How to Make Your First Time Flight Less Stressful

Traveling via airplane is one of the safest modes of transportation available today. However, that doesn’t make your first time flying any less stressful. The idea of flying miles above the Earth can be really intimidating, but don’t worry, there are ways to make your first flight less nerve-racking! Flying, no matter how many times you’ve done it before, is all about comfort and convenience. Start your preparations before you pack, make sure you have a few things to do while you wait, be as comfortable as possible, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. Simple as that! Here are a few tips to help you make your first time flying less stressful and super fun!





    Be Prepared


    Take the stress out of traveling by being prepared before you even leave the comfort of your home! Start with a packing list, move to a list of things to do while you’re on the plane or in the airport, and be ready for delays or time changes! Once you have these basics covered, flying will be a breeze!

    One of the most important ways to make sure your flight goes smoothly is to make sure you have something to keep your mind off the fact that you’re… flying.  Whether you grab a magazine, find an amazing action movie to watch, or snuggle up to take a nap, you’ll need something to keep you busy! There’s a lot of waiting for your flight, or waiting for your connection, or waiting while you’re on the plane!

    Here are just a few things you can have on the plane to keep you busy!

    • A good book
    • A movie
    • A portable gaming device
    • A magazine
    • Some work on your laptop
    • Listening to music, a podcast, an audio book
    • Sleeping!

    No matter the past time, make sure you have some headphones, and that the content is appropriate for all the passengers around you! Take the worry out of all the waiting by keeping yourself occupied!

    Organized Traveler


    Being organized is a great way to keep the stress off your back while you travel. Make sure that your carry-on, your suitcase, your personal item, and all your snacks are put in just the right places to make your trip as convenient as possible. Get a packing list, and research some packing tips so that you can start your flight off right by being ORGANIZED!

    Comfort Over Everything


    When you enter a stressful situation, it’s best to make sure you are mentally and physically comfortable. That way your mind can be a little clearer in order to handle whatever stressors may come your way. Comfort is different for everyone, so make sure it’s YOUR version of comfortable.

    You can travel in your PJ’s if it means that you will be just a little less worried about the flight! Comfort to you may also mean dressing in your best clothes and traveling first-class all the way! No matter what your definition, make sure that you are physically comfortable while you travel!


    Ask for Help!


    One of the best ways to make your first flight less stressful is to ask for help! It’s ok if you don’t know how to use the bathroom lock on the plane. It’s completely alright if you don’t know all the ins and outs of flying. Simply ask a flight attendant, an employee at the gate, or even a kind fellow passenger. You won’t get it all right on your first flight, so don’t be afraid to get a little help!

    No Worries!


    Once you’re on your plane, in the air, then safely on the ground, you’ll wonder to yourself what all the hubbub was about! You’ll be a professional traveler in no time, if you stay organized, keep yourself busy, make yourself comfortable, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. So sit back, relax, and enjoy your first flight!
