10 ways travel feeds the soul

Women holding baby looking out on Spanish hillsideFor some people, it’s having a decent car, for others, it’s amazing clothes or a fantastic home. For me, any spare money goes on travel. It’s what keeps me inspired and happy.

Here are 10 ways, I believe travel feeds the soul.

  1. It broadens our horizons and helps us become more open-minded. We see new ways of living and it increases our understanding and empathy.
  2. We break out of comfort zones. In a new place, I’m much more willing to try new things and put myself out there than I am at home.
  3. Gain confidence. Travel involves lots of organisation and resourcefulness. It helps us recognise what we’re capable of.
  4. New places feed our creativity and help us feel inspired.
  5. It opens us up to new experiences and encourages us to learn new languages.
  6. We gain clarity and perspective. Our worries can seem much less important once you’ve taken a break from the routine.
  7. Grow in knowledge and learn about different cultures and history.
  8. Meet people from all walks of life. Travel is such a great leveller.
  9. Go on an adventure.
  10. Make memories to last a lifetime.
