Motion sickness. It’s awful. Often, it ruins trips, stopping people from enjoying a wonderful landscape (while traveling by boat, car or airplane). But, even if it’s not necessarily something that can be cured, there are some tips and ways to avoid motion sickness.
My husband flies on a weekly basis with his job. He suffers from motion sickness. Yes, that’s not a good combination. So what does he do?
Well, from a pilot – and doctors – he found out that there are some pills available. A pill works for 24 hours and indeed makes a flight bearable, allowing him to enjoy it.
I didn’t use to have motion sickness, but it appears that now I, unfortunately, have developed it. And I have it when travelling by car as well. In my case it seems to be from the modification of the angle of the cylinder of my glasses. Anyway, the same pill helped me as well.
But there are other tips as well. The most important, is to stay near a window – have a point of reference, being able to see outside. For the car, this translates into staying on the front seat – a condition, unfortunately.
But motion sickness differs from a person to another. For some it’s worse than for others. So, a general recommendation is to try various remedies, to see what helps you better deal with the motion sickness and stick with those things. You could ask a doctor if a pill could help – and follow their advice.
