Make Travel A Bigger Part Of Your Life


Travel can be a fun way to mix up your routine and explore new destinations. There are many benefits that come from stepping outside your comfort zone every so often.

You may be someone who is quite busy and hasn’t had the time to see the world. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t start thinking about doing so now and in the future. Here you can learn how to make travel a bigger part of your life so you can get away more frequently. 

Start Saving Your Money


Traveling isn’t cheap and the costs add up quickly. You’ll want to have money for getting to your destination and spending money once you arrive. You want to make sure you have the funds to get away when you are ready to take a vacation. Therefore, it’s best to create a travel account and start saving up your money now. You want to make sure you have the money you need saved up and that you can access it when you’re ready to take a trip. Saving up your money for traveling will help you stay motivated to get away every so often.

Consider A Career Change


You may currently work a desk job and have set hours from nine to five. While it’s a good way to make a living this type of situation isn’t for everyone. Instead, venture out and consider a new position or role that will be more exciting. One idea is to look into OK travel nurse jobs so you can get away more often. You’ll not only be able to travel around from job to job but you’ll be helping people too which will make you feel good. This type of job can be especially rewarding if you are someone who lives alone and would like to be around people more often. 

Make A Wish List of Destinations


Sometimes all you need is to feel a little motivation to go on a trip. One way to get yourself excited about traveling is to do your homework in advance. Take the time to research possible destinations and places you may want to check out. Sit down and make a wish list of spots that you are interested in exploring. Put these items in priority order and start to figure out the cost of each so you can budget for your trips appropriately. Having a travel bucket list that you can start checking off one by one will allow you to stay on course by going on more trips during the year.

Don’t Be Afraid to Travel Solo


One reason you may be hesitant to travel more is because you’re all alone and have no one to travel around with. Make travel a bigger part of your life by not being afraid to travel solo. It can be very rewarding for you to head out on an adventure by yourself. Think about how nice it’ll be to create your own itinerary and not have to worry about other people and what they want to do. If you are feeling lonely while traveling you can always participate in activities or excursions with other travelers in the area. Think about all the time you’ll have on your hands to meditate and relax when you are willing to travel alone.

Take Vacation Days from Work


While it’s good to work and have an income you want to make sure that you also create some balance in your life. Take advantage of long weekends and holidays so you can book more vacations throughout the year. You can’t be afraid to unplug and take some time away from your job if you want to make travel a bigger part of your life. All you have to do is plan ahead and take some time off from working. Make sure that you work ahead at the office and have someone covering for you. This way you won’t need to be attached to checking your messages and working while you are on your vacation. 




Traveling can be very beneficial and is a fun way to explore new destinations. All it takes is being a little proactive on your end and it won’t be long before you’re able to go on more trips. These are some starting points and ideas that will help you make this a reality. Most importantly, unplug and be in the moment when you do take the time to travel. You want to return home feeling relaxed and happy that you went on a vacation in the first place.

30 thoughts on “How To Make Travel A Bigger Part Of Your Life”

  1. I think I would never have travelled India, Nepal and Thailand if I had never dared to venture solo. Some of my best life memories have been from solo travel – but I made some of the best friends too! Just make sure to do it safely and plan!

  2. I love traveling solo. I was really scared to do it for a long time but it’s made my life so much richer not waiting around for everyone else to get off work/have money to travel. Plus I get to do exactly what I want to do!

  3. Great post. I’m all for traveling but to travel solo, I don’t think I can do it anymore. So much has changed in the traveling world. This year, I do intend on traveling more with my family.

    1. Some folks absolutely adore, traveling solo. Some folks absolutely adore, traveling with friends.Still some folks absolutely adore, traveling with family. Whichever way you love it it’s a great thing to do.

  4. Who doesn’t love travel! Thanks for addressing some of the impediments to creating travel plans – especially traveling alone.

  5. I do think you make some good points and I always travel solo, either for work or vacation. I do travel with friends of course, but I think the notion that you musst be traveling with someone or not traveling at all is absurd.
