Two weeks ago, we reported on how the hotel industry is using guided imagery and guided meditation to encourage more restful visits. Now the airline industry is following suit. This week Refinery29.com posted an article about British Airways’ new “Mindfulness for Travel” program. In an effort to restore some pleasantness to air-travel, it offers guided imagery for flying, as well as meditation and mindfulness videos to help soothe harried travelers.
Reporter Sarah Jacoby explains the key to mindfulness when traveling is accepting that the current situation is just a transitory moment in time. Passengers should take a few minutes to center themselves before, during, and after the flight. Taking time to connect with yourself and your surroundings, even while hustling through an airport, can help you stay calm in frustrating situations. The British Airways program is designed to help passengers relax in the moment instead of worrying over the many annoyances of air travel. Guided imagery for flying can help people find their peaceful place and enjoy the trip.
