Flight Anxiety Meditation

Download the free meditation for flight stress and panic attacks


Have you ever had a panic attack on a flight?

I have. It sucks big time.

On my latest cross country flight, I experienced difficulty breathing, panic sensations and all around high ANXIETY. #SuperFunGoodTimes

I don’t normally experience anxiety from flying itself (although I definitely get anxious when we hit severe turbulence), but I had a triggering experience right before I got on the plane where I was then stuck for the next four hours alone, grappling with my stress. Tapping into my mindfulness training, I was able to breathe my way through it and eventually calm my nervous system down to a manageable level.

I’ve taught meditation in yoga classes and at professional retreats in the past. I’m not a master by any means, but as someone with anxiety and some mindfulness training, I thought I’d create a downloadable meditation to keep handy on your phone in case of emergency.

That being said, this is my first attempt at creating a downloadable file for this purpose, so email me with any issues or feedback.
