3 Tips for the Anxious Flier
Good morning early birds! I’m off to Orlando bright and early for a day of fun–no work allowed! If you’ve been around the blog for awhile (and even if you haven’t) you may know that I’m an anxious person. This translates to anxiety when flying-which then translates to we’re flying to Orlando and I’m freaking out.
To all of my anxious fliers, this post is just as much for you as is it for me. Here are my top tips for staying cool, calm, and collected during your flight time.
ONE. STRESS AWAY + LAVENDER
If you haven’t heard of Stress Away–run, don’t walk and get you some! Literally a miracle in a bottle. Stress Away along with Lavender are my go to essential oils to calm me down. On any given day, I’m usually wearing Stress Away along with a few other go-to oils. Apply on the wrists and behind the neck to destress. Or simply inhale to de-stress in a hurry.
TWO. A CALMING PLAYLIST
Music is a powerful tool. Think about it–some of the most memorable things that happen in our life have music involved. Which is why it’s one of the things I turn to when I’m stressed or panicking. I have countless playlists on my phone labeled everything for “Chill Out” to “Calm Down.” Check out one of my playlists below:
THREE. READ A BOOK
Or two. Really, read anything. Taking my mind off of the present situation usually calms me down quick. If I don’t bring a book, I’ll read everything in the chair-pack–from the safety manual (I literally memorize that every flight) to the magazine from a few months ago. Once I tried the origami craft that I found in the Southwest Airlines magazine.
