Ever dreamed of a big trip but feel scared to go alone? On “Life Quakes,” hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest therapist Joann ‘JoJo’ Venant help a viewer who’s terrified to take her dream solo trip to Japan. How can she overcome her fear and make it happen?

Break down big goals

Overcoming a huge challenge like solo travel starts with breaking it into smaller, more manageable steps. Think about researching destinations, safety tips, transportation, and activities.

Knowledge is power

Knowing about your destination reduces worry. Find out what areas are safe, how to get around, and things to do and see.

Sometimes it’s okay to take a step back

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, don’t be afraid to give yourself permission to pause, regroup, and replan. It’s better than getting burnt out or abandoning your trip entirely.
