Some Helpful Information On Travel Sickness
What Is Travel Sickness?
Travel sickness happens when the brain receives mixed messages. Visual messages from the eyes inform the brain that the immediate surroundings are stationary, but a delicate balancing organ in the ear tells the brain that you are moving. This conflicting information triggers the nausea we associate with travel sickness. Try to avoid this conflict by focusing on the scenery outside, rather than inside the car or coach.
What Else Can You Do To Avoid Travel Sickness?
Never read. Sit with the head tilted back to stabilise the balancing mechanism in the ear. Ensure the vehicle you are in is well ventilated. Avoid strong smelling food, smoke, perfume, or petrol fumes. Have a bite to eat before the journey to help keep the stomach settled, but avoid greasy food. If you travel by car take regular breaks for exercise, fresh air and refreshments. Try to give passengers a clear view of the window. In an aeroplane you can ease the pressure on your ears by sucking a boiled sweet during take off and landing. On a boat gaze at the horizon - Do not watch the waves. Keep in the fresh air and shade. Never talk about travel sickness, as the mere thought of it can trigger an attack. Always sit where there is least motion. Avoid anywhere near the wheels of a coach or in the front of a boat.
