We are advised to travel light when we undertake a journey.Why can't we travel light in our lives too to make it beautiful and enjoyable?

If we travel light the journey is enjoyable. In the journey of life i want to travel with no burden on my body or mind. Burden on body is due to sickness and obesity. Burden on mind is due to possesions and relationships.
"With no burden on body and mind
I want to travel and unwind"
