Central Idea: Traveling is not only to have fun, but to feel released from the day to day routine, as well as to increase health and understanding of the world that we live in and the things that it has to offer us.


(Monroe’s Motivated Sequence  Attention)

  1. (Attention getter)

Indeed, we have received the blessing to have 5 different senses. With these senses we can appreciate and enjoy what’s around us.  It seems that we’re small comparing to the many things that surround us. And it is even greater to think that we can take them and make the best use of them.

  1. (Reveal topic)

A. Today, I want to speak to you about one thing that can awake our 5 senses in a way that we can enjoy what we have around us. This way is by traveling.

B. Can it be true that something we love so dearly, yet rarely partake in, can have such health benefits as taking a vacation does? Hilaire Belloc once wrote: “I have wandered all my life, and I have also traveled; the difference between the two being, that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment.” As it turns out, we benefit greatly in many aspects of our lives by wandering, and traveling.

C. For some people traveling is a way of life and discover things. For others, it is a way to have fun and relax.

  1. (Establish credibility)

You might be asking, why taking time off helps you to work harder or more spirited..

Not because it is a Friday, but it is a fact well-known that everyone needs a vacation. I believe that human beings simply aren’t designed to expend energy continuously. Rather, we’re meant to pulse between spending and recovering energy.

IV.        (Central Idea)

However, in my message, I’m going to focus in the definition of traveling is not only to have fun, but to feel released from the day to day routine, as well as to increase health and understanding of the world that we live in and the things that it has to offer us.

 Now, in order to understand what traveling can do for us, I am going to talk about what the benefits of traveling are, like how traveling can be healthy, also the best places to travel, and what can you do if you don’t have enough resources like money to travel.


(Monroe’s Motivated Sequence  Need)

  1. First, I would like to start defining what travel is. Let me show you what Lisa St. Aubin de Teran, said about traveling: “Traveling is like flirting with life.” It’s like saying, “I would stay and love you, but I have to go, this is my station.” (SLIDE) In fact when we travel to a great place we don’t want to leave the place, but we want to enjoy it. Talking about enjoying traveling. Let me tell you some of the benefits that you can receive if you travel besides having fun. According to the U.S. Travel Association, these are some of the personal benefits of travel and taking a vacation

(a) Health Benefits

i.      I agree wholeheartedly that a fact said a vacation can cut a person’s risk of heart attack by 50 percent.

ii.     A fact said that middle-aged at high risk of disease who take frequent annual vacations are 21% less likely to die of any cause and 32% less likely to die of their coronary heart disease.

iii.      Leisure has been found to contribute to overall well-being by helping people maintain both their physical and mental health.

For example, a study of almost 20,000 Canadians showed that physically-active leisure has been found to directly contribute to higher levels of physical and mental health – especially during times of stress. Higher levels of participation in physically-active leisure – and travel is definitely physically-active leisure – also helped people suppress high levels of work stress.

Another study of Canadians showed that there are long-term health benefits of using leisure as a coping mechanism during stressful times.

  1. If health benefits were great, there are still more. There is no doubt that, getting out of your little corner of the earth, and experiencing other cultures and places is surely an important ingredient to overall health and also in relationship, educational or cultural benefits. . Here are some findings by the Travel Industry Association in a report.

 (b) Relationship, Educational, and Cultural Benefits

i.      Women who take more vacations are more satisfied with their marriages. That may be because:

  1. At least four out of ten travelers feel more romantic on vacation (42%), and nearly one-third admit to making love more often on vacation (31%).
  2. It could also be due to the fact that over half of employed Americans say they come back feeling reconnected with their family after vacation (53%).

ii. and as a student, pursuing study abroad or participate in an international exchange program is another opportunity to explore new cultures.

  1. Majority of the students who travelled in international exchange program felt they had become more open-minded, flexible, confident, and tolerant as a result of their travel experiences as they learn how to talk interact with people from other cultures. In addition, most of them admit that the primary benefit of these travels is a desire for more travel.

iii.      Even the anticipation of vacation travel generates an increase in positive feelings about one’s life as a whole, family, economic situation, and health.
