5 ways to banish travel fears | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022


Chances are, you’ve had a dream to travel overseas at least once. Maybe about getting a tan on a tropical island or going skiing on some snowy slopes. It sounds really enticing, right? But what’s stopping you from booking that ticket, packing your bag and just traveling?


Can’t travel when you have kids? Don’t have the money to go? Isn’t it dangerous to adventure in a foreign land? Theser may seem like facts when you think about them in your head; but more often than not, it’s just your negativity getting the best of you. Here are a few reasons that can help you eliminate negative thoughts about traveling:


  1. I Have Kids

Parents, especially new ones, think they have a valid reason to avoid travel if they have little ones to take care of. More often than not, they’re right. Kids are a big responsibility and can often be a handful. But even with this fact, you deny yourself the joys of travel while you’re still young and active. Leave your precious bundles of joy with a trusted friend or relatives, or make it an experience for all of you by bringing them along.


  1. I Don’t Have the Money

There are ways you can really stretch your dollar on trips and travel. The only question that will be brought up is “how badly you want to save?” Some people go as far as planning their entire trip several months in advance, planning every last detail so they can see what costs they can cut down. If you really want to reach your dream of traveling, you’ll need to learn to do the same.


  1. I’m Too Old

Don’t let your age define what you can and can’t do. It’s been noted that people who often travel are around 47 years old. Even people in wheelchairs find the means to get themselves on a plane. As long as you get checked up thoroughly by your doctor and get an okay from him, you’ll be ready to fly in no time.


  1. Traveling Can be Dangerous

Yes, there are dangers out there in a world that is foreign to you; but think about it this way: no matter where you go, there will always be some type of danger in one form or another. Just the same as how you avoid danger in your homeland, you just need to be vigilant and ready for anything. Doing some research and packing up for any occasion can really help ease your mind and show you that only the unprepared get scared during travels.


  1. I Don’t Have the Time

Probably one of the most frequent reasons used is lack of time. No matter how busy a person you are, you’ll only have the time to travel if you give yourself some. Convince yourself to spend a few days off work or away from home, even if it’s just a long weekend, to get out there and see the world. You’re sure to learn and experience something that will change that busy mindset of yours.


Remember that the situation is only impossible if we make it so. Keeping a positive outlook about your travel plans can open so many doors that will, in turn, give you multiple travel opportunities for you to explore.
