Why is Travel So Good For Us?

Looking for another excuse to book that next holiday? Here are a few reasons why travel is beneficial to our lives! 

Breaks Up Everyday Routine...

Adult life is busy and stressful at times, we all need to buckle down and get on with things we don't necessarily want to do. Paying bills, childcare, going to work, cleaning the house - they’re necessary but not always the most thrilling things to do. Over time we can become fed up with the same old routine, or stressed and burned out. Travel is great because it gives us a chance to break our daily cycles for a while and just relax and have fun. Sometimes just having a break and having a couple of carefree weeks is all you need to totally revitalise yourself.

Teaches Us New Things

During childhood we learn so much. We learn to speak, count, walk, dress ourselves. Thanks to school we learn lots of academic information, and school trips to London Zoo and other outings teach us about everything from animals to the wider world. However, when we leave school and enter the world of full time work, we can often stop learning because we’re constantly doing the same things day in, day out. Travel gives you the opportunity to learn new skills as you’re in completely new environments. From reading maps to learning about history, food and culture, it’s a really fun way to find out more about the world.

Allows Us To Have Quality Time With Loved Ones

When it comes down to it, it’s the people in our lives that make it worth living. But with the business of daily routines, few of us get the quality time with our parents, kids, partners and friends that we’d like. Travelling together however allows you to make that time. It’s a set period of time away from your responsibilities where you can eat, drink, stay up late, sunbathe all day, explore museums and markets or whatever else you fancy doing. Time is precious, and spending it together this way is genuinely one of the best things you’ll ever do.

Helps Us To Make Memories & Have Fun

Finally, when you’re old and grey and look back on your life, how do you want to see it? Will you wish that you’d spent more time working, cleaning the house or getting through your to do list? Of course not, the things you’ll remember will be the times that you had a break from all of that and let your hair down. It will be giggling thinking about the time you held a koala in Australia, it will be in awe remembering how you flew over the Las Vegas strip in a helicopter and in amazement as you think back to the blissful day you sat on a beautiful beach with your young child building sandcastles. Don’t let your future self down, live a life that’s worth remembering!

Thanks for stopping by!
