5 Benefits of Road Trip

Are you so bored and tired of just your daily routine and you’re thinking of a way to spice up your life? Going for a road trip has been a proven way to relieve ourselves from stress and anxiety. To some who doesn’t know the right thing to do in stressful times, I’ll gladly recommend road trips because of the following reasons.

1. Road Trip Gives You Opportunity to Let Go

As previously stated, you have the opportunity to get away from all of the stressful aspects of your life and take a breath of fresh air – and the best part is that you can do so with your friends. You have the chance to put a stop to the life that is passing you by and live it fully. Time will become your friend rather than your enemy if you are not obsessed by hours and deadlines – this is the key to delivering you the healing you require.

2. Opportunity to See More of Your Country

Take a beat and realize that you find yourself in a world that is spectacular in its beauties and wonders. We often get so lost in the problems in our lives, the problems of the world and yes, the problems that often hit a lot harder with the fear of the future for our children, our country. However, if we are constantly looking for the worst in situations, we will find it. Like my Dad said when my music choices (cough-cough, any rock lovers out there?) were being frowned upon: “If you look for the Devil in something, you will find him.”

If I only leave you with one thought today, let it be this: Do not let fear and negativity to control your thoughts and emotions. This will hold you back in all aspects of life, and let’s face it, no one appreciates the pessimistic “Party-Pooper.” Let us stop ignoring the beauty and exciting experiences that our own country has to offer and instead embrace it with an open heart and mind, arms stretched out and running through the fields of flowers like the cliché of a love boy and girl eagerly anticipating each other.

We have far too many unexplored roads, unexplored oceans, unexplored forests, and unexplored people.

3. Opportunity to Meet New People

Nothing like the locals of a town to bring a new sense of flavor and adventure into our lives. From showing you the ins and outs of your destination to helping you with new skills like hiking, paddle-boarding, surfing and many more, all of which broaden your horizon and literally turn you into a new person.

You should also not forget about all the other exotic travelers from within your country, as well as without, that you get to meet. It is in them that you see new places, new cultures and new ways of doing things – which is very important for personal growth and understanding – something we all need a little extra of in the world that we find ourselves in today. These new friends will not only allow you to leave your mark on them, but they will leave their mark on you – making you want to stay longer than what you originally planned.

4. Opportunity to Make Some Unforgettable Memories

One thing you can be certain of is this: you will make memories and you will make lots of them. Whether you opted for something as peaceful and relaxing as a wine-tasting (which in my case would just turn out to be one big party – what can I say, we love our wine) or something a little along the wild side, like a quick skinny dip in the ocean.

Whatever it is you decide to do – the memories you make will last you a lifetime, it will carry you through all the ups and downs in life, it will bring a smile to your face once you find yourself back in the mundane of things and it will make you spontaneous in your planning of the next Road Trip. How can there not be a next one?

Nothing is too big or too small for this trip – the things you do will end up being the things that bring a warm feeling of fondness to your heart. The best of all – if you have friends like mine, there will absolutely be no judgement, just lots of laughter and opportunities for inside jokes and “remember when you (insert verb).” These memories will also be something you can tell the kids one day – take note, I said one day – some of us will have to wait until they pass the R rated phase and are a little bit older and wiser.

On a serious note though, these are the moments that count, that color your life in and make you say: “You know what, I am lucky. I have a beautiful life and I get to share it with beautiful people.”

This brings me to my fifth reason:

5. You Receive an Appreciation for Life

Yes, you get to see new places, meet new people and learn new things. Yes, you get to make memories that will last you a lifetime and you get to make it with the friends of a lifetime – but that is not all: You get to chase the sunrises and sunsets which are a gift of everyday life. Do you remember the last time your mind was shushed by the artful sunrise or sunset of a new place? The last time you felt a completely uninhibited breath of fresh air fill your lung?
