Don't Let Fear Prevent You From Traveling The World

by Editor (editor), , October 28, 2016

Here are three common fears and how you can face them head on.

Traveling the world is often ranked top of many people’s bucket lists. Yet only a small percentage actually make this dream a reality. This is because many are fearful of the experience and what it entails. Fears relating to travel can manifest themselves in different ways with varying levels of severity. Not facing up to them can result in you leading a life that is unsatisfied as you haven’t achieved your ambitions. So rather than letting this continue, here are three common fears and how you can face them head on.

Financial Instability

The fear of financial instability is one of the biggest faced by wannabe travelers. You might have convinced yourself that you are unable to afford it or concerned that you will run out of money. But these are unnecessary fears which you can easily overcome. Working while you travel can give you the financial support you need throughout your journey. This is something that many long-term travelers do to pay for accommodation, food, and excursions. From teaching English to writing jet ski repair manuals, there are countless ways to make money as you travel the world.

Planning a sufficient travel budget before you leave can also prevent you from overspending. Another option is to leave a backup fund with your parents or a friend, which they can then send to you if needs be.

Severe injury

The thought of getting injured anywhere can be extremely unnerving. But many people are particularly concerned about getting injured when in a foreign country. They worry about the language barrier, how far away the hospitals are and whether they will be given the right treatment. This can only add to their stress and put their travel aspirations on hold. But unless you are taking part in dangerous activities, your chances of getting hurt are relatively slim. So this is actually quite an irrational fear to have.

The best way to overcome this fear is by getting travel insurance that covers accidents and injury. This can quickly put your mind at rest. You can also use Google maps to find out where the nearest hospitals are in every destination you intend to visit.

Flying

If you want to see the world, it’s likely that you will need to fly on an airplane at some point during your journey. But a fear of flying that puts thousands of people off traveling each year. With continual technical and security advances, flying has never been safer that it is today. To overcome this fear, you have a number of option. You can talk to a counselor to pinpoint the cause of your anxiety or take prescribed medication to help you relax. But ultimately, the best way to start feeling more comfortable when in the air is by flying often. Let the airport staff know that you are a nervous flyer and they will do their best to make you more comfortable.

Planning a sufficient travel budget before you leave can also prevent you from overspending. Another option is to leave a backup fund with your parents or a friend, which they can then send to you if needs be.
