Air travel can be stress-inducing for nervous flyers. Are you or your traveling companion anxious about flying? Try some of these products to ease your nerves before your next flight.
Ahead of your trip, download the SOAR app. The fear-of-flying app offers helpful information about your flight and planes in general, plus tips for managing anxiety. The app is free to download on iTunes.
Purchase some aromatherapy oils to dab on your pulse points during the flight. Lavender is particularly helpful for calming stress and anxiety. Be mindful of your seatmates and don’t overdo it with oil application.
Download some television shows or movies to your device before your trip. Be sure to pick something light you enjoy. Put on your noise-canceling headphones and immerse yourself in the entertainment. If you prefer doing something more practical, bring a book of crossword puzzles, Sudoku or an adult coloring book to distract you.
If you are able to sleep during a flight, purchase a sleep mask for extra relaxation. Try a weighted option to alleviate eye strain and achieve better rest.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
