Motion sickness can quickly spoil that long-awaited vacation or business trip. The inner-ear disorder affects balance and equilibrium, possibly leading to queasiness, nausea and vomiting.
The Cleveland Clinic suggests these tips for preventing motion sickness:
1.If you're prone to motion sickness, don't read in a moving vehicle.
2.Be sure to get plenty of sleep before traveling.
3.Skip foods that are acidic or greasy.
4.Drink lots of water throughout the day, but restrict drinking alcohol.
5.Avoid smoking and inhaling second-hand smoke, and close contact with other people who have motion sickness.
6.Lean your head back against the head rest of your seat.
8. If you're a car passenger, look at the scenery in the distance. If you're the driver, always focus on the road, but shift your eyes a bit so that you're not always focused on the same spot.
