HOW NOT TO LET ANXIETY STOP YOU FROM TRAVELING

  • When I was younger, I was very socially awkward. I got anxiety trying to talk to strangers. Travel forced me to get over that and become what is termed a “learned extrovert.” It’s sink or swim on the road and, since I wanted to travel and be on the road so much, I decided to swim.

    For many, it’s an even harder challenge. My friend Lauren of Never Ending Footsteps suffered such bad panic attacks when she was younger that she barely left the house, developed an eating disorder, and never took public transportation. Today, Lauren writes in-depth about her panic attacks, how travel helped her cope, and gives advice to others facing the same issues.

    I was 16 when I had my first panic attack. I thought I was going to die. I was drenched in sweat within seconds, I had pins and needles everywhere, my chest was tight, and my left arm was tingling in a way that convinced me I was having a heart attack.

    These panic attacks would take hold of my life — I was having as many as ten a day. I developed an eating disorder and was unable to leave my house for months at a time.
