It's hard to believe, but there are people who are afraid of traveling. This is especially true for those who have a fear of airplanes and air travel. However, anxiety can sometimes be useful. It helps you make sure you're ready to go, that you don't put things off until the last minute, and that you haven't forgotten anything. On the other hand, maybe you have godophobia, a fear of traveling that makes even the thought of traveling fill you with dread.

With this in mind, experts from Go2Africa have shared tips on how to deal with anxiety, Huffington Post reports.

Find out the cause of your anxiety

If you know the cause, you'll know how to work on solving the problem. Maybe it's a bad trip or flight. Or is it the fear of getting sick or lost? Think about what makes you anxious and work on it.

Make your life easier and avoid stress

Don't leave packing to the last minute - make a detailed list of things you need, where you can check off everything you've taken to make sure you haven't forgotten anything. Pack your essentials and a change of clothes in your carry-on luggage so that you are left with absolutely nothing if your suitcase gets lost.

Make sure you have active insurance in case you get sick, have something canceled, or lose something. Also, if things like caffeine or alcohol make you feel anxious, don't consume them for a few days before your trip.

Develop a "plan B"

Prepare a backup plan in case any problems arise. No matter how far in advance you make your reservations and how prepared you are, there are things that are out of your control. Have a plan in case of unforeseen situations. For example, find out when the next flight will be in case yours is canceled at the last minute. This can help reduce anxiety because if something goes wrong, you won't have to panic - you'll know what to do.

Be prepared when you arrive at your destination

This doesn't mean creating a detailed itinerary for each day, but make sure you know exactly how to get to your accommodation and explore the new area.

Find the phone number of local taxi companies in case your hotel shuttle doesn't show up, and learn how to use public transportation so you don't have to download and translate an app with confusing bus routes.

Use the services of specialists

If you're worried about booking everything well or choosing everything you need, leave it to the professionals. They will be able to prepare a trip according to your requirements and handle everything so that you can just enjoy your trip without stress.

Know how to relax

Before you travel, take some time to practice relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga. The more you do these practices, the easier it will be for you to overcome anxiety, even if it is very severe.
