How Nigerians Can Deal With the Turbulence in Domestic Flights

How to deal with turbulence during flights

Turbulence on flight can give the worst experience, especially if you are the type who already has a phobia for flying. It is difficult not to get distressed and frightened by the sudden side to side or up and down movements… even worse, erratic shaking of the aircraft. Turbulence is a frequent occurrence on domestic flights in Nigeria. While it is a huge concern for anyone who is nervous about flying, there are ways it can be managed to ensure it does not become a nerve-wrecking experience. In this post are top 5 ways to handle turbulence on local flights.

Breathe deeply as often as you can

Deep breaths can be very helpful while enduring an episode of turbulence. Rather than fret and worry, close your eyes, inhale and exhale deeply as frequently as you can. Also, you can carry a paper bag which you can use as an anti-hyperventilating device as well. It is very good in reducing anxiety.

Remain buckled to your seat

The most important thing to do when there is turbulence is to stay buckled to your seat. Refrain from walking around or moving from one corner to the other. No matter how afraid you are, sit still and ensure you only raise your hand if you need to signal an air hostess for anything. Sitting still rather than walking around helps you stay calm and reduce chances of injury or accidents in the case of severe turbulence.

Try the rubber band technique

This is not a common technique and might not work for everyone. The rubber band technique is such that you wear a rubberband around your wrist and snap the rubber band against your skin anytime you feel yourself becoming agitated such that the pain is a reality bite that takes your mind off any particular situation that makes your anxious or gives you a fright. Adopting this method helps with turbulence. It distracts you from it and cuts out chances of you being traumatized by the movements.

Listen to slow, calming music

The fear for turbulence has a way of kicking up fear inside of you, making it hard for you to be calm or focused on any flight. You find your mind consumed on the possibility of turbulence, how it could lead to crash and how it would mean the end of your life or worse, a maimed body. Your mind wanders and perfectly normal flight noises seem like sounds that do not exist. Listening to peaceful and calming music help you manage yourself on the flight and even when an actual turbulence is going on. It occupies your mind and takes off a lot of stress that comes with turbulence.

Avoid caffeine products

Caffeine products, especially coffee may seem like the perfect drink for a long flight, but it can cause an overly hyper state of mind and this will only exacerbate your anxiety when you have to deal with turbulence. Avoid taking any caffeine product before or while you are on the flight; instead, go for other liquids that will keep you hydrated. A glass of one can be very good for calming the nerves.

Dream Interpretation – Dreams of Being Naked

One of the most common dreams around the world is the one in which the dreamer is naked. Dreams of being naked can have several interpretations, and the nakedness in the dream can manifest itself in a number of different ways.

In some naked dreams, the dreamer is simply going about his or her own business, commuting to work driving in the car, walking around the neighborhood, etc. In many cases, the dreamer is completely unaware of his or her nakedness and not at all bothered by it.

In other cases, the dreamer is aware of his or her nakedness but no one else seems to notice at all. While the dreamer may be conscious of the nakedness, everyone else just goes on about their business and make no comments. These types of dreams are often manifestations of the dreamer’s fears. Often the dreamer has fears that he or she worries may be uncovered. Dreams in which no one but the dreamer notices the nakedness are often indications that the fears bothering the dreamer are unfounded, and …

How To Choose A Fishing Rod And How To Make It Last

No sportsman wins by sheer talent alone. No matter how talented a sportsman is, if his equipment is not good enough, his chances of winning will remain slim. That is because his equipment will hinder rather than help his game. A runner needs good shoes to run. A bowler needs a bowling ball that weighs and fits right in his hand. The same goes with a fisherman and his fishing rod.

Fishing is a sport that many people find enjoyable. It is always a challenge to get the elusive fish to bite the bait, and sitting still for hours on the end just to be able to catch fish can be very relaxing. But regardless of the challenge and the relaxation that fishing offers, the goal of fishing is still to catch some fish. Barring bad luck and circumstances that are really unfavorable for fishing, a good fishing rod is necessary for a good catch.

If you are a beginner at fishing, it is perfectly all right to use a simple fishing rod and reel – nothing spiffy and nothing fancy. When you are jus…
