CLEO (Malaysia) - - TRAVEL SPECIAL -

They’ll prob­a­bly be the ones who are qui­etly sh*tting them­selves over the un­fa­mil­iar­ity of, well, ev­ery­thing.

Now, keep in mind that those who tend to stress over things are push­ing them­selves out of their com­fort zone when trav­el­ling to a new place, so try not to lose it with them. You’ve got to give them credit where credit is due – they did take the first step in go­ing on the trip in the first place. Jes­sica sug­gests help­ing them break their cau­tion­ary habits. “It’s a great idea to get them do­ing things that they nor­mally wouldn’t do be­cause that gives them more con­fi­dence to con­tinue on with their trav­els,” she says. En­cour­age them to see how great the ex­pe­ri­ence is and help build their con­fi­dence to try some­thing new — ba­si­cally, get their YOLO spirit on.

“If you’re in Paris and your friend eats the same thing ev­ery day, sit them with you and try some­thing new. It’s about en­cour­ag­ing to give them fear­less­ness. Even­tu­ally, they might start to think, ‘Wow, I can do that. I can do any­thing!’”
