15 Traveling The World has Big Benefits for You!  

We live in a very global and interconnected world. Experiencing more of it in person will help you understand it better.  Maybe traveling the world isn’t possible for you right now, but at least making an effort to travel more and further than you are now might be. Not only is it a lot of fun, it’s also good for you and can help you live a more purpose-driven life. Of course if one of your big goals is to travel more and see as much of the world as you can, this is a no-brainer. Even if traveling isn’t one of your ambitions right now and you’re perfectly comfortable staying in your little corner of the world, I encourage you to explore the option and give travel a try because there are many benefits to traveling the world….

Experience New Cultures

As you travel the world and interact with the people living in other countries, you learn a lot about different cultures. It’s fun to try new food, go shopping in a very different atmosphere and looking at very different products, stumble through conversations in a foreign language, and just soak up the fact that things can be done differently. Traveling is a great way to experience new cultures and learn from those experiences.

Become More Open Minded

Experiencing new cultures helps you become more open minded. You realize that there is more than one way to do things in all areas of life. Cooking is done differently, parenting is done differently, and even the rhythm of life might be very different. And that’s just the beginning. You will come across all sorts of new ideas that challenge the way you think about things. That’s a good thing because it gives you the opportunity to rethink how you’re doing things and become more intentional and purposeful in what you do.

Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Because so many things are done very differently and the entire culture is different from your own, traveling gets you out of your comfort zone. It’s great when you feel like you’re stuck in a rut or just need some fresh inspiration.

When we stay in our comfort zone, it’s hard to grow and it’s hard to change how we live our lives. Stepping out of that zone and doing things that are new, uncomfortable, and challenging is how we grow has human beings. Traveling is a great way to do that.

Even if traveling isn’t big on your “to-do” list right now, I encourage you to make it a priority. If actual world travel isn’t an option for you right now, do a bit of armchair traveling by learning more about a foreign country including its culture and language.
