Why Traveling Alone is Like Therapy

There is no greater relationship than the one you have with yourself. Traveling alone allows you to tap into your innermost desires. It is a time for you to choose. You can do anything you want, when you want, and it is a moment for you to focus completely on yourself. Think of it as an occasion for you to consider your wants and needs, as the time alone provides you with a period for reflection.

“The inner journey of travel is intensified by solitude…

you go away for a long time and you return a different person…” –Paul Theroux

Traveling alone is like therapy and can be the healthiest way to recharge and refocus! Here’s why:

  1. Traveling alone teaches you that it is okay to please yourself.

Life can be busy. Scratch that – life IS busy! There are things to do, people to please, and a lot of the time people forget about the most important person who deserves your attention: you. Planning a journey alone enables you to really think about your needs and wants and gives you the chance to focus on your own wellbeing.

  1. Traveling alone doesn’t always keep you solo.

Traveling alone creates a time for you to explore your inner self and let that guide you. As you go on an adventure of self-exploration and do what you want when you want, you will find yourself meeting other individuals who have similar interests to you. Not only will this journey broaden your horizons, it will provide you with an opportunity to meet others from all over the world and learn about people from different cultures. You may even make a new friendship that will last a lifetime.

  1. You will learn to embrace yourself.

Traveling alone is a time for you to remember (or learn) who you are. It teaches you how to work through discomfort and empowers you to come out of your shell. It is real, raw, and sometimes uncomfortable. However, it will remind you of what you love and give you a chance to see what you enjoy without others influencing your opinions.
