How Traveling Can Satisfy Your New Year’s Resolutions

With the new year fast approaching, it’s time to think about the new you. New year’s resolutions are a very wonderful thing, and when compiling a list, look inward to get a sense of where you’re trying to improve.

A lot of people have similar goals they would like to pursue in the new year. One of the most common new year’s resolutions is to “travel more”. While the phrase itself seems pretty vague, the reality is that traveling more will not only help you experience self-growth, it could also help you achieve some of your other resolutions.

We researched a number of lists ranking the most common new year’s resolutions made every year. We broke down five of them and explained how travel can help you find the motivation to cross those goals off the list while you get out there and explore!

Enjoy Life To The Fullest

This topped a lot of lists we researched over the years from the Nielsen Ratings to ABC News to Forbes. This may seem a little vague as well, but in its essence, enjoying life to the fullest means exposing yourself to everything life has to offer. While your immediate life (work, school, family) deserves attention too, don’t forget that there is an entire world out there to be explored.

Visit a new city somewhere in America; different parts of the country have different vibes so absorb the customs and culture of a new city or town! Of course, if you really want to experience culture shock, visit another country as well.

Stay Fit And Healthy

Surely, you’ve heard the old joke about how going on vacation also means going on vacation from your diet. But one of the main reasons that a lot of people travel is to go to new places for outdoor adventures. Going for a ski weekend to Colorado, hitting the links in Arizona, or learning how to surf in Maine, there are so many opportunities to experience the great outdoors, keep yourself active, and very likely lose weight as well!

Spend More Time With Friends and Family

It always feels like you’re never spending enough time with your loved ones. So what better way to be closer with them than going on an adventure together. Bonding with family and friends can make for wonderful memories you’ll have years down the road. Head out with the guys for a Vegas weekend, bring the whole family down to Orlando for an experience in the most magical place on earth, or share a cocktail on a beautiful beach during sunset with your significant other. Spending more time together means optimizing the time you spend together, which is the perfect reason to get out and travel. You could have something to look forward to every year!

Learn Something New

Of course when you’re visiting a new place, you’re always going to learn something new. But you can really plan a vacation around gaining some knowledge and create a full vacation itinerary with that intention. In cities like Washington D.C., you could throw a rock in any direction and hit a wonderful museum full of great information to absorb. Other popular destinations for some educational value are the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio; both are great for die hard fans or for a fun, family-friendly educational vacation!
