Give Yourself Permission To Go Slow
This another tricky one because the energy of the airport is usually “hurry up”. If you’ve allowed enough time to navigate through the airport before your flight leaves, you should be able to give yourself extra permission to slow down.
Does this mean you have to walk slowly up to the ticket counter? Not necessarily! When you’re interacting in lines with others of course you have permission to move at a normal pace- but you don’t have to RUSH yourself into discomfort. You have just as much of a right as anyone else to gather your bags, put on your shoes, or anything else you may need to do.
Places I do think it’s nice to go slow: on the walkways, at the trains or terminal changes, on the escalators. Don’t feel like you have to beat everyone to the escalator or elevator. Look around for paths less travelled. Allow yourself to go slow.
The act of going slower will help you not put extra stress on your nervous system, and will help you stay grounded even amidst all the swirling activity that may be happening around you.
