You don't have to be worried about plane turbulance again when you trip by the airplane because this method.



Being rattled around a pressurised can flying at 30 ,000 feet - a totally bizarre environment , when you think about it - can be extremely terrifying , and there's often not much you can do to calm your fears.
It's not as if the cabin crew are still serving the stiff drink you so badly need - and even if they were , you'd probably regurgitate it with all the jerky movements.

Turbulence is rarely a real cause for concern , but it can still be helpful to have a calming technique up your sleeve.

Fortunately there is one - and it's very simple.

It also doesn't involve popping a tranquiliser or repeating affirmations over and over to yourself.

A method tested on The Today Show on NBC News examined how to distract the brain from any perceived danger in a turbulence simulator at a facility built for nervous fliers.

Captain Ron Nielsen who helped with the experiment had an interesting piece of advice.
The pilot of 40 years instructed a volunteer with a severe fear of flying to take a pen in the opposite hand to which she writes with and write her name over and over again.

The method works in two different ways.

Firstly , it acts as a distraction from the turbulence.

Secondly , the action crosses over motor function in the brain , which acts as a disruption to your thought process.

It was a case of the proof being in the pudding when The Today Show producer Jovanna Billington said it was unbelievable just how much better she felt when using this method.
