Writing your name can help with fear of turbulence

A pilot gave some advice on how to stop getting nervous about turbulence and it's simple as writing your name over and over again with your non-writing hand.

Captain Ron Nielsen appeared on 'The Today Show' and told a volunteer with a severe fear of flying to take a pen and try writing you name with the opposite writing hand.

According to Captain Nielsen, doing this acts as a distraction and it crosses over motor function in the brain which is a disruption for your thought process.

The producer of the show Joyanna Billington put the method to the test and admitted she felt much better doing it.
