0

Travel anxiety may strip off the joy travelling is supposed to stir. Even the most gregarious ones can get bothered by the unfamiliarity of places. On the other hand, it can exacerbate and even impede the dreams of people who are already living in the cockleshell of anxiety disorder. 

Uncertainty, experience, consumption of negative news, fear of flights, overboard thinking like ‘What if I get lost?, what if I miss my flight? what if I met with an accident? are some of the common causes of travel anxiety. As we only have one life, we must shake out the shackles and live to endure Mother Earth’s infinite beauty. So, Here are a few ways to ease the travel anxiety

Proper Research And Travel Guide Book

The fear of the unknown is one of the many things that propel anxiousness. Proper research and planning about the place helps one ease by knowing what to expect. For example; If you’re someone who gets panicked and confused inside the airport, proper research on the “what”, “how”  and “where” of the airport procedures can help you ease. Reading travel guidebooks can also help one deal with anxiety by pre-planning and booking accommodation. 

Coping-Distraction 

Reading a book, watching a movie, listening to music, and playing video games are some of the effective ways to detract attention from anxious thoughts. Make sure to pack your coping distraction in your carry-on bag. If you’re travelling with a companion, start an engaging conversation to dive in. 

Diaphragmatic Breathing and Mantras

Diaphragmatic breathing or belly breathing has been proven as one of the best ways to calm one’s nerves. Inhaling deeply through your nose and exhaling slowly through your mouth while placing one hand on your chest and the other on your stomach. Also repeating mantras can blow away negativity with the warmth of a positive chill. Repeat silent mantras like, “I can do this’ ‘, “I am okay”, and “I am safe” to ease yourself. 

Eat healthy 

Unhealthy eating can sometimes be the reason for the way we feel and respond. Consumption of alcohol, over-sugary meals, unhealthy meals and even staying longer without eating can induce feelings like anxiety and stress. Eating healthy food and staying hydrated can help you reset your mind.
