Try 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.
