  1. You need a challenge. Travel is a challenge and it’s going to get you out of your day to day routine and feel good for it. If you are feeling stuck in your daily routines, then knowing you have a trip ahead of you is going to vastly improve your daily life. If you feel like you need a change of scenery or a hike in a mountain range with a view, then you’ll be able to challenge yourself with a new routine when you book your trip. So how about a hotel with a rooftop bar? Overcoming challenges that you can gain from travelling will boost your energy and make you feel much more accomplished.
