Just disconnect for a while to the real world. Turn off your cell phone, “forget” to check your mail for a few days, do not think about the accounts, responsibilities, duties and problems. One of the most creative and intense moments to solve our problems is when we disconnect. Sometimes our brain needs to rest to get rid of old thoughts and let in new ones.
7 reasons: to travel alone at least once in your life
The general belief is that, when organizing a trip, friends are indispensable, planning begins months before and activities such as backpacking are more entertaining when done in groups. For Yara, this is not the case, here are her seven reasons why you should travel alone at least once in your life. You dare?
You will meet wonderful people
Although traveling with friends or another important person can be very fun, traveling alone can be one of the most rewarding things because of the people you will meet. When traveling with a group of friends or with a partner, you tend to stick to that small circle of familiar faces and interactions with new ones will not be as profound.
The overwhelming sense of absolute freedom
When you travel alone and start to meet new people you can end up changing your plans, more if you heard of a wonderful waterfall, an incredible desert beach, the opportunity to jump in bungee or taste delicious foods that you will only find out of your way. You do not have to explain to anyone, you can follow your rhythm and your desires move you like the wind.
Traveling alone challenges your fears and insecurities
This is an important reason, especially if it is the first time you travel alone. Safety can be a great comfort, but common sense is the key. You should read and research a lot before traveling: look at the comments of the hostel and the feedback of other travelers in forums and blogs. Respect the local culture and I guarantee you will be fine.
Fall in love
We all yearn to find our better half and talk about many of the failed relationships along the way. But it does not have to be like that! We find love when we meet people who share our same interests, dreams and goals. No one knows if it will be a great summer love or the boy you will take to the altar, but there are many people out there with incredible stories to share. If you already have a partner, this time out can increase your passion and once you return you will appreciate the company of the other much more.
You will have the time to nourish yourself
If you have a stressful life, whether studying or working too much, traveling on your own can be the time to take a break and feed yourself. Enjoy all the wonderful things that a new place can give you and understand that happiness is a birthright, not a privilege.
You will have the opportunity to reinvent yourself and be who you want to be
While traveling alone you can leave your grumpy side and start being a new you. Explore part of your personality that you are not comfortable with. While you are on the road you can be challenged by unexpected factors and be surprised by the good you respond to them.
