Sure, your mom might not be the first person you think of when you think about taking a vacation, but we think she should be.

How about we give you 7 reasons why it's the best idea ever to travel with your mom? Ready, set, go!

1. It Makes the Best Gift Ever

Your mom will love anything you buy her but better than a necklace or scented candle is time spent together making memories and having fun.

Surprise her with plane tickets or a pre-booked cruise and you'll see your mom at her most excited.

2. It'll Get You Both Out of Your Comfort Zone

Take turns calling the shots in an unfamiliar location.

Traveling with your mom will get you both doing things you might not do if you were on a trip with someone your own age. Being out of your comfort zone with someone else is actually proven to strengthen your bond.

3. Get to Know Each Other Even Better

You've grown and changed a lot since you moved out of the house, and your mom might not get to see the grown up man or woman you've become on a regular basis.

Traveling together gives you the opportunity to show off who you've become, and who your mom raised you to be.

At the same time, your mom is no longer the disciplinarian trying to teach you 'right vs wrong,' and so it's fun to get to know her on a more friendly and personal level.

Travel brings out the fun side in all of us. Embarking on new adventures together will open the door to discuss things you've never talked about before – especially if a few glasses of wine is involved.

Time is on your side! So, chat into the late hours without qualms, you'll cherish these conversations for life.

4. You'll (Likely) Make Good Travel Buddies

There's always the mother-daughter or mother-son duo that doesn't get along so well, but, for the most part, you'll travel well with your parents because they're the ones who taught you what travel is all about.

More than likely, you'll want to splurge on similar things – be it a nice hotel or fancy food. "I got it from my mama" is a legit quote because you probably did get a whole lot from your mama.

Of course, everyone will have slightly different priorities when traveling, let's say one of you wants to lounge around the spa and the other wants to go for a hike.

The great thing about traveling with your mom is that you don't have to be fake, you can be completely honest with one another. Talk it out and find a comfortable balance that works for you both.

5. Cross Things Off Your Bucket List Together

Create a bucket list with your mom and I bet you both have some of the same things in mind.

Checking things off your bucket list is always fun but doing it with your mom is that much cooler. Plus, by making it a yearly tradition you can continue to check off items each and every year.

Make the whole extended family envious at the next get-together as you and your mom share a giggle over bull riding in Spain or floating down the river in a tire in Thailand.

Remember, you don't have to go far to find bucket list items worth checking off your list. Even a staycation can offer the ideal opportunity to try something you've always wanted to do.

6. It's the Best Way to Catch Up

Catching up over an hour-long dinner or an AM brunch only leaves so much time, and it's never enough time. This is especially true if you don't live close to your mom.

A trip, no matter if it's a quick weekend jaunt or a week-long journey, gives you all the time you need to catch up on one another's lives.

7. Form Incredible Memories to Last a Lifetime

No one likes to admit it, but mom won't be around forever. This is your chance to make memories you can cherish forever.

You'll never regret taking the time to travel with your mom.

These are the most precious memories life gives us so take plenty of pictures and videos and cherish every single second of the adventure.

How To Be More Confident In Just 5 Minutes, Try It

We're Not Born With It

We weren't born confident. Confidence is a quality we need to cultivate by thinking outside of the box and refusing to live only to please others. Think back to when you were a child. You didn't need to be confident then, you simply cried when things didn't go your way. But, as you grew up, you start to notice the impact of how others see you and you become self-conscious. We're the ones that give power to others by letting what they think to dictate our confidence when really it's how we feel about ourselves that will radiate confidence.

That's why all it takes to be more confident is five minutes designed to rewire your thought pattern to bring the attention back where it belongs.

Strike A Power Pose

Guess what? No one is confident all the time. Not even those who have a full makeup and hair team every single day. The key is knowing how to switch confidence back on when it seems fleeting. You can actually trick your own brain.

Go into a room where you can be alone. It helps if there's a mirror. Then extend your arms up in a "V" shape. Stand as tall and as big as you possibly can. This is called the Victory stance and is a power pose. Keep your feet shoulder-width apart ad your chin up, and stand there in silence for two whole minutes. It might feel awkward for the first 30 seconds, but it'll fix your posture, bring a smile to your face and restore your confidence. Take that power out the door with you by keeping your head held high and your body standing straight.

Maintain Eye Contact

Eye Contact is arguably the most powerful form of communication. When interacting with others, looking them in the eye makes them feel seen and acknowledges every word they say. When you keep your gaze fixated on them, after a while you genuinely stop noticing everything happening around them, and in a way you make them feel like the only person in the world.

You can do the same thing to yourself. Stand by a mirror and stare straight into your own and watch the world melt away. Remind yourself with the intention that at this moment all that matters is you. Everything else is on hold because to face it, you need to first check-in with yourself. You have all the power to make that happen because you love yourself, you have a purpose, and you matter. Remember who you are and ground yourself.

Lose The "Ums"

A confident person articulates and speaks with intention. Instead of blurting out whatever comes to mind, show assertiveness by taking a second to think before you speak. Not only will this help you lose the ums and uhs but it will make what you say seem more valuable. the same goes for awkward giggles at the end of a sentence.

Laughing when you're done is like saying that everything you just said was a joke and completely discredits you. You can practice this even as you think. Train your thought patterns so they flow.

Relive Your Most Glorious Moment

This step is most beneficial at the moment right before you're about to be in the spotlight. Close your eyes. Think of the last time that you were proud of yourself in a situation. Remember how you felt, what you said, and why you did it.

Remember how successful you were and how capable you are of creating such success. Imagine all the details of that last moment of success and take the confidence it brings you into your next glorious moment.

Recreate Your Environment

Do you know why some people who spend their days in offices aren't happy no matter how much money they make? It's because of their environment, constantly being in front of a screen and between four walls. Some research shows that taking even just two minutes to walk in greenery can completely change your mood. Remember that happiness is confidence so you want to be stimulating your brain and its perception of the world in every way that you can.

Whenever you're running low on confidence go and connect with nature, or experience a new place, or just change your environment to somewhere that makes you feel good and watch how it changes your mood. This then will reflect in how you present yourself to others.

Reframe Your Breath

​When you're anxious and experiencing low self-esteem, your breathing physically changes. You start breathing heavily, and faster. The more shallow your breathing becomes, the worst you feel.

Instead, try breathing deeply with intention. Stand up and breathe in for five seconds, completely filling your diaphragm, and then breath out for another five seconds. As you take control of your breath, start visualizing a future where you are in control. Tell yourself "I breath in peace and I breath out anxiety" If you do this for a couple of minutes, you should feel relaxed and in control afterward.
