How To Easily Get Over Your Fear Of Flying

February 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 132

Flying is an excellent way to travel that gives travelers an easy way to cross the continent in a short amount of time. Additionally, travelers can travel intercontinentally, allowing them access to the entire globe. However, in order to make efficient use of this mode of travel, individuals will need to overcome the fear of flying.

Everyone must overcome the fear of flying to some extent. Individuals that have not flown before may fear flying due to the unknown. Others may have had a bad experience on a plane and need to work in order to overcome their fear.

One of the tips for flying without all the fear is to find out what to expect. This will be especially helpful for the first flight. Visit with experienced travelers about trips on a plane. Sometimes, you may find it helpful to hear about both good and bad trips. It is helpful to remember the person telling the story lived through a difficult flight and survived to tell their story.

Take some time to review the safety of travel by plane. Every day, thousands of passengers board airplanes and fly to their destination with no incidents. However, in the same period thousands of auto passengers will die on the highway.

Take time to learn and practice relaxation techniques. Useful techniques include breathing deeply as well as clinching the fists and then relaxing. Tell yourself that flying is safe. Tense muscle groups and then relax. These steps can slow your heart rate to lower your blood pressure so you are prepared to face the challenge of flying.

Choose a seat located over the wings. Travelers claim that the wings form the pivot point of an airplane so these seats experience less turbulence than other seats in the cabin. Try to avoid the very back of the plane that often has the largest bounce. Once you find your seat, open the air vent so that the maximum amount of fresh air blows in your face to help you to relax.

If you still have problems with fear, talk to the doctor. Some travelers find a mild sedative to be an effective way to calm the nerves so the flight goes easier. If taking a sedative, avoid the use of alcohol, but without the sedative, a drink can calm your nerves, if limited to one to two servings of alcohol. Flying makes it difficult for the body to process alcohol normally.

You live in a very large world. Flying decreases the travel time and allows additional time to enjoy one's destination. Overcome the fear of flying to make your world much smaller.
