Many people focus on the importance of gaining experiences over material items. One of the best ways to collect those is via travelling. New experiences give your spirit new energy, and they also invite you to pause and examine who you are and how you see the world.
While travelling the world, it’s not always simple to be in the present and in the moment. In today’s networked society, it’s a wonderful opportunity to share a great experience with loved ones or make new friends who share your interests. It can be a very effective tool that opens up new chances, but next time you go on an adventure, take a moment to pause using your phone or camera and concentrate on the present.
Plan where you’re travelling, but be flexible. It’s a good idea in general to create a plan for your next travel, but being too carefully also can sometimes limit the experiences you can enjoy.
If you know anything about mindfulness, you are familiar that the idea is to give the present moment your full attention without expectations or judgement. The concept is that by being fully present, we are more fully alive and get a variety of advantages, including a better sense of calm and wellness as well as a deeper connection to our surrounding, others, and ourselves.
