If you've ever felt your legs shake at the thought of boarding a plane, you 're not alone!

Fear of flying is more common than you think, but don't worry, we are here to help you conquer those nerves and enjoy your flight.

Here are five tips that will help you let go of your fear of flying and help you elevate your experience to unsuspected heights.

So relax, enjoy the ride and make every moment in the air a pleasurable experience. Happy flying!


1. Breathe, relax, laugh, and use the 4-7-8 technique.

Laughter is the best remedy, even at 10,000 meters above sea level!

Before takeoff, try deep breathing techniques to calm those nerves. Not feeling relaxed enough? Use the 4-7-8 breathing technique, popularized by Harvard doctor Andrew Weil. It's a simple but effective tool for inducing a state of deep relaxation and facilitating sleep.

By following the four steps of this technique (inhale for 4 seconds, hold the breath for 7 seconds and exhale for 8 seconds) the parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated, producing a feeling of calm and tranquility.

2. Create your own soundtrack

Music is a powerful tool to change your mood. Before boarding, put together a playlist of your favorite songs. From soothing ballads to pop hits that make you want to dance in the aisle, music can distract you and lift your spirits!

3. Use creative visualization

Close your eyes and visualize the take-off as the beginning of a great adventure. Imagine the final destination and the exciting experiences that await you on the other side. Visualizing success can help you shift your focus from fear to excitement, and help you take off with confidence!

4. Practice hedonism

Take advantage of your time in the air to disconnect from the outside world and immerse yourself in your favorite activities. How about starting with your favorite magazine? Or do you prefer a good movie? Be sure to load your tablet with your favorite movies before the flight and immerse yourself in a world of adventure, comedy or drama. With comfortable headphones, you can enjoy your personal selection without distractions.

Be indulgent with yourself and treat yourself during the flight to your favorite treats, from gourmet cookies to exquisite chocolates, choosing your favorite treats can make the time fly by.

5. Buy the book "Sobrevolando el miedo: cómo superar la aerofobia" by Silvia Olmedo.

This book offers a psychological perspective on the fear of flying and provides practical techniques to overcome it. Silvia Olmedo, a renowned psychologist and therapist, approaches the subject from a sympathetic and empathetic perspective, providing useful tips and exercises to manage flight-related anxiety. With real stories and examples of successful cases, this book will guide you step by step in your journey to overcome fear and enjoy the experience of flying.

With these simple activities, the time on the plane will pass quickly and, who knows, you might end up enjoying the flight so much that you even get a taste for flying!
