The Night before the trip

Lack of sleep, hangovers and upset stomachs are wrong way to start a trip and to avoid motion sickness. Therefore careful eating the 24 hours before the trip is wise and will help to reduce the chance of motion sickness. Therefore avoid a heavy and or fatty meal, one with lots of spices, chicken and fish or anything that is old or a little suspect, like takeaway foods late at night.

Eat before the trip

The fear of vomiting while traveling makes many travelers avoid eating before they leave. But this is the wrong move as a light meal mostly starchy (carbohydrate) helps settle the stomach and reduces the possibility of motion sickness.

Eat during the trip

Snacks or crackers a little and often during the trip will also help to reduce motion sickness.

Don't read while traveling

Reading increases the conflict between what the eye sees and what the bodt feels which is the cause of motion sickness. So if you suffer from motion sickness do not read while traveling.

Position yourself for the least movement

The lesser the movement while traveling the better, this means asking the driver to slow down while in either a car or bus, sitting near the middle of an aeroplane or boat. Try and watch the horizon when you are on a boat and get plenty of fresh air even if its very cold. When in a car try and sit in the front seat looking straight ahead, if you are old enough, drive the car.
