Purpose of your trip

 

In Addition, travel isn’t about about sitting in a plane for three hours—it’s usually about exploring a new culture or seeing a loved one. So keep a picture of the destination or person on your smart phone. Notice the details, including the faces, shapes, lights, colors and other vivid features. Notice how these details awaken your intentions for the trip and remind you what the trip is about.

Accept your anxiety

At last, the more you don’t want to feel worried, the more that feeling will come back. So instead, be open to it. Notice the sensation in your stomach and other parts of your body. Let it come and go. Don’t judge it. Finally just observe it.
