How To Change Your Perspective? Take A Flight

When the founder of Seek A Therapy was going through his own challenges he took a flight. A flight from the UK to Colombia, completely alone to meet a friend who came from the country. The seat he chose was next to a window and it was just as well because of the effect looking at the view had.

How to change your perspective

As the airplane took off from the ground and he looked down he watched the cars become smaller and smaller, like toy cars and the trees becoming more like broccoli than the tall woodlands that they are to us on earth. Passing over beautiful oceans and mountainous ranges, being above the clouds it gave a sense of wonder to life again.

It is at this point that his problems lost their power over him. His perspective began to change and the wonder of the world we live in began to become a newfound perspective. If you can, try to take time out of your life’s issues and fly somewhere beautiful.

    As they say, everybody sees his problems as biggest. It is all about perspective. Same goes with most things that are causing stress to us.
