Embracing travel amid a fast paced work life!

The hustle and bustle of adult life has made us believe that the chase for capitalism and stability are our primary assets. We are completely held up in the cycle of capitalism, where professional achievements and financial security are considered the elements of long run. However, in this we often tend to overlook a simple joy that once made us happy – the joy of travelling.

Travel isn’t just about crossing exotic locations off a bucket list. It’s about rediscovering the curiosities of a child coming across something new. Travelling fuels creativity, changes our perspectives, and reminds us that the world is far bigger than our daily routines.

So why only travelling?

Travelling takes us to places. It makes us leave the space of our own and explore places that we barely have any idea about. By immersing ourselves in new experiences and unfamiliar surroundings, we appreciate the beauty of places around us that we have very less idea of. Once you start travelling, thereafter each journey becomes a core memory of your busy schedules.

What can we do to prioritize self-care with travelling as an option?

Here’s what we can do as working adults to truly take up travel for breaks:

Schedule Regular breaks: Make it a priority to plan and take regular breaks throughout the year specifically dedicated to travel. Set your calendars just as you would for any other important appointment.

Plan in advance. Research destinations, book accommodations, and plan activities that interests you. Start planning your trips in advance to ensure you have ample time to make proper arrangements.

Set the right budget: Keep up savings specifically for travel expenses. By budgeting wisely and saving consistently, you can afford to make great trips without unnecessary financial strains.

Take up short Getaways: Not every trip needs to be an elaborate vacation. Whether it’s a weekend road trip to a nearby town or a day trip to explore a local attraction, embrace it.

Stay flexible: Be open to unexpected situations that may arise during your travels. Allow yourself to deviate from your original plans and embrace new experiences that contribute to your overall sense of well-being.


In the end, fancy job titles and bigger bank accounts won’t give you memories as amazing as the ones you make by travelling. As they say finding balance is the key! You can take short trips as brief escapes. This can provide a much-needed break from routine and rejuvenate your spirit.
