He literally has dealt with hundreds of rats piled up in space as big as a dorm room closet, and has no anxiety or disgust about it. Once he gets in a plane, his anxiety is through the roof. You’re not alone if anxiety during flying is something you regularly deal with.


While traveling by air, most planes that have an enormous capacity to carry passengers are always steady after take-off. You will have the opportunity of walking down the aisle freely without having any form of unsteady motion.

If the pilot brings on the light, it signifies that the pilot foresees turbulence. It can be so scary, but technically speaking it’s not as dangerous as you can think.

Preparation for a Flight

Your first experience flying can depend solely on your level of preparedness in anticipation. Major things you are sure to get when embarking on a long journey flying include swollen feet and dry skin. This may be caused by the low water retaining ability which is as a result of the low cabin pressure. This can be prevented by getting flight socks that ensure even distribution of pressure around the ankle, and you can stand up and walk when possible and ensure you put on loose and comfortable shoes. Talking about the slight dehydration process, you can prevent this by filling up a bottle from the water fountain to moisturize and reducing the possibility of dry skin. Pillows and blankets are always made readily available as well for some flight.

Given the fact that foods being served on a plane can be lacking in taste, you can as well arrange some things for yourself such as protein bar, sandwich, and snacks, make sure it complies with the guidelines laid down by the TSA. An exceptional case being a vegetarian requires you calling the airline for prior notice so that necessary arrangement will be made for you.
