Everyone is afraid of something or other. It might be snakes, flying, or it might be heights.
“The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear”. Nelson Mandela.
Fear can hold you back from living your life to the full. It’s so easy to ignore and hope they’ll go away. Up to 5% of the population are afraid of heights, with women twice as likely to have this phobia.
Here’s a few tips from Go Ape for those with the fear:
- Face it. If you know what makes you anxious then take small steps to treat it.
- Relax. Learn to breathe deeply deep into your abdomen to lessen feelings of anxiety.
- Embrace it! Go Ape adventures are the ultimate goal for those conquering their fear of heights – so why not gather a supportive bunch and head to the forest to conquer your fear at one of our 28 Tree Top Adventures:
