TIPS TO PREVENT MOTION SICKNESS

Posted: 08.3.2016
If you are riding in a car, sit in the front seat and look ahead of you. Try to keep your head still and don't read or play video games. Breathing in fresh air from a vent or window can help. Avoid alcohol before traveling. If possible, break up your journey with rest stops where you can get out and walk a bit. If on a boat or ship, stay up on deck if possible and look toward the horizon. Try acupressure; apply pressure with your fingers to the acupressure point located three-finger widths above the wrist joint. You can also find specially designed acupressure wrist straps. Ask your pharmacist about medications for travel sickness.
