With all the hustle-bustle of this exhausting, tiring urban life, every day is a conquest with ourselves for inner peace. We try yoga, workouts or just another kind of meditation but how much can it help in these noisy polluting cities. This is where travel has proven to be a sure shot stress buster and a thread that will get you as close as you have ever gotten in this quest for inner peace. Here are 10 ways of travel that will make you a much happier, peaceful person.
Stop looking for peace around you and create it within yourself. Travelling lets you unwind from your everyday routine and helps you clear your mind. It helps you clean your rusted lens and helps you breathe while you spend time with yourself on this break. People all over the world come every year only to experience peace in the beautiful monasteries of Dharamshala.
If frustration has been killing you all this while and you cease to see a road ahead, travelling or simply wandering can lead you to that little light spot in the dark. You will see a change in your attitude by the end of the trip as you will now be more positive, physically and spiritually.
3. No limits to finding peace
One of the main reasons for stress is because you limit yourself and don’t push yourself to think beyond. Travelling is just the opposite of this feeling. Here you are not only in the existence of nature, but the landscapes bring peace to your eyes and thus your mind. They help keep you motivated and bring back your lost confidence.
4. Helps you move on
Moving, exploring, wandering helps you forget the past, and make peace with it. It shows you how huge and beautiful the outside world is and how petty your problems are.
5. Teaches you to change
Exploring within different cultures and within different places teaches you to change. If you are somebody who is afraid of change or stuck up to something new, Your whole perspective will change towards things, which will make you much happier.
6. Acceptance and loving yourself and others
Travel also helps you accept yourself. It pushes your boundaries and shows you how creative and how strong you are. You will see your weakness and strengths right in front of you and you will be proud of them. You will not only start loving yourself but the people around you. You will experience positive vibes that will detox your mind.
7. Scream and cry
Another advantage of travelling is you do not know everybody and maybe you will never see them again. Take this opportunity to be your real self and not the artificial ones at a conference or a board meeting. Go into the midst of nature and scream your lungs out or just cry. Kill the void inside you because you will only grow stronger than ever before.
8. Meditate with nature
Instead of meditating or doing yoga in the four walls of your room, do it in the open. Try and do it alone or with people who have positive energy. Also, avoid using your cell phones as it will only distract you and hinder your journey and search for peace.
They say happiness is doubled only when shared. Our urban lifestyles have made us into machines that are so artificial that we start disliking people around us. When we travel, we actually realise how important other people are to us and that we actually need them. Travelling with known people or strangers or even locals helps in adding to this joy. You’ll be amazed to see how simple things can give you so much peace and happiness.
10. Making a memory to never forget
Finally, you are creating a memory for yourself. Apart from all the social media pictures, videos, this trip is completely yours and holds utmost importance to you. Years later when you feel gloomy or sad, this journey will bring a smile on your face.
So travel, not for anybody else but for yourself. Let the journey kill your inner void, forgive and accept yourself, broaden your horizon and finally move on. Let it make you a happier person from within and make you stronger in mind and body and finally let it help you conquer your inner peace.
