Scared of flying

FLIGHTS HAVE BECAME AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE LIFE OF PRACTICALLY EVERY PERSON. BUT NOT FOR ALL THE AIRPLANE IS ASSOCIATED WITH JOY AND POSITIVE EMOTIONS. FOR SOMEONE, EVERY FLIGHT IS A WHOLE TEST AND AN INSURABLE SENSE OF FEAR. PSYCHOLOGIST AND HEAD OF THE NETWORK OF PSYCHOLOGICAL CARE CENTERS A. ADLERA MARINA Dokuchaeva, RECOMMENDS A COMPLEX OF MEASURES THAT HELP TO LEARN ENJOY FLIGHT PLEASURE.

1: CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS

For example, when an airplane takes off, it makes quite a loud cue sound. It seems to a person that something is happening to the plane dangerous, thoughts come to his mind that now everything is fight and it’s time to say goodbye to everyone. In this case, I suggest consciously change thoughts. It is thanks to their conscious change can change inner feelings. For example: “Ca- the chapel accelerates so loudly, as it is necessary in order to so that it takes off. ” This is where you rationalize – it turns on psychological protection.

2: FOLLOW YOUR BREATH

When we are stressed, we unconsciously begin to breathe superficially, that is, non-physiological. Such breathing is different called diaphragmatic. Your task is during the alarm live with both hands on the stomach, try to close your eyes and focus focus on how you breathe. You need to take a breath, hold hold your breath and count to yourself: one, two (two seconds). Later exhale thoroughly and hold your breath on the count: one, two, three, four. Then inhale the air again. To do this, you need to pay attention craving for the shoulders not to move up and down. In this process physiological breathing should move the muscles of the front belly – exactly where you originally put your brushes hands. When inhaling, the stomach should swell as much as possible like a ball. On exhalation, on the contrary, draw in to the spine. So you can continue until you feel: heart rate is normal malized, and the panic is receding. It turns out through your physiological breathing you regulate your emotional background.

3: SWITCH YOUR ATTENTION

When a plane enters a turbulence zone (or any other exciting moment for you), your task is not to concentrate on the process taking place on the plane, and try with an effort of will switch your attention. For example, an airplane lands on- fixes to lower the height – you must switch to view interesting film or remember all the tasks that you have mali perform on this journey, or any other options, which can distract your attention. If you learn to tough moments to switch your attention, you will learn to sharply lower the level of your anxiety.

4: READ ALL RISKS CAREFULLY BEFORE FLYING

Often people who have never flown before are afraid of years. This is due to what they see and hear in the media. After all, any By the way, the plane crash is covered very thoroughly. If we turn attention to road accidents, we will understand that they happen hundreds of times more often. I propose to carefully study not only the statistics of the airplane – stanzas, but also try to study the mechanisms of insurance of the work of self flying in flight. Often we are afraid of the unknown, so we need to dimo study in detail what scares you, so that in a difficult moment explain to yourself all the processes taking place on board.

5: FORM A NEW CONDITIONED REFLEX

As you know, the formation of a new conditioned reflex is 21 days, plus 8 days for consolidation. I suggest a month before summer download a set of relaxing melodies (preferably without words), and each time before going to bed, listen to them in the same order. When it is necessary to breathe and relax physiologically. In your mental apparatus in a month, a new conditional reflex, that is, by turning on this music, your psyche will understand that this music is equal to relaxation. Therefore, when you go to plane, your task is to turn on this particular set of melodies. As soon as the music starts playing in the headphones, immediately the conditioned reflex works, and you begin to relax.

BUT!

There is a concept of “fear of flight”. It means you are flying, but at the same time you feel fear. In this case, simple tips can help. But there is the concept of “aerophobia” – a mental disorder, with which fear of flying prevents you from flying at all, so the most changing your quality of life for the worse. It is in this case I recommend that you seek help from specialists – doctors-psy- hot therapists who can figure out the true reasons your phobia and prescribe appropriate treatment.
