Curiosity is a key component of successful intercultural communication.
To encourage my own curiosity, I like to take 15 or 30 minutes on a regular basis to visualize a dream trip. I identify a place based on how I feel that day and try to make it as real as possible. If it’s cold out, I might choose a warm island trip. Or, I might want to really get into the season and choose a snowy Nordic adventure.
I visualize the details of the surroundings, the textures of the things around me, the smells, and sounds. It’s a great stress reliever and mood booster!
