The big question is, when are we going to start to get back to our daily routine? For some people, this routine means hitting the road and traveling. But given the circumstances, ‘Health and safety’ has perhaps become every industry’s primary buzz-phrase, because people seek to safeguard themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
This pandemic is one thing but now, after many months spent in trepidations, it seems we need to distinguish real threats from irrational fears. The nature of this fear has to be investigated, whether to take calculated risks or give in to these tight situations and stay put.
Mike Corey, BBC’s Host of ‘The Travel Show’ has started a new challenge with his fears and invites people to do so. He seeks out incredible, life-changing experiences that come from scary scenarios by visiting uncomfortable places around the world. He confesses that although these destinations are horrifying they could lead to a deeper sense of oneself.
Corey has made some remarks on how to determine which fears we take seriously and which we should just overcome. “Let’s draw some lines. Some things are scary, things that are dangerous, and things that are both. I’m interested in is the first one. Things that are scary, but really can’t hurt us. Fear is a bully and a thief. It steals your confidence and extorts your future. If you let it boss you around, it becomes stronger. And it will control your whole life. Like a bully, you have to stand up to fear, you have to hold your ground.”
Considering the outbreak of the Coronavirus, danger and fear have both been a grave issue that has threatened the comfort of one’s mind in the past several months. Mapping out the places that are of high risk and extremely low risk could be a perfect starting point for traveling while trying to keep your fear at bae by bearing in mind that the new normal includes safety protocols.
