Number 2: Fear of Flying


The fear of flying phobia, also known as Aerophobia is one of the most common phobias and affects many of us on a daily basis.

Most people don’t like being confined in a metal tube miles above the earth while others are more afraid of the plane crashing.

Whatever the reason for this fear, there’s one thing for sure and that is, its very disruptive for the traveler. There are many people who wont set foot on a plane, they’ll take the boat instead.

Imagine traveling to America from Europe in a boat, can you believe some people do this so that they wont have to get on a plane. It may sound ridiculous to some but to the person who has this phobia, its quite natural.

Flying without fear is a goal which most people who suffer from this phobia think they'll never succeed to do.

Fear of Flying Tips
There are many fear of flying courses available today & they all start out by telling you about plane safety. Airplane safety has improved 100 fold since the mid eighties when DC10’s used to drop out of the skies on a weekly basis.

We rarely see an airplane crash these days and when it does happen, its usually from some non western country. So, what we can learn from this is that air travel is the safest form of transport in the world, if you travel on a western airline in the 21st century, you’ll be completely safe.

However, some people still have an irrational fear of flying and so need to do something about it if they really want to overcome the fear of flying for good.

The best way to overcome this phobia is by listening to fear of flying hypnosis or fear of flying hypnotherapy recordings a couple of weeks before your flight.

You’ll be far more relaxed and should be relatively calm when you board the plane.
