(Women's Health) You're 35,000 fee up in the air, and should something go wrong, there's no way out. "that's what even the bluest of skies can feel like for those with a fear of flying, one of the 10 most common phobias. "But flight is the safest way to travel," says pilot Katie Pribyl, "and aviation safety records are as good as they've ever been." Great in theory? Three practical ways to keep jitters in check:


Lessen external stressors by arriving at the airport with ample time to get through security and to pick up your favorite healthy snack to bring on the plane for comfort.

Takeoff and landing

Listening to an audio book or music while taking off and touching down helps block out potentially irksome sounds and redirect your thoughts.

During turbulence

Fear is more likely to gain a foothold when you're alone. Strike up a conversation with the person sitting next to you, whether you know them or not.
