Travelling light isn’t easy, especially if you have lots of things that you want to take with you. I am the sort of person who takes lots of different outfits because I don’t know what the weather is going to be like and I want to be prepared which means I find it extremely hard to pack light.
If you’re going away for the weekend or even when you’re going on holiday, you will find that by packing light you are making it a lot easier on yourself to get around quickly and without too much hassle.
Remember to only take essentials with you, if you over pack you will end up regretting it. Having all that extra weight to carry around with you will wear you down and make you miserable so by travelling light you are less likely to get stressed out as you aren’t carrying a heavy bag around with you that is making you ache.
When you are lugging a heavy bag around with you, you just want to stop, sit down and take a break. You are more likely to make rushed decisions based on the fact that you’re tired, fed up and you simply have had enough of walking around.
Over packing also means that it feel like it is taking you hours to get anywhere. If you only take essentials then you are more likely to know where everything is, which means you can access it easily without having too much trouble. We’ve all been in that situation where we have to find something in our bags but because we’ve got too much stuff it makes it harder to find, we start to panic and stress ourselves out, whereas if we didn’t pack as much then we probably wouldn’t ‘t be in that situation.
