2. break away from stress and routine

Nowadays, we spend our days dealing with deadlines, tasks, errands, and other activities.  Whether these are a result of work, school, extracurricular activities, or household duties, they often bring stress to our daily lives.

While stress can be positive because it keeps us alert and ready to prevent and avoid danger it can also becomes negative when a person faces continuous challenges without relief or relaxation. It has been shown that continuous chronic stress can cause health problems.  So, by breaking away from your daily routine you can get relief from the continuous stress.

Amazingly, if you can break away from the stress together with your spouse or family on your family vacation, the outcome is way powerful than if you do it yourself!  (Picture: Credit to  Pixabay/AJil111)


3. bring new perspective to your life

If you travel with your family abroad, or other cities that may have different cultures from where you are it will always create new experiences they you and your family never forget.....

Adventure family travel, local excursion, local culinary class will teach your children about the world they live in, cultures different from their own, and the benefits of being open-minded.

Most of the time, people always take everything for granted and forget how lucky they are to have healthy food, nice clothes on their back and a roof over their head. Especially kids and teenagers of the modern world as they assume everything will be provided on a constant basis. If you have a family vacation at rural but tourism places in Indonesia, Thailand,  Mexico or the Caribbean, you can show them just how lucky they really are and how thankful they should be for what they have. Seeing how other people live in the less developed countries will make them so much more grateful for what they were born into or give.  (Picture: Credit to USAID/Cambodia)
