In my LauriePOP Ideas video we are going to help you conquer your fear of flying today by giving you the BEST tips.If you are scared to fly, we can help you not be as anxious on your next airplane ride.
Many of my friends, including myself get worried when there is turbulence. Most people are worried a mechanical problem will arise while in the air. One of my friends has a fear of the plane crashing and her children being motherless.So while an airplane is in flight, a lot of passengers are freaking out on the inside.My friend Shannon is afraid of not being able to escape-like no way to leave.She has a fear of heights.I cannot see the bumps.I don’t know what turbulence means, I equate being careful with slowing down my car so that I don’t hydroplane.Airplanes just seem to keep going fast or even faster when there is turbulence.I think sometimes that the plane will snap in two or that the wings will just pop off.As irrational as flying fears sound, they are real phobias. Many passengers do not like being in control. According to Wikipedia, the fear of flying in an airplane is aviophobia.
Our fears propel us into a nosedive of irrational thoughts.When we lift off of our normal routine, especially when we don’t know the things we SHOULD BE controlling (like I don’t know what a pilot checks or what he missed), it can mean a bumpy ride for our emotions.
When we travel, we want to have fun and be relaxed, usually because we’re headed to a vacation spot. Ya know the saying that ‘Knowledge is Power?’Knowing what a pilot checks on an airplane may help calm some of your fears of flying. Today we will hear tips from a pilot here in Houston. These are some of the best tips to overcome your fear of flying based on his training and background knowledge. I hope these tips help you!
Airline travel outfits should be smart. These three things to wear on an airplane will help you mix and match during your vacation.
Why should you care about what to wear on the airplane to Europe?
Bring Sexy Back (haha)
Justin Timberlake would be appalled at what I’ve worn to the airport; that’s probably what led him to performing that son way back when. But after many flights across the pond and the waves of grain, I’ve figured out non-frumpy things to wear.
Sitting for hours is awesome in yoga pants, so a tight waist band should be in the suitcase not in Seat 22E.
Some transatlantic flights are freezing. Some European flights are hot, depending on where you are sitting. Be prepared with an extra layer that can be worn or shed.
Wearing pieces on an airplane that can be worn other times during the trip is just smart. Saves space in your carry on suitcase and saves you money because you packed efficiently in your carryon suitcase. Is that two words or just one??
I stumbled upon a gray tunic extender like this, but black was more versatile. My gray one was a Medium, and this extender is Small. It’s just a tad shorter. They come in like 20 colors!
By the way, I’m a size 10 and 5’8″. THE ONE REASON I love this and wear it is because it hangs correctly! It doesn’t cling. It hits mid to upper thigh, so proportionally you’re correct.
You can see that this tunic can look dressier as well as more casual.
I didn’t want the lace-bottomed ones, although I’ve seen some that are adorable. I just didn’t feel comfortable styling that type, and I liked the one-and-done of this extender.
I’ve even put a tee on top of my gray extender. Check out my YouTube Channel for more inspiration and Ideas That POP
I just love this in black because it can get dirty, doesn’t wrinkle easily, and can be paired with so many layering pieces for a transatlantic flight.
I add the most comfortable shoe to travel and sightsee in to make it more sporty. No longer am I that American wearing frumpy clothes with my white Asics abroad. I am super picky about shoe comfort when traveling. That is why I have bought my second pair. I even made a YouTube video about this comfortable shoe for travel. I cannot wear Skechers because they’re not supportive enough.
If you’re going to Ireland or a rainy location, I do not recommend these shoes. The airy, super light upper mesh will allow rain drops to pour in. But if you will have moderate temps or are running through an airport, I love them! AND THEY’RE UNDER $30!
No more swollen calves for me after a long haul flight! These compression leggings really do work! Plus they’re high waisted. I’m wearing a size Medium. I only wear these flip flops in the airport and at restaurants because they’re not super supportive. As soon as I get on the airplane, I put on socks and slip on shoes. You can see them in this video.
These capri gray ones are not compression so I wear them when sight seeing.
If you start with three things to wear on the airplane to Europe or on a transatlantic flight, you will be steps ahead in the packing process. Let me know where you wear your tunic, shoes, and leggings!
