What Inspires You To Travel?

Introduction on travelling and its need 

Life operates as a business cycle. Business is an economic and risk-taking activity. Hence, life needs to be economical, healthy, and risk-taking. Otherwise, it will be boring and bulky. Adventure and tragedy make life full of enthusiasm. As a business cycle, life sometimes experience depression and occasionally lifts up and reaches a peak. When you fall, then motivation plays an efficient role. Confidence and coolness fill up your remorseful life.

Well, travel can be helpful to sort your withered life. Generally, it happens that we tend to face a loss in interest. Repetitive activities make us feel low and easily drained. Not only this, but also your home seems to be boring. The same scene outside your window drives your mind towards irritation. Travelling is the right answer to a dull and irritating environment. Hardly, you get much time to travel. Life and the world are racing fast. You need to gather full planning for leaving to enjoy the holidays. “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy”. This proverb is extremely clear and accurate. Breaks are required by every single being living on this planet. 

Preparing a nice trip with great memorabilia is included in travelling. But wait, it is not necessary to be expensive and eye-catching. You can start with your own city or the outskirts of your city. What needs to be remembered is that the place should be relaxing and comfortable—a place away from busy towns. Travel demands money too. Obviously, you will make budgetary plans. So, plan according to your budget will be great for you. 

Travelling doesn’t compel you to travel to other continents and countries but to know your own culture. Therefore, learning and exploring your surroundings make you more aware and responsible. It is similar to meditating. Hence, meeting and being friendly with a culture won’t harm you. Instead, you will be more curious to look forward. This will enhance your knowledge and experience. You will seek travelling as attractive and mood refreshing. 

Travelling is unbiased. Everyone can travel at any time. Your age or health issues can’t stop you. Some people say, “Oh! I can’t travel. My knee joints don’t support it now”. Or “I’m too old to travel”. Sounding dull and low will never give them the courage to face challenges. Just go back to your childhood memories and live your young life once again. 

There is one thing fascinating about travelling. The thing is you meet a lot of new people around you. Mainly when someone is enjoying a solo trip. Making connections with new people is not bad. You may experience their lifestyle, working practices, culture, traditions, fashion, and preferences. It helps you to grasp more about the world—the sign made by nature- The Creation of God. The feeling is so mesmerizing. Once you visit a place, you will come back or visit more places. Your mind will fill itself from memories. Hence, it will always refresh you in the future.

Work is always finding you to keep you busy. It is your responsibility to complete your work on time. Still, duty doesn’t operate unless and until authority is not well. The power is your brain, which demands rest and relaxation.

Impacts of Travelling

1. Improve Your Health 

Healthy body keeps your life stable and active. Movement is really important for body development. Sitting on one chair and not enjoying the outer world. It may really affect your senses. Imagine yourself captivated in a prison or room. This is how your brain feels while you are doing all work and no play. 

For this busy schedule, there is only one remedy and that’s travelling. Taking breaks from your regular and busy schedule is no harm to you. Even your relaxed and cheerful mind responds frequently. Mind blockage is common which certainly makes you anxious and later depressed. Fresh mind is home to new creative ideas. Your thinking power terminates slowly while you are working,working and only working. 

2. Cuts From Your Daily Routine

Four walls, one corner, you are sitting with your work and all eating, sleeping stuff there. Your life loses charm and glow. As if someone has put fevicol glue on your chair and you have no option. Let the child inside you explore more about the surroundings. The time is no longer, it’s never ending. Breath deeply and find ways to bring excitement in daily routine.

Travelling is not just about counting the places and budget. Visiting other places enhances your knowledge. There are N numbers of languages in the world. Specially, in India every state has its own way of speech and culture. North, south, east and west every direction has a different scenario. Himalayan mountain range in the north and north eastern states, plateau region in the south, central plain region and western deserts. Still, a lot to know about many places. Not only knowledge increases but also you get to know your preferences and travelling activities. You do bookings, research, analyse, pay attention. While, travelling it is all on your shoulders to handle budgets and enjoy to the fullest. 

4. Capture Your Memories

Memories make us because we relate and connect easily. What if memories die someday? I guess it will make an unhealthy world. Memories make us emotionally active. Our feelings and mind coordinate together to bring memories pictures in front of eyes. Hence, these memories are everlasting and beautiful in their own way. You cannot twist and mould them. Whenever, they will hit you. You will automatically start feeling great and happy. Reminding yourself about travel history really makes you experienced.

“Home Sweet Home” the value of these three words increases. When you are away for too long you miss regular things. Home is the most peaceful and caring place. Yes, caring because you remain safe and secure. Travelling is good but tiring too. Sometimes you had bad experiences. At that moment. you just wish to go back. It’s very simple to explain when you are near. You dont understand much but once you move out. You realise, “Oh! I ‘ m going away from my comfortable place”. You badly miss it and understand its importance in your life. 

Latest Bathroom Trends of 2020

What is better than lounging in a supremely elegant bathroom after a tiring day at work? After all, who does not love me-time sessions of freshening up around fragranced bathing salts and aromatic candles?

According to a study, the average person spends 3 months of his/her entire life in the bathroom. Gone are the days when people were alright with dimly lit bathrooms. 

The ambiance of your bathroom indeed affects the mood. We live in a fast-paced world and it is evident that bathroom trends have gained fame across the world. Looking at the up-gradations, we do not want you to be behind either. So put your creative mode on! It’s time to get rid of those yellowish flooring, fragile tiles, and diminutive bathtubs. Bringing out the home designer within you, we have come up with some of the latest bathroom trends of 2020. 

1. Freestanding Tubs

The classy freestanding tubs come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Mostly, these tubs are reclining at one end ideal for lounging while the sloping end is reserved for the drain. These tubs are ideal for those who have a shortage of space, but at the same time want to enjoy the luxury of bathtubs. Clawfoot, Japanese soaking, double-ended are some of the popular tubs you can consider buying. Besides looking elegant and sturdy, these also go along well with designer flooring.

You can place it anywhere in the bathroom, unlike built-in bathtubs which need to be placed along the wall. One of the prime benefits of these tubs is the hassle-free installation. Just call a plumber and be ready to enjoy a cozy bathing session in fragranced water mixed with natural bathing salts. 

2. Wall-mounted and Curving Bathroom Vanities

If you are still reading, we are sure you do not want to miss these appealing and eye-catching vanities. Wall-mounted and curving bathroom vanities have gained quite a reputation in the industry now. These vanities come in numerous deluxe styles and subtly comment on the overall look of your bathroom. With increasing demands, the vanities are now available with integrated sinks, dedicated shelvings for storing accessories, and many more.

Since bathroom vanities are the eccentric yet beautiful centerpieces,  people resort to double sinks rather than one to get the lavish look. Even wall-mounted or floating vanities work well if you have a compact bathroom but the downside is you have to be careful not to put a load on it. We recommend getting a sleek and grayish faucet installed as it goes well with all kinds of vanities. 

3. Integrated Sink and Shower Drains

If you are fond of hour-long hot and refreshing water baths, there’s no better alternative than a shower. The advancing technologies have made it possible for sinks and showers to share the same drain.

These drains have come out to be a trendsetter of 2020 as it makes your bathrooms look blessedly empty. So fret not and go for the best trend for your sumptuous bathroom. 

4. Marble Finishes

By any chance, we do not want you to miss the marble finishes of the bathroom. No matter how many amenities you include in your bathrooms to make it look luxurious if you do not have the right marble finishes you have done it all wrong. The unparalleled beauty of the bathroom is greatly determined by the aesthetic marble finishes you have used in your bathroom.

The glossy marble finishes look versatile and are easy to maintain as compared to other traditional and old-school finishes. Just an easy tip, do not let water stand on the surface of marble as it is quite porous and hence get discolored over time. 

5. White Fixtures

We bet no person would say white is so dull. Fittings of matte white have taken a sturdy position in the industry. White is the undisputed flag bearer of elegance and aristocracy and white fixtures have enjoyed a demand among those who have rich taste. Besides adding charm to the overall look, white makes a bathroom look spacious. No wonder 15.69% of the bathroom designs incorporate some tone of white.

White fixtures look extravagant with black faucets, warm rugs, or geometric designs. If you are considering a renovation white fixtures are your go-to option.  

6. Integrated Lightning

How can we miss the cool integrated lighting? 

Nobody likes to have a bath in a dimly lit and shabby bathroom. Bathroom lighting is one of the most famous and latest trends of 2020 and it is likely to remain so in the coming years. If you are considering mounting the lights in your tub and shower, designers recommend incorporating it at both ends rather than just one.

Start with ceiling-mounted lightening with shades of white and supreme yellow. Remember, do not pick up red hue as it may spoil the look of your bathroom. Most people also get lightning for vanities, sinks, and mirrors. Wherever you use them, just make sure you do not overdo with anything. Ideally, it is recommended to install lights of 75-100 watts. You can also consider using LEDs as it saves a lot on energy while being pocket-friendly.

 7. Rugs and Mats

Since we talked about the rugs previously, let us introduce it to you further. Rugs are fairly common in the bathrooms as a part of the latest bathroom trends of 2020. While rugs are not a good option for compact bathrooms, you can use these if you are blessed with a lot of space. Now you must be wondering about the hygiene.

Fret not, we have got this covered for you. Rugs made up of Egyptian cotton or just cotton are a great choice. These are easy to wash and do not accumulate much dirt. But if you are still double-minded about using rugs in your bathroom, you can go for bathroom mats. 

Bathroom mats are made up of memory foam covered by microfiber making its maintenance an easy task. Furthermore, bath mats soak up the water and hence prevent it from penetrating your expensive polished marble flooring. 

8. Minimalist Hidden Storage

If you dislike the view of the essentials lying in your bathroom nor you want the vanities to occupy the space, then there is no better alternative than hidden storages. The classy and bold storages are indeed in trend and give a minimalist look.

The best option is to go for built-in storages into the walls. These create an illusion of fully textured or polished walls depending on which one you chose, and you can easily store your essentials in it without letting anyone know. So, brace yourself for the minimalist look!

9. Plants

This might seem a bit weird and unconventional but plants in the bathroom are a thing. By the time you have read this, you must be wondering the bathroom is a moist place and how can you put little producers of oxygen there. Don’t worry, you need not place those plants which require adequate sunshine and water for growth. You can put snake plants, chlorophytes, Boston fern, and many more like these to add charm to your bathroom. These plants require moisture and few fertilizers to grow. Besides, they are mood enhancers and not to forget, you will get loads of fresh air.
