Are you like one of five other people who are frightened when you sit on a plane that glides on the runway to death that is almost certain? Is your heart beating fast and your lungs panting until it finally takes off?
Having a flying nervousness is not good but it is usually very easy to overcome the fear of flying! I know I was afraid to fly and I can beat him and you can too. You just have to know where to start.
Why do you have to overcome the fear of flying? Not treating it might make your life very disappointing. You cannot or will not fly abroad or to another country for a vacation. You may have seen long-distance relatives and friends unless they came to you and your career opportunity might suffer if you did not travel or travel as often as you should.

Did you know that most of the time your fear is based on irrational thinking rather than factual information? Often when you are on a plane, your mind interprets it as a dangerous situation and sends all the wrong signals to your body.
These signals encourage flight responses which in turn increase your hearing rate, your breathing rate and cause a number of other symptoms such as tingling in the lips, arms, and legs. Your chest may feel very tight and you may have difficulty swallowing, almost like you are choking.
At that time it might even feel like you have a heart attack because your mind is a false signal. Of course, if you really believe you have an actual medical problem, you should seek medical help. But often only your body reacts to the danger that is felt by the mind. After you learn to rearrange your mind to find out that it is actually in a safe environment, you will usually see your fear of flying disappearing.
