With every new year comes a clean slate, so as we prepare to bid farewell to 2017 and welcome 2018 with open arms, the time has come to contemplate our New Year’s resolutions.
Sure, you’ve got your usual go-to resolutions such as exercising more, spending more time with family and friends, and focusing on your wellbeing. But for this coming year, you only need one New Year’s Resolution: travel more.
Wondering how traveling will help you accomplish your goals? Here are some of the benefits you’ll reap when you travel:
1 ) You’ll be more active
It’s tough to find time to exercise between the hours you spend working or commuting. When you’re traveling, you’ll be on your feet more as you explore foreign cities or hike through the wilderness.
2) You’ll get out of your comfort zone
Everyday routines will leave you feeling like you’re stuck in a rut, so break the cycle and go someplace you’ve never been to before. After spending some time out of your comfort zone, you’ll return refreshed and rejuvenated.
3) You’ll create new memories to cherish
During your travels, you’ll meet people from different walks of life, some of whom may even become lifelong pals - there’s a special bond that comes from having a passion for travel. The same goes when you go on a trip with family or friends - having shared memories brings you closer.
4) You’ll grow as a person
When you’re someplace strange and unfamiliar, it can get a bit overwhelming, but that’s how you grow - by learning and embracing new experiences. This gives you the chance to discover your true self and see things from another perspective.
