What Traveling and Woodworking Can Give You

Have you ever tried wood splitting? It’s a bit of a challenge, right? Compared to traveling you might think woodworking is more tedious and taxing. You might even think woodworking and traveling by road has nothing in common. Well, hold on tight because this article will prove you wrong.

Read the list below to know what both activities can give you.

A Sharpened Mind

Traveling, whether by road, railway, air, or whatever, is a mental exercise. It enables you to get out of your mundane routine and see new sights, hear new sounds, and experience new feelings in an unfamiliar yet beautiful world. Traveling allows your mind to be resourceful, cautious, and so on. When you travel, your concern for your safety becomes a priority, enabling you to sharpen your problem-solving and decision-making skills. The same goes when you work with wood. Woodworking, especially wood splitting, allows you to focus on the task at hand, because you can’t give half of your attention when working with tools! Woodworking also increases your ability to be familiar with tools and their uses, which is an excellent mental workout.

A Chance to Be Creative

Woodworking allows you to build different and distinct objects on your own. It fires up the creative side in you and makes you love the idea of creating based on your imagination. Traveling also enables you to try new things and make new memories with new people, food, places, etc. Both activities even boost your self-confidence and make you more independent.

A Healthier Body

When you visit another country, it’s only normal for you to go around town and transfer from one place to another. All the walking, running, jogging, and other physical activities can strengthen your body. Swimming, hiking, exploring places on foot—these can all contribute to an enhanced immune system and stronger muscles. Likewise, woodworking can contribute to a healthier body by enabling you to carry and split logs, handle tools, move materials, and more. Lifting equipment can tone your muscles in the long run and can even improve the health of your bones.

A Stress-Free Life

Woodworking and traveling both get rid of cortisol, which is the stress hormone. These activities release feel-good hormones such as oxytocin and dopamine, allowing you to forget the troubles for a while and enjoy your life. It’s probably the reason why after traveling or woodworking, you feel relaxed and exhausted at the same time. It’s a paradox, but I’m sure you know what that feels. If you don’t, it only means you need to travel more and be more involved in woodworking.
