Sometimes we can have all the gadgets, tips, and tricks in the world, but we end up feeling queasy or anxious on a trip. Instead of judging ourselves or beating ourselves up for those feelings when we let go of the need for things to be perfect, we give ourselves a blessing. While travel is an enormous privilege and a great way to learn about ourselves and the world around us, things may not go your way. Release the need to judge ourselves or have the perfect Instagram story every day liberating! It is perfectly normal to feel anxious before and during the flight. After all, there are a lot of things that can go wrong while traveling. For some people, the thought of traveling can be very stressful. There are many things I ensure I bring with me on trips to help reduce anxiety by stimulating or relaxing one or all of my five senses: Saje Pocket Pharmacy. Creating a relaxing scent environment before I go to bed is part of my routine and this is a compact way to use aromatherapy on the go. Darkening eye mask to ensure I always sleep on a flight with bright lights or in a hotel without blackout curtains. A pair of earplugs. If I’m traveling on a noisy night train or are stuck on a long layover and need a nap, these are always handy. I recently got a lifetime subscription to the “Calm” app. It’s great because I can download guided meditations to do while offline and on a flight or I can make daily emotional check-ins to look back and see what I’m really feeling. This may seem really random, but I always bring warm fuzzy socks to help with anxiety during flights. If my feet were cold, I would never sleep, and if I could not sleep, I would worry. The most important thing to remember is that you can deal with any issues by using relaxation techniques, planning ahead, working with your healthcare professional, and letting go of the need for your trip to be perfect!
