By the The Sassy Stuff
In our school days, we hardly paid attention to all the useless stuff teachers taught in geography classes like population of a region, temperature of a country, staple diet of a region, forests of a region and so on.
Had we known that same boring stuff printed in text books would become so fascinating for us that we would be willing to travel all the lengths and breadths to experience those places, we would have paid more attention. If you are still not aware then let me tell you this; travelling or backpacking is quite a rage all over the world right now.
If you are still stuck in your cubicle and reading all the articles on internet that coax you to travel more, I must say, it is time for you to plan a trip, pack your bag and fly out. Don’t reason by saying that you don’t have enough savings! There are plenty tips and tricks available on internet to plan a budget trip. So shut your excuses up and follow your dream as I give you 6 reasons why you should travel more and suffer less in office. (Grin)
Travel helps you open up
It may sound weird to you, but it’s true. Some people have difficulty in even striking up a conversation with someone, forget going to a new place alone or handling situations on their own. But when you take a trip, you become sort of responsible for yourself and you are bound to become more “proactive” and “open”. Obstacles on roads give you more opportunities to interact with your fellow travelers or locals. So, one of the benefits of traveling the world is that you become extrovert.
Travel helps relieve stress
A survey says that if you are suffering from anxiety or lifestyle disorders then a few days in lap of nature will set your body clock right. One of the most important reasons people travel more is to keep themselves sane despite this mad mad world.
It is not necessary to become a nomad to travel and relieve stress. But you can surely take a week off the work and go to a place that you have always desired to go! Believe me, nothing will be more gratifying than that.
There is no denying the fact that life is a constant struggle for survival; the survival being for food, recognition or number one spot in the market. And to meet the necessities for survival we compromise on lifestyle. And what follows is unorganized waking and eating schedules, air and noise pollution, peer pressure and traffic stress. By going to a hill station or on a beach holiday, you will be able to connect with nature better. Hence, along with body clock, your mind clock also gets recharged. Sea breezes and fresh air of forests and mountains have proven positive effects on body that help improve health. Hence proved! Importance of traveling.
