Ways to Overcome Travel Anxiety

Summer travel season is finally here! People are definitely lounging in the airport halls waiting for their flights, or in the beach working on their tan, or hitting the road to catch the best view of the sunset on the cliff.

Indeed, travelling is a good and fun way to enjoy with family and friends. But travel is not for everyone. Some people are having anxieties during travel or at the thought of travelling– either by plane, boat, train or even long road trips.

 Travel anxiety is not really an easy condition. People often have had to experience the worst breakdowns- and it’s sad because then how would they be able to travel and see more of the world?

Today, let’s talk about how you can overcome travel anxiety and experience travel normally.

Identify Your Stress

It is better that you know what is causing you anxiety, what is stressing you out- the long counter lines? the long hour flights? or even the simplest carrying a luggage bag?

It is better that you know what’s causing you stress and start provoking travel scenarios to make sure you know how to cope when such stress rises.

Do Yoga Before Your Travel Day

Not just yoga but any source of relaxation activities for you. It is best that you already prepare yourself, your mind and body to travel. Of course, it is typically normal to have travel anxiety and you are definitely not alone in this battle- people are experiencing it too, it is just that yours was too overboard.

What you need to do is to help yourself out and remind yourself that your anxiety isn’t winning over you.

Quick Tips to Packing Light

Packing is just like with grammar. You got to know the rules and pattern before starting to pack.

For people who travel a lot they often take a lot of time to explore and see places most of the time. And bringing a luggage or a heavy bag can´t put up with all those walking and driving from one place to see to another.

Which is why most people prefer to travel light, pack light and bring just the necessary things. But just like they say, packing light is a really daunting task. You thought you can do it, but it is really not an easy task. Most of the time you will end up packing a month worth clothes for a week of stay. Hilarious but this is a reality for some.

That´s why today I am going to walk you through a few tips on how you can travel and pack light.

Choose the Right Bag

It starts with choosing with the right bag. It´s definitely not a luggage or a trolly. Best to choose duffle bags, gym bags and backpacks. Now, most people tend to fill all the space avaiable, yet the ideal way of packing is to make it to a point to pack less and give yourself less space.

Make a Plan

Make a daily plan of clothes you are going to wear during your days of travelling. Plan the type of clothing you are going to wear and how much extra you are about to wear during the day. It is important that you keep track of it to ensure you will be using every piece you are packing.
