Health Tip: Help Prevent Motion Sickness
What to do when traveling by car
(HealthDay News) -- Nothing can ruin a road trip faster than a bout of motion sickness.
The University of Maryland Medical Center suggests how to help prevent motion sickness while in the car:
- Sit in the front seat instead of the back.
- Look at the horizon while you travel, and don't read.
- Lean your head against the headrest, so it doesn't move.
- Point air vents at your face.
- Avoid smoking.
