Podcast: Can Travel Treat Anxiety?

by Nathan James Thomas

Travel is often thought of as something that can provoke anxiety, and with good reason. Between delayed flights, strange streets, new languages, and endless challenges, travel can feel like a nightmare for those who struggle with anxiety. But according to Intrepid Times co-editor Jennifer Roberts, travel can actually, if approached correctly, help us treat our anxiety and train it so that we can live and travel in a way that feels meaningful.

In this conversation, Jen and I discuss the travel experience that tested Jen’s developing anxiety management skills, the kind of preparation people with anxiety may need before travel, how to think of the challenges of travel as opportunities to practice anxiety management, why travel writing can enhance those skills and kickstart personal growth, and much more.
