Travelling For Self Discovery

‘Turn your face toward the sun and the shadows will fall behind you’
The importance of finding one’s self is something every person should consider at least once in a while. Whether you choose to do this through travel, meditation, journaling or simply finding words that inspire us, it helps to remember that inner peace is inside each and every one of us waiting to be discovered.

If you are in need of an incentive to get things started, why not consider travelling as part of your experience? There are many holistic and well-being holidays widely available in many beautiful locations such as; Peru, Greece, Scotland, Thailand and Goa to name only a few. These relaxing retreats focus on transforming your mind, body and soul and come in extensive packages to ensure you begin the journey to self-discovery.


One activity that is very popular amongst modern explorers is the practice of yoga on beautiful, serene Islands such as Gozo. The peaceful atmosphere of the beach is a perfect location to focus on your practise. Yoga, the Sanskrit word for ‘union’, is a practise that uses posture and breathing techniques to induce relaxation and improve strength. Yoga usually proceeds onto the art of meditation as this is known to calm and compose the body and mind. There are many travellers packages that focus on meditation, you could visit a serene island but why not visit a Buddhist country such as Thailand to delve into the art of achieving a higher degree in concentration? There are many locations in Thailand to visit such as; the international Buddhist meditation centre in Bangkok or Suan Mokkh (the garden of liberation) in South Thailand. This practise helps to alleviate the stresses in your life by balancing your mental and emotional states, a welcome gift that can be used in your daily lifestyle.

Many people suffer from fatigue and stress signals from the body and may feel that it is time to take back control. There are retreats that offer this support through holistic detoxing in rural Italy. The beautiful, spa like environments allow you to deeply relax, let go and release limiting emotional blocks. Location and your surroundings are a key aspect to feeling ultimately ready to let go of any stresses that you may have generated from your home environment. Taking a relaxing day by the pool under the sun or even a challenging hike for the more adventurous of visitors are just a few ways in which you can enjoy a diverse atmosphere, climate and therefore a whole new experience in which you can release any stress. Holistic therapy is said to be an alternative medicine and caters to all aspects of people’s needs as a whole, whether it be your mind, body or soul that needs a little help in hand.

Delving into your inner self can give you some invaluable answers, after all no-one knows you better than yourself. You are your wisest guide.
