10 Quotes for Those Who Need to Get Away Right Now

10 Quotes for Those Who Need to Get Away Right Now

Maybe you’re suffering from a serious case of wanderlust. Or, possibly, from your dull and unchanging routine. Whatever the case, you know when it’s time to get away.

Some common symptoms include: a decline in your inspiration or creativity, the people and places around you begin to become a bore…or, even worse, you start to feel as if you’re losing yourself. As each day passes by, you feel as if you are sinking further and further into a trap. This trap is your life.

You may be in so deep that you start to wonder: How did I ever get here in the first place? Instead of wondering or having regret, the best thing you can do is to make an immediate change. Some execute drastic changes — such as quitting their job, chopping off their hair or dropping everything to get away right now. If you’re like many of us in the world…feeling stuck, confused or even lost on the next move in life, take a moment to reflect on the following 10 quotes.

10. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” – Saint Augustine

    9. Go outside. Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone. Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realise that that is enough to be happy. There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it.” –Charlotte Eriksson

      8. “Sometimes you need to step outside, get some fresh air and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be.” –Gossip Girl

        7. “You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.”  –Alan Alda

                      10 Most Entertaining Things To Do During A Long Journey

                      There are many more fun and eventful things to do to pass away time during a long flight or train journey. Apart from sleeping and continuously playing games on mobile, you can utilize this quality time in more creative ways.

                      Should we take a look at all those amazing and curious ways to kill time during the long journey? Let’s go.

                      1. Become the Next Big Thing in the Writing World

                      Yes!! It’s time to become an Author. When I watch a romantic movie or read some fictional story, I feel like writing something of my own. If you feel the same, then there is no better time than a long journey, especially when you are traveling alone. Don’t forget that JK Rowling got the idea of Harry Potter while she was traveling on a train.

                      2. Become a Philosopher

                      Enough of reading and listening to various thoughts and quotations of other people. We all have experienced life and learned a lot, and it’s time to put your ideas into words.

                      Or you can try to determine the meaning of life, what you have experienced and things you have learned from it. Remember, every success or failure and try to find the philosophical reason behind it. It will help your mind to calm down.

                      3. Card Games? Invent a New One

                      I have no issues with claiming that Card Games has always been the most preferred way to pass the time during an extended journey. But don’t stop there, you have enough time to tweak some rules, do some experiment and invent your own card game. Call it anything you want, make sure that new game is entertaining enough to attract more players.

                      4. Go into the Fantasy World

                      Most of the time I put myself into Hogwarts, next moment I am fighting for the wizard world. You can do that too, and it’s not that tough. Going into a fantasy world is the most exciting thing you can do while traveling alone.

                      5. Day Dream

                      Day Dreaming is sometimes helpful and helps your brain do some exercise. You can be at your creative best. I have found realistic solutions of toughest problems while day dreaming. You can be more open minded and understanding at this time.

                      Daydream about being a singer or actor or richest person in the world. It gives you the motivation to do well and achieve your goals.

                      6. Time to Plan your Dream Project

                      This one is my favorite. You get enough time to work on your plans or dream projects. Travelling is the best time to brainstorm on your next product, which can be very efficient. Think about all pros and cons, praise yourself, criticize yourself and come up with best possible solutions because no one is there to judge you or your work at this moment.

                      7. Movie Marathon

                      Not only weekends, but a long journey is also an excellent time to start a film marathon. Create a list and watch movies online. Tune into any of the popular video streaming sites or app and watch your favorite TV Series and movies.

                      8. Breakdown your Goals into Realistic Steps

                      While you are traveling, you can set realistic and possible steps to achieve your aim. Spend your time in breaking down your goals and plan to achieve each small one in a given period. You can set your daily routine, work on your work-life balance and plan for a more systematic approach in day to day life. Don’t forget that walking through small steps is the key to reaching on top.

                      9. Read a Book

                      Reading will never go out of fashion. Always carry a book with you. It is the most amazing thing to spend some time with, especially when you are alone and have lots of free time. Fiction or non-fiction, stories of any kind will always entertain you and enlighten you with new life lessons.

                      10. Eavesdrop: Its Actually Entertaining

                      The most entertaining thing to do during the long flight or train journey. You get to listen to amazing and exciting stories of the ordinary public, which sometimes are more interesting than Soap operas. I, once eavesdropped on a couple’s fight and seriously the reason was hilarious.

                      I got entertained like never before.

                      The Bottom Line

                      Have some fun, do some exciting things, don’t waste your time in sleeping and playing the same game again and again.
