Hyundai Holiday Made Easy - Motion Sickness

Lots of people will be driving to their favourite holiday locations this December, but a lot of people suffer from motion sickness and aren't really looking forward to the trip.  

It starts with a mild feeling of nausea while you're travelling in a car or on a bus, boat, train or plane.  If you don't deal with it when it strikes, it will progress to a bad case of the sweats while your stomach feels worse and worse; eventually, you'll be dizzy and vomiting. And miserable and dehydrated. You can try several over-the-counter preventative drugs, and there are also homoeopathic options if drugs don't appeal to you. Peppermint and ginger both come in pill form and are great for relieving mild nausea. Some people say acupressure bands work for them. Eating before you travel also helps a bit. But stick to bland pre-trip meals. Avoid greasy and rich foods and spicy fast food. If you can, try sleeping while travelling. 

Other things to do that will help is looking at the horizon. Focus on a distant point. And roll down the window for fresh air. Sitting in a front seat in a car also helps. Drink lots of liquids, soda water works really well. Put down the video game. And the book, movie, and colouring pages. Apply pressure. For some people, applying light but firm pressure to the inside wrist can help.

Encourage your child to look at things outside the car—but through the front windshield instead of through the side window. Stop frequently. If your child signals that he is feeling sick, try to pull over at the nearest rest stop and let him get out and walk around. If you have a cooler in the car, placing something cool on his forehead may help.
