Usain Bolt and Jamaica take gold in Relay 2016 olympics Rio

Posted by Anup Baral | August 20, 2016 :
Usain Bolt and the Jamaican 4x100m relay team took home gold in the main event of the Olympics track & field slate on Friday night.
There was no letting up for Usain Bolt as he easily won gold in the 200 metres on a rainy night in Rio, keeping the sprinter on course for an Olympic "treble treble" ahead of the 4 x 100 metres relay. The Jamaican seemed disappointed with his time - 19.78 seconds - the same as in his semi. Canada's Andre de Grasse came second ahead of Christophe Lemaitre of France - who was delighted to take bronze after pipping Britain's Adam Gemili by only thousandths of a second.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
