How to Prevent Motion Sickness

Long journeys through winding roads are my idea of hell but over the years I’ve found a few great ways to make the trip more bearable.

Acupressure wristbands contain a nodule that puts pressure on the P6 Point on your wrist, which is said to relieve nausea and vomiting. One should be worn on each wrist at the same time to fully work, and they can be worn as long as needed.

ViBan is similar to a visor but is worn lower down so it blocks your view of anything other than what is directly in front of you. The theory behind this is that if you can’t see the motion, your brain won’t get so mixed up and you won’t feel sick.

Take the tablets at least half an hour before leaving and the tablets will stop you feeling ill once the journey begins. It’s too late to take them once you start to feel ill because they won’t work.

Apparently you’re less likely to suffer from motion sickness if you sit in the middle of the vehicle. The vehicle is steadiest in the middle but you’re also less likely to see the movement outside and seeing it is just as bad as feeling it.

Choose your seat wisely

– In my experience, eating a large, stodgy meal before getting on the boat is the best. – Sipping water makes me feel worse and I’d rather sip something sweet like a fizzy drink or juice.

Eating and drinking

Ginger is a traditional remedy for travel sickness and many people still swear by it today. The best ways to take it are in the form of a tablet or ginger tea but I’m also partial to a few ginger biscuits and a cup of tea.
