjoying to know and get in touch with the new people.
- You will have more resistant to problems and you will be more polite and conscious
We all face a lot of problems in our daily life. Some of them are fixed and some of them are yet to fix. And some problems are never fixed by us as we don’t stress over those sincerely. But during the travel, we can’t ignore any problem since we would have to be back to our regular life after it. So we need to have the problem-solving capabilities to straighten out the conditions immediately. Problem-solving skill is developed by traveling. You never know what kind of situations are waiting for you on a 1 week traveling. If you are not good at fixing things into place, still you will learn to resolve any puzzling moment while traveling. Because you won’t have other choices to make. Traveling will also give you some virtue. It will make you polite and humble. When you will see the world, you will realize how measly you are in this boundless world of endless beauty. If you see the ocean your heart will be more generous and merciful, if you hike the mountains it will make you more broadminded. You will learn where you belong to be and how you fit into that. When you meet people on a multitude level you will achieve a different vision of seeing the world. You will appreciate their living style, culture, and norms that may not be your own taste. It is traveling that will make you more accepting the other opinions that we might not have. You will be more patient and conscious towards others and yourself. Traveling will not only open your eyes to make you practice a broader perspective but also create some sympathy for the people around the world living below the poverty line especially in the 3rd world country. If you have an opportunity to travel in the 3rd world countries in South-Asia or Africa then never miss that. You will see how the people of those countries live interestingly a happy life with much more fewer demands that the people of 1st world countries do. All these experiences will help you develop a sense of solidarity and empathy.
- You will learn to be smarter, happier and learn to cling to the present world
You will be more situation adjusting if travel once in a year. You will come to know about various cultures and history other countries. You will have the scope of self-education by visiting numerous places and unveiling the enigmatic facts of the world we never saw. You will observe the people and try to understand their behavior. These experiences will make you smarter and better at handling the circumstances. Traveling will also make you happy and satisfied with the flow of life. After rejoicing in a fascinating tour you must be relaxed, confident and delighted. It will give you the strength to take the double loads of work and accomplish your chores with two hundred percent efficiency you had before. With happiness comes greater proficiency. You must not leave this kind of chance to be cheerful by traveling. Have you ever try to disconnect yourself from the rest of the world? You must have tried that. I am pretty sure that you could not do that properly in this era of modern technology. All the time you are traceable and somehow you are connected to your folks by Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. Traveling will allow you to leave the virtual world for a while and be fully in the present world. You will not check out the posts and photos shared by your friends on Instagram while you are surfing on the polar, diving deep into the seas or just visiting a museum or exhibition. Traveling will make you the more real of you and you will give up stressing over those thumbs up and comments you expect from your friends on Facebook. You will start the living the moments, not the virtual illusions. You will feel the value of realism.
Traveling stretches out the best version of you. It will only do good and more good to you. You will be more radiant, outgoing, self-assured, optimistic and awesome which are noteworthy for other aspects of daily or professional life by simply traveling. When you know more than your books taught you by first-hand experiences you will be able to push the barriers around you and try to make your life worthwhile. You may have noticed that all the successful persons are very confident and positive towards life and they take the challenges at high risk. With a lot of traveling experiences be it for their professional or private trip, there is no reason to be feared to take up those seemingly impossible challenges. If you want to accumulate experiences for a lifetime then see the world and dare to live like they dream.
