Why People Aren't Going On Vacations Enough



Vacations are something that we tend to associate with the summer. They're what so many people wait all year round for - to finally have their time away in a wonderful country of their choice, passing the time however they please. But having said that, unfortunately people are going away less and less, and that's for multiple different reasons. It all varies on people's circumstances, but just because it may not feel like the right time, doesn't mean that it isn't. You see, the right time doesn't actually exist - it's made up. You are the one that decides when the time is right, and you are in control of your own destiny, and the sooner you realise that, the sooner you will allow yourself to live a full and exciting life the way you have dreamed of. So if you've been thinking about having a holiday to Sri Lanka, or walking the streets of Bali, or swimming in the oceans of Australia - do it. The world is your oyster, and if you have goals that you want to reach, there's no reason you should have to wait any longer.


Here's how.


The Money
One of the biggest reasons that people opt out of going away for the year, is because they simply can't afford it. Bills and other maintenance fees are too darn expensive and you have no extra cash to fork out on a holiday as you're already only scraping by. - This is the unfortunate case for a lot of people, but there are always options out there. You could take out a loan for a holiday and then gradually pay back what you borrowed in your own time. If you go down this route, just make sure to compare interest rates before settling with a company. Or you could get a second job part-time on the weekends to get some extra money.



The Fear
Sometimes you may keep making excuses not to do something, only to realize that the real reason is because you're scared. This is nothing to be embarrassed about - believe it or not, a lot of people suffer from anxiety before going away on holiday. It tends to be a mixture of a lot of things, like being in a country or place that you aren't familiar with. The new foods that you have never tasted before. New people and cultures, and even languages that you don't understand. This can all be very overwhelming, especially if you're not used to the sudden change, but if you keep holding yourself back out of fear, you will never get anywhere in life. So embrace the nerves and turn them into adrenaline that makes you feel alive.

With these examples, you are able to see that all things have a solution, you just need to open your eyes and look in the right places. And remember, a holiday doesn't need to happen during the summer months - you can go away whenever you want to, and it actually works out a lot cheaper when you travel out of season too...
