Why It’s Important To Go on Holiday

In Philosophy, Self Improvement, Short Thoughts

It’s not what you think. It’s not about getting away, relaxing, taking time off, seeing new things – although those are all important points.

It’s about shifting your view of the world, ever so slightly. Each time we go on holiday, and visit a new country, and have some new experiences our view on life changes, just a little bit.

It’s hardly every earth shattering, although I can think of my trip to Vietnam and Cambodia in 2010 with my brother, he came back and sold all his stuff and moved there within a month. I wasn’t quite so brave – it took my three years to follow him.

Each time you go come back home, you feel slightly different. Do that enough, and eventually, that imperceptible shift becomes a wide gap between how you want to live your life, and how it is right now.

Watch how things will change…
