Travel to Evolve!
Going on trips is an activity which aims at not only changing your perception about the world, but yourself as well. The phenomenon of putting yourself in different environments (apart from the usual hotels and resorts) pushes your brain to rewire itself to accommodate new information, in addition to drawing parallels with existing knowledge in experience. As a result of this mind moulding, you end up with a whole new lens through which you not just view the world, but also appraise your previous life experiences with it!
If you’re wondering, “Okay Mr. Mandeha blog, sounds good but how do I kickstart this so-called mind moulding?” Then read on!
Here are a few ways that traveling can actually be a game changer.
Here are just a few of the ways that travel change your perspective towards life!
Try it to believe it!
While it may seem impossible to do what most travelers do, one key aspect to remember is – They all started somewhere, and that somewhere is probably where you are too. Thus, culminating all your mental and physical resources for actually starting your trip is crucial into kickstarting your life altering journey as a traveler! After all, the world is full of opportunities awaiting your presence!
Exploring the unknown!
If you feel you’ve been living life from a script, then it’s about time you flipped it (figuratively) and started doing things off the books, keeping in mind its safety and practicality of course. Doing things that you’ve never done before does wonders to the brain, as it gives rise to new neural connections, while also releasing chemicals that promote a healthy and active brain. Thus, exploring new places and doing things that you’ve never done is a solid indicator that you’re one step further in becoming not just a competent traveler, but an explorer.
Be comfortable with being alone
While it isn’t always pleasant to be alone, it has its utilitarian value when it comes to taking on challenges while embarking on a journey. Being alone enables you to truly make an assessment of your skills and mental make up. It helps establish a potent sense of clarity with regard to what kind of person you are, and also what kind of person you want to be. While traveling, you NEED to assess not just your physical inventory such as your water, tent, sleeping bag, etc, but also your mental resources – such as focus, will power, empathy, and how to use them wisely.
Now, I think we’ve gone over enough pointers to hopefully plant the seed that traveling is truly an amazing platform to build on new perspectives, while reassessing previous experiences.
Much like Mandehas Travel Tangible Tool, every journey needs to be planned to enjoy, learn, experience as well as take up new challenges to push you out of your comfort zone.
