How to keep calm and travel on

Travel can be incredibly exciting and it can also be dauntingly overwhelming. This is especially true when your destination is unfamiliar (aka “out of your comfort zone”). Your subconscious mind's prime directive is to keep you safe and alive. In other words, it equates the “known” with the “safe.” So it makes sense that venturing into the unknown (or even thinking about it) can throw you into a state of heightened awareness. But the gift here is that you can use this heightened state to your advantage. Instead of being overwhelmed or limiting your travel, you can find ways to enhance your adventure.

Here are four ways to help you stay calm while traveling:


1. Hypnosis

A “hypnotic state” is basically a state of relaxation and enhanced focus.

I love listening to a hypnosis download while flying to my desired destination—whether it’s for powering up my voice for a work trip, preparing for a super chill vacation, or practicing patience while with family. Before your trip, download a guided hypnosis recording that aligns with your desired vision. You can listen to it throughout the trip at any time—in the morning, before a nap or bed, or lying on the beach—to reinforce your desired ways of being.

2. Daily Intentions

Energy goes where your focus is and this is why clear intentions directly focus your energy towards what you want to be, do, or have. (Without them, you’re likely cruising along on auto-pilot.) Setting an intention for your day amplifies mental clarity and focus, both of which will positively shape your mindset perspectives. Think of intention setting as turning on your filter for whatever it is you’re seeking. For example: You’re in Italy and determined to find your ideal tan Italian leather backpack. What exactly do you have in mind? Focus on exactly that, down to the smallest detail to filter and draw it closer to you. You’ll know it when you see it and it will seem to find you.

3. Elevate Your Emotions

When you feel good, you naturally want to stay there. Luckily, you get to decide how you want to feel! Positive emotions fuel a reward feedback loop and this encourages you to seek out more and more good feelings.

I recommend practicing deciding how you want to feel every morning. Then, throughout the day whenever you need to realign with your desired state, you can return to this practice. If you need a little help getting started, download my Subconscious Activation for the audio and journal process. 

4. Meditate

Meditation can radically improve your awareness when done consistently. It also helps synchronize the left and right hemispheres of the brain. This helps regulate the nervous and emotion systems and directly improves attention span, thinking, and creativity. Daily meditation is like lifting weights for your brain, with repetition and over time, it helps you witness when you're doing stuff that's not helpful. It gives you the ability to affect change and improve your life. Basically, we all want to be present and make good choices, right? Meditation helps you respond to thoughts, emotions, and experiences in a more conscious way, rather than impulsively reacting from your subconscious programs.

In summary

Regardless of the kind of traveling you’re doing—for work or pleasure, a family vacation, or a solo trek—using these techniques can help you stay grounded, present, and connected. These practices can help enhance your overall travel experience, making it more enjoyable and fulfilling. Take the time to appreciate your surroundings, try new things, and fully immerse yourself in the present moment. That’s what we’re here for, isn’t it? By doing so, you'll create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime. Bon voyage!
