Summer is finally upon us, and you’re probably being bombarded by countless vacation photos every time you open Instagram. If you feel jealousy whenever you see picture-perfect travel posts, here are some strategies you can use to overcome travel envy.
Remember that social media doesn’t always reflect the reality of people’s experiences. There’s more to life than dreamy travel photos, and you never know the real stories behind them.
Instead of feeling bad about not being able to jet off abroad, keep your love for travel alive by exploring the natural beauty, landmarks, and cultural sites of your local area.
Traveling doesn’t come cheap, but you don’t have to spend a fortune to do it. Explore budget-friendly travel options that suit your financial situation instead of waiting to save up enough money for popular destinations and lavish hotels.
Instead of envying other people for exploring the world, try to change your outlook and use their adventures as inspiration for your next trip.
Social Media Limit
If you took all of these steps and still feel travel envy, mute post and stories, or consider unfollowing accounts that trigger you. It may not be the healthiest way to deal with this problem, but sometimes it’s better not knowing what other people are up to.
