Vacations are the best. Really, they are. A week (or two or three) where you can sleep as long as you want, drink as much as you want, tan SAFELY, and create amazing memories. You just can't beat it. 

But if your holiday is outside of the country, then there's something you have to do first before the fun can begin... Get on a plane. For some this can be quite a daunting experience, but Life Hacker believes they've cracked the code to make yourself feel better about it all.

"Close your eyes and breathe in for four counts and out for eight counts. Focus on expanding your lungs and stomach to feel the full effects of deep breathing. If you have headphones or earbuds, it helps to listen to white noise or nature sounds to help block out the passengers around you or the ambient noise of the plane to make it easier to focus on your breathing."

Sounds simple enough. If that doesn't work, then when you see a nice lady/man pushing a trolley down the aisle, politely ask them to make it a double.
