Traveling is one of the most beautiful things that you can do before you turn 30. You have to experience the world and open your eyes to new possibilities for self development and growth.
The reason why a lot of people have midlife crisis is that they have not discovered more about themselves and they don’t really know who they are, which causes a lot of people to question their life and how they lived when they are halfway through their life.
How Can You Start Travelling Today?
Honestly, it is not that hard because all it takes is courage and perhaps some money saved up. You don’t necessarily need a lot of money to travel because in certain circumstances it is actually cheaper to travel than to stay where you are.
If you live in developed countries, it is certainly much more cheaper to travel and live abroad than living back home. You just need to be a little brave and take a leap of Faith.
One philosophy principles that I’d like to follow is stoicism. Ask yourself what is the worst that can happen if you decide to travel before you are 30 years old?
You Have Fewer Responsibilities
When you are young, it is the best time to take risks and explore more about yourself and the world because as you get older, you will be burdened with responsibilities that might prevent you from doing the things that you hope to do and enjoy.
People make the mistake of saving up some money and working for a few years, gaining some experience before doing the things that they love. But when you owned you don’t have the same level of energy, the same level of enthusiasm that you used to back when you were younger.
You Learn Faster & More Things
Have you ever wondered why you learned things much more quickly when you were a child well it is because your brain is much more flexible and able to make neural connections more easily but as you age and become older your ability to learn new things decreases. It does not mean that you will never be able to learn new things; it just means that it will take a bit more time when compared to when you are younger.
Discovering Your Purpose At A Young Age
When you are traveling there are profound moments that allow you to discover hidden traumas and learn more about yourself. Bring a diary with you or record your travels on your phone with a voice recording or video recording tool and listen to them over again during your travels. You might just discover and learn what you want to do for the rest of your life without wasting many many years doing something you hate.
Time Slows Down
Did you ever wonder why time seemed to go more slowly when you were younger? It is because your brain was exposed to new experiences and stimulus that keeps your body more active and aware. When you do the same thing over and over again, your brain starts to skip certain information which gives you the perception that time is going more quickly, but when you are traveling everything is new to you everything is something to learn more about which is why you feel as though you have more time of the day to do new things and enjoy life.
You Won’t Have To Look Back In Regret
People regret the things that they didn’t do than the things that they did do. You don’t want to be in your deathbed wondering if you had done something else with your life and asking yourself questions of what if. What is the worst that can happen yes maybe you make a few mistakes, maybe you will Encounter certain uncomfortable situations however you’ll be happy to know that you made the mistakes and grew from them as a person.
