Flight journeys can be really frightening if you are not a fan of heights. You also have a thousand doubts in your minds that might include fear of airplane crashes or maybe even fear of puking. So if you are one of them, then this article is surely for you because flying from one place to another is not really a bad thing and if you have some tips in your mind to follow, then I am sure you can make it through. So here are some of the tips that you should totally be following.
- Set up your expectations after a proper research:
Know what to expect from your flight journey by researching. You need to research a lot before boarding your flights if you are afraid of air travels. For instance, try knowing about how the engine is efficient enough to handle tricky situations. Try knowing the fact that the plane still flies and functions even if there is a failure in the engine. Know that turbulence is not at all something to worry about as it is totally based on the weather conditions and that your pilots can handle it while your hostesses can handle you. Such kind of cool facts have to be known about flights so that you stop being afraid of them. Learn what to expect from your flight journeys and continue researching from time to time to learn more about them and stay updated.
- Choose your seats based on your comfort zone:
Now this option can be only possible if you can book your tickets earlier than later. You can even get the chance of booking some cheap flight tickets if you have them booked like 50-60 days before. This way, choose the kind of seat you want. If you think that looking at the clouds can save you from fear and distract you with the beauty of the sky, then go for it. If you are claustrophobic then maybe you should look for a free spaced place or a seat like in the last where most of the seats are isolated. If you think you can handle people and would want to know more about the people around you then you should totally go for it because that also might keep your diverted. Choose your seats wisely. But if you are someone who has booked some last minute flights, then maybe you canno0t have the chance of grabbing this freedom.
- Think wise before selecting your media and entertainment modes:
So now that you are in the flight, you have turned on the monitors and are scrolling through the channels. Somehow you prefer knowing what is happening around you in the news and that is when you hear about some plane crashing in some part of the world. And there goes your mood to the lowest and darkest possible zone. You don’t have to think that your plane is going to face the same consequences and for that, you need to stay away from such news and all for a while. Think of some entertaining movies or music rather than trying to know what is happening around you. Now that you are in the sky, forget about the world for a while and enjoy this air travel.
- Sleep can be a major help:
Many people prefer not to sleep in the flights because that may lead to jet lag. But then if you are so cared of flying but still choose to book flight tickets, then maybe you should try sleeping as that helps you a lot in relaxing while you are on board. You can either watch something or cover our eyes with a sleep mask or maybe read a boring book to fall into a peaceful slumber for a while.
- Breathe in and breathe out:
Yoga and all the asanas are very famous for a reason. Out of them all, the ‘breathing in and breathing out’ is very much effective. It relaxes you to a greater extent and also brings some inner peace. You also get to feel good and a lot more refreshing that you were before doing this. So breathing in and breathing out can be an effective factor.
