Tips To Avoid Motion Sickness

Motion sickness, often referred as travel sickness is an ailment where you feel like vomiting while traveling. It can rob you of all the thrills and excitement of your vacation. Some people are prone to motion sickness, and if you are one of them, here are some tips to avoid motion sickness:

• Avoid taking heavy or spicy meals before traveling.

• Keep anti-motion sickness pills like meclizine with you in case of emergency.

• Avoiding strong food odors may also help prevent nausea.

• Try to choose a seat where you will experience the least motion. The middle of an airplane over the wing is the calmest area of an airplane. On a ship, those in lower level cabins near the center of a ship generally experience less motion than passengers in higher or outer cabins.

• Do not sit facing backward from your direction of travel (if in a car).

• Sit in the front seat of a car.

• Do not read while traveling if you are prone to motion sickness.

• When traveling by car or boat, it can sometimes help to keep your gaze fixed on the horizon or on a fixed point.

• Open a vent or source of fresh air if possible.

• Isolate yourself from others who may be suffering from motion sickness. Hearing others talk about motion sickness or seeing others becoming ill can sometimes make you feel ill yourself.
