“We travel because we need to. Because distance and difference are the secret toxins to creativity. When we get home, home is still the same, but something in our minds has changed, and that changes everything.”
Life is stressful.
We’re all busy, rushing to get everything done in a day. Replying to emails, sitting in meetings and watching time slip away from us. As a society, we’re always trying to be more productive and to get even more done each day. We forget that we need breaks and that we need to take care of ourselves.
Taking a break is important. We can’t just go all the time. That’s when anxiety, stress and burnout start to set in. We need to step back from the business and stress and take a break. It’s hard for most people to take a break in their daily lives because they are always thinking about what’s next on their to-do list. It’s important to travel and go on vacation somewhere calming so we can actually get a break from the non-stop.
Travel is good for the soul. It reminds us that we’re human and how we aren’t meant to constantly be working. Traveling makes us think about our lives and if we’re achieving our goals. Taking a break from our normal lives allows us to recharge and come back with a new perspective.
A break was exactly what I needed. A week in my favorite place with nothing to worry about. I was able to read a few books, take a nap on the beach and get enough sleep. Traveling reminded me that I shouldn’t be stressed and worried all the time. I feel recharged and that was exactly what I needed.
