With COVID-19 restrictions slowly easing, the time is right to plan a short road trip. For many of us, road trips also bring a lot of anxiety due to motion sickness. But the heart wants what it wants, and missing a trip after the extremely long hiatus due to COVID-19 may be worse than the terrible motion sickness.
To calm your mental turmoil, we offer you ways that can help you manage motion sickness. Now relax and enjoy your journey.
Find plenty of room to breathe
Whether moving or static, a tight spot is enough to make you feel dizzy in your stomach. Therefore, make sure that you have enough air to breathe during transport. If the windows are not accessible, make sure the air conditioner is on.
Don’t be full
Full of energy? Certainly. Full of food? New. Will not work. Avoid heavy meals before a trip if you are prone to motion sickness. Stay away from too many oily, spicy or acidic foods. Because, as we all know, the food we eat is only good until it’s inside, if you know what we mean.
watch where you are
Choosing the right seats helps with motion sickness. For example, a front passenger in a car or a seat by the wing of an airplane can help you reduce the effects of motion sickness.
Sour candies and lemon can help manage motion sickness to some degree. Just put one in your mouth and you’ll feel a little better. If these don’t help, keep a bunch of basil leaves handy and chew them at some point.
Music and Medicine
Well, if the other four ways don’t work, the last resort is medicine. Take a pill that helps with motion sickness, turn on some music and try to stare at the journey as you get back to normal.
