Streamline International Shares The Perks of our Business Industry
on September 15, 2017
“In the business industry, one of the best parts and perks would be that there is a reason to travel. Travelling for work purposes also creates some time to travel for leisure as well. We’re able to mix in both together when the opportunity arose and had it not been for us being in this industry, we would not be traveling as much,” says Ben Streames, managing director of Streamline USA. Recently at Streamline USA, some promotions have given us the ability to take a road trip to Miami. “Being a big traveler, I make the most of travel opportunities that have been created by this industry,” says Ben Streames of Streamline International. There are so many different traditions and atmospheres even within each state of the USA — that traveling lets us witness that. Our road trip to Miami has given us a glimpse of the Florida culture, climate, and experience.
According to an article “ 14 Scientific Effects Traveling Has On Your Mind, Body And Soul” the writer, Ashley Fern, discusses the negative and positive attributes to traveling. She writes “Traveling — the best way to escape life’s problems and recharge your emotional batteries. We only get roughly 15 vacation days per year, so we must be careful in our traveling decisions, regardless of the fact that we’d like four times that amount.” Some of which fern mentions are:
“Extended travel can actually affect your personality. It’s no surprise that traveling takes you outside of your comfort zone. In fact, this is perhaps why people crave traveling to the extent they do. In psychology, there is this concept of the “Big Five,” which refers to the five dominant characteristics that describe a person’s personality. These traits include neuroticism, openness, extraversion, conscientiousness, and agreeableness. The more travelers interact with new people and immerse themselves in a new culture; the more their goals are aligned with the openness personality trait.”
“It increases your emotional stability. Since traveling helps put life into perspective, it also has the beneficial byproduct of making you less anxious when it comes to changes in your day-to-day life. Instead of coming at these changes with unease and angst, travelers are more open and willing to accept things that deviate from their standard routine.”
“You’re more likely to fall in love out of your comfort zone. How much easier is it to fall in love when you are removed from your reality? You leave all of your worries and responsibilities at home while venturing off to new and exciting places. Life just seems better when we’re relaxed, so it would only make sense falling in love outside of your comfort zone is such a common occurrence.”
“All these factors are true because we’ve witnessed it happening whether we travel for business purposes or leisure. It’s a great experience, and at Streamline USA we instill that type of daring and chance-taking personality upon our representatives,” says Ben Streames of Streamline International. We’re excited that our industry gives us the opportunity to travel and because of that, we’re able to grow in different ways. We always look forward to what’s next.
