Dealing with fear of flying

If you too are afraid of flying, here are three things you can do to decrease the chances of getting a panic attack whilst flying:

  • Distract yourself: Bring a book, magazine, or music to listen to during the flight. Engaging in an activity that you enjoy can help take your mind off of any anxieties.
  • Practice deep breathing: Taking slow, deep breaths can help to reduce feelings of anxiety and panic. Try using a breathing technique such as the 4-7-8 method This method involves inhaling for 4 seconds, holding the breath for 7 seconds, and exhaling for 8 seconds. https://www.webmd.com/balance/what-to-know-4-7-8-breathing .
  • Talk to someone: If you’re feeling anxious, don’t be afraid to speak to a flight attendant or a fellow passenger. Talking through your concerns can help to put them in perspective and make them feel more manageable. Additionally, if you are able to, consider seeking professional help before your flight. A therapist who specializes in anxiety can help you develop coping strategies and techniques to better manage your fear of flying.
