Apart from this, traveling is also great for your physical and mental health. According to the Chopra Center, numerous studies show that travel can reduce stress, improve heart and brain health, increase creativity, maintain good health, relieve depression, and more. Additionally, traveling can help change your perspective because when you are away from the stress of your home environment, you can see your problems from an outsider's perspective.

Taking a break from hiding allows you to return to "real life" with fresh eyes, which can help you see solutions that aren't so obvious when you're stuck in the rut of everyday life. If you don't get a Sunshine internship, try making travel a priority this summer, even if it's just a day out of town to go camping. You can even connect with a women-only travel networking group called Girls LOVE Travel, which encourages single female travelers to meet each other on the road. It also helps them find safe accommodation around the world. Traveling really helps reveal how easily we can get caught up in our own lives and miss out on the amazing things happening around us. That being said, someone has to grab the job, so you should apply for a Sunshine internship opportunity as soon as possible.
