Take 7 Steps to Table Your Motion Sickness
Don’t let the queasies ruin your fun!
You’ve been looking forward to your vacation for months. And now that summer is
finally here, that beachside condo, rustic mountain cabin, or tropical cruise ship
is ready and awaiting your arrival. So why-oh-why are you—URP!—suffering from motion
sickness now? Whether flying turns you green, driving makes you carsick, or sailing
causes the queasies, pack your patience and these easy tricks to turn to as soon
as you feel that telltale nausea:
- Quickly reach for a newspaper—and sniff it four or five times in a row. It may sound
ridiculous, but it’s a quick fix for queasy stomachs.
- Eat a couple of olives, which contain tannins that dry your mouth and reduce the
excess salvia that can cause nausea.
- Press the point along the crease of your inner wrist at the base of your thumb for
20 seconds. Release, then press for another 20 seconds. Repeat on the opposite wrist.
And here are a few tips to help you avoid motion sickness from the get-go:
- Face forward when you’re traveling by boat or train.
- Sit in the most stable spots: midship on a boat, the middle of a bus, over the wings
in a plane, the first car of a train, and the front seat of a car.
- Don’t read or stare at a map while you are in motion.
- Avoid strong food odors and keep the fresh air flowing.
