I used to dread air travel. The noise and crowds drained my energy and exhausted me, or so I thought at the time. But something strange happened after my first exploration of Logosynthesis—the process I explain in “Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words.”

I barely noticed the nine hour, two flight trip home from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Denver, Colorado!

I didn’t figure out why until three years later when I discovered a note “being squished on the subway” in an unfamiliar handwriting. Then I remembered having trouble imagining where my problem with air travel had come from in a practice exercise.

I had thought of a seemingly unrelated experience; riding the subway at rush hour when I was eight years old and being packed tightly between big people. We had experimented with “being squished…” in the process. I did not seem to have any response and completely forgot about it, but we had released long-frozen energy from that experience.

It was that recovered energy I needed to manage air travel comfortably, and 12 years later, I still do.

Think about what part of travel makes you feel anxious. Insert a brief description into the sentences in this book, and, hopefully, your anxiety will vanish too.
