Travel isn’t all about the adventure alone, I mean, there’s more to it.
A good number of people think of travel as a burden and assume it’s a bit challenging, having to move from place to place, getting used to a new environment, having to start off in a new environment and all sort, such discomfort! But then, for the sake of mental stability and good productivity, here’s why you should consider travelling more.
1. You feel more rested

Travelling takes you away from the everyday stress that you experience from your job, business and all. That way, both body and mind feel rested and your mind is taken away from all sorts of problem and allows you feel relaxed more.
2. You get away from work

Let’s face it, there are times in our lives that we just want to take a break from our works. Even if we’re running our personal business, there’s always a need for a break. Remember how they say all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy? We don’t want to be a dull Jack.
3. You spend ample time with your loved ones
Amidst the hustle and bustle of the everyday life, we often forget (or in most cases, are deprived of) to create and spend quality time with family and friends. Travelling together creates that perfect opportunity to share and enjoy experiences together, plus it creates precious memories that will be recalled over and over again.
4. You learn new skills

Travelling exposes you to different people with different lifestyle and culture all around the world. This gives you a new perspective and expands your learning capability. You get to try new things such as learning to cook a new dish, trying out fun activities that might be new to you, like water skiing, zip lining and lots more. This stretches your physical or mental aptitude and gives you both enjoyment and confidence at the same time.
5. You have more time to think

Plan to spend some time doing nothing when you travel. You could go sit on a mountaintop, go fishing, boat cruising, take a long nap or any activity that doesn’t require much of your mental attention. That way, your mind wanders as you reflect or meditate. This will help you generate new ideas and insights.
