Seek Adventure Travel Happy
My restlessness and longing to travel is a serious problem. I admit, it often gets in the way of daily life. I refuse to get a 9-5 job because I won't have enough vacation days to travel and I always have to wake myself from my daydreams when they take me to far-off places I want to visit,
And the one that gets me the most... when I hear from others to "snap back to reality"... that it's great that I want to travel so much, but I can't just keep hopping in planes. I have responsibilities. I have to plan my life out. I have to work and make money. I have to already start saving for retirement (ugh).
And they're not wrong. But they're also not right. I know all these things, and I certainly don't have the money to travel around all the time. That's why I'm trying to learn how to relax every day (along with making money).
I'm not telling anyone to quit their jobs and just start traveling. Bad idea. But if you're not happy with your job, if you're not happy with your life, do something to change it! At least try doing something to help you relax every day. And I'm not talking about coming home, and crashing on the couch to watch TV.
For those who do work full-time, who maybe actually like their jobs, who have responsibilities and can't leave town, you can still let your mind have a vacation.
Here's a list of things you can try. Starting with the one I've recently become obsessed with.
Make time for yourself. Breathe. Relax. Set aside some time every day to completely forget about any stress. If you can do all these with a beach near, then lucky you.
Just clear your mind and stop thinking about your to-do list. You can come back to it later.
Even if you can't travel, at least your mind can.
Hi there! I'm Skeeter. I grew up moving a lot and that makes me a bit restless for travel and exploration. I started this blog with my husband Pat when we decided to backpack New Zealand for a year. We are always looking for the next adventure and are loving life. We're just your average couple with two sassy dogs and a love for travel. We're sharing our travels and the tips we pick up along the way.
Hello! I'm Liz. Blogging is very new to me, but I'm so excited to finally write as much as I talk!
