5 Ways to Fight Motion Sickness

??????????????????????If you have this annoying sickness for cars, you most likely fear each and every long road trip. It can badly affect your entire commute and a fun and exciting time with your friends and family. Motion sickness or kinetosis is a medical condition some people experience when they’re travelling in automobiles, boats, airplane, train and anything in motion. The most common symptoms accompanying motion sickness includes dizziness, fatigue, cold sweats, and nausea. So how do you go about fighting motion sickness head on?

BP Auto Spares India, a leading name in automobile spare parts industry, delivering Suzuki Spare parts, naming Suzuki Celerio Parts, SX4 Parts, and Alto auto parts for quite some time now, has grounded some simple tips and tricks for you to enjoy your car ride, sickness-free.

Suzuki-Spare-PartsTry Changing Your Seat: The driver of a car is less prone to motion sickness than a passenger; this is because a driver is using all his motor functions to drive a car and can identify motion. Putting yourself behind the wheel can help curb that nauseous feeling up to a great extent. If you don’t know driving and must sit as a passenger, then try sitting in a front seat and looking at the horizon.

Restrain Food Consumption: Limit your consumption of food, drinks and alcohol before and during the travel. Avoid too much alcohol, smoking, food or liquids that don’t align with your digestive system and makes you feel generously full. Food with rich smell, greasy, heavy, or spicy may worsen the symptoms of nausea or motion sickness.

Decide your Position: Decide a position or a seat where you’ll experience the least motion. In the middle of an airplane as well as in the lower level cabins of a ship near the centre, experience considerably less amount of motion. Separate yourself from others who may be suffering from motion sickness.

Enhance Sensory Congruence: When you feel the symptoms of motion sickness approaching, lie down in order to help your sensory system become concord. On a train sit in a front facing seat, in a car or a boat fixate your gaze on the horizon or on a fixed point. The more you equalize your sensory use, the less likely you are to get nauseas.

Take help of “Ginger”: Studies suggest that ginger is the #1 cure for fighting motion sickness. Consume 1 or 2 grams of ginger ½ an hour before travelling. But if you are on blood thinning medicines, you better consult your doctor first.

How to Prep your Tires before Driving Off-Road

Want to explore the wilderness of the deserts in hot summer days? Want to touch those icy mountains in the harsh winter conditions? Then you must prepare your car, most importantly your tires for such thrilling expeditions. Tires are an integral part of a car, a safety feature and the only contact between your car and the pavement below. Make sure you opt for tires that give excellent control over your vehicle, no matter the conditions you are subjecting them to.

Bp Auto Spares India, a leading dealer of auto spares in India including Spare Parts For Tata Telcoline, TATA Indica and TATA Indigo, have put together a list of 6 tips for getting more out of your tires off-road.

Spare Parts For Tata Telcoline

Let’s open the Pandora box!

  1. One thing that is most important and extremely common but is rarely adhered to is that you should drive carefully. This means not subjecting your vehicle to sharp cornering, rapid acceleration and sudden braking, which puts a lot of strain on your tires both in short and long-term sense. Driving a 4WD doesn’t imply that your vehicle isn’t prone to wear and tear.
  2. Applying brakes when you have just hit the potholes or other obstructions will not help you. Apply the brake as you approach and then release it just before hitting it. This will allow your tires to roll during impact, which in turn will diminish the possibility of external damage.
  3. In addition to the above point, in case you hit an extremely large pothole or object during your travels, take your car for tire inspection upon return. Collision incidents can cause internal damage to the tires that often goes unnoticed.
  4. Overloading your car will only put uncalled for strain on your tires and is a disaster waiting to happen. When your car is stuffed to the brim, the excessive weight can create heat inside your tires, resulting in sudden tire failures. Never try to cross the optimum load rating of your tires, which you can find on the side walls of the tire.
  5.  Treat your tires properly even when you are not using them. Store them in a cool, dry place away from excessive heat or sunlight. Because too much heat or sunlight will deteriorate the rubber and compromise your tires’ longevity.

Just follow these 5 tire maintenance mantras and they are ready to hit any kind of weather conditions.
