“Travelling – leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
Travelling is a mind-blowing and positively life-changing thing to do. In real Travel isn’t that easy. At many stages, it can be exclusively demanding. The most challenging thing which we feel is to overcome our mental stress. Especially for solo travelers, who are alone on the other side of the world, far from their family, friends, there are numerous ways that travelling can affect your mental health.
We all are different, so it’s necessary to find what works for you. A good way to start solo travel is to know yourself first, when you learn what works for you, make a note of that. This way you have a written record for follow-ups later on.
We are discussing some ideas which would definitely help you to prepare yourself mentally as a solo traveler.
Engage with others – Sometimes a talk to our loved ones, hearing their voices or seeing their faces are enough ways to brighten up your day.
Try to speak to the people around you, even if you are lea talkative. It helps in refreshing your mind with new ideas. Ask fellow travelers in hotels, ask strangers about the route or destinations, chill out with someone.
If you are not able to talk to someone due to a busy schedule. There are numerous apps or websites from where you can take help or routes or directions. It’s better to ask someone instead of finding the directions by yourself.
Always be Active – An exercise in a day removes our half of stress. Where ever you travel go for a walk in the morning, just ride a bike to explore the city or town. It’s also a great way to explore a new place.
Aware of your surroundings – There are many issues in our past or the future, that we don’t have time for the present. Just close your eyes and focus on your present.
The best thing you can do for yourself is mediate for an hour or more. Stay updated with what’s going on within your surroundings. By doing this you can distract yourself from being anxious in the past or worrying in the future.
Keep Learning – For solo travel the best way to learn new things in a new city or town is by reading books or Wikipedia. Visit Museums to find out new and familiar things
Do something for others – it makes us feel good if we do something good for others. Like donating some money to low-level people, educating children who cannot go to school due to financial issues. Give food to homeless people instead of wasting it. In whatever scenarios we help others, helping others always helps us feel better.
