Have we really turned into a sedentary society? Some older generations tend to say this is a product of our millennial generation’s “addiction” to technology. They argue that we are glued to our smartphones, laptops, and tablets. Constantly scrolling through social media feeds or texting with friends, we never get up off the couch, explore, or even go outside anymore.
However, I’d argue the exact opposite. This millennial generation actually can’t sit still. We are always outdoors, whether we are surfing in the morning, hiking during the day or doing yoga at night. With an insatiable desire for adventure, millennials are active travelers. As cliché as it sounds, the sky is the limit when it comes to exploring the world and all it has to offer. We also feel a strong responsibility to protect the environment and a commitment to healthy living.
