How can the Camino de Santiago change your life?

There are many people who say that the Camino de Santiago has become a very important experience for them, even changing their lives. There are many reasons why a person chooses to make this pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago, just as there are many ways in which the Camino de Santiago can affect your life and bring peace and serenity to it.

Whether you do the Camino de Santiago in a month or simply in 5 days, this experience can change your life. Any Jacobean route is good to achieve it and bring out the best in a person. The physical effort is, in some cases, quite a challenge to follow, however it also brings as a result one of the most revealing moments for some pilgrims.

It helps you overcome fears and limitations

While training will help you overcome any obstacles you encounter on the Camino, that doesn't mean that every single stage will become a challenge to achieve. Every time you manage to overcome all the impediments you encounter on the Camino you will realize that with effort and perseverance everything can be achieved, a rule that can be applied both on this pilgrimage route and in your daily routine. 

With time you will be able to remember some problems like the bad weather, the long stages, the sore feet that you might feel during the Camino, however what pilgrims stay with is that feeling of overcoming.

It allows you to find your peace and harmony

The Iberian Peninsula has different landscapes that in combination allow us to enjoy the Camino to the fullest and leave aside the obligations of everyday life. The stress that many people are subjected to can be highly detrimental and that is why having a moment of disconnection helps us to feel good about ourselves.

Learning to have time to disconnect is very important, and it is something that many learn on the Camino de Santiago and then apply in their daily routine.

It connects you with nature like never before

Nature is one of the most important elements of the Camino de Santiago. While it is in Galicia where green areas and lush forests are most abundant, all along the Camino we can find unique landscapes that will allow us to enjoy nature like never before. Getting away from the hustle and bustle and enjoying the tranquility of the countryside is very important to take a break and be able to continue with the day to day. 

It teaches you to enjoy other cultures and other nationalities

If there is one thing that stands out about the Camino de Santiago, it is the interculturality. By walking any of its routes you can meet people of different nationalities, religions and cultures, being able to learn a lot from each of them. To this we must add the history of the Camino de Santiago and its ability to attract so many people from around the world, being a central point to enjoy the most of the interculturality.
