Managing Travel Anxiety to Enjoy Your LDS Israel Vacations

A couple traveling as touristsThe fear of traveling is one of the most common anxieties that is often accompanied by some physical symptoms such as stomach problems, headaches, insomnia, and irritability. Some people don’t even realize why they feel so worked up before a trip; they wonder why they keep getting this nagging feeling a day or two. They also can’t explain why they keep postponing buying their LDS Israel travel tickets.

What causes travel anxiety?

Travel anxiety for some, results from the fear of flying, while for others, it stems from the fear being in unfamiliar situations. International travel can be scary these days, so the fear is understandable. Either way, fear shouldn’t rob you the joys of experiencing life. Here is are some ways to manage travel anxiety and enjoy your Cruise Lady LDS Israel vacations.

Anxiety results from the feelings of not being in control. So, to negate this, put down every detail of your travel. For example:

  • Find a map and photos of the airport arrival terminals and write down your route through the building.
  • If you lost your luggage, what would you do? Google this and write down the set of instructions.
  • To avoid dealing with unfamiliar transport on your first day, plan to take a taxi from the airport to your hotel or rental.
  • Write down everything you intend to do during your time there. There are a lot of fun places to visit in Israel so you need to have an outline of places you’d want to visit.

Plan everything out before you take the flight

Plan everything out before you leave the house. Who will be in charge of the house? Who will pick you mails? Don’t wait until the day of travel to start dealing with such details. On the day of the trip, you should be ready to pick your luggage and leave without the need to worry about who will take care of this or that.

Finally, it’s important to note that anxiety is a cumulative disorder. When you allow anxiety to take over one area of your life, it quickly spreads to other areas. If for instance, you have persistent generalized anxiety, dealing with it will help you fight other occasional anxieties such as travel anxiety
