What to do if you feel sick dur­ing a trip and every trip turns into tor­ture? Many peo­ple have this prob­lem. How­ev­er, the dis­com­fort asso­ci­at­ed with being in a mov­ing vehi­cle can be over­come or at least reduced.



  • First of all, before the trip you need to get a good night’s sleep. Sleepi­ness, weak­ness and fatigue are the ene­mies of the vestibu­lar appa­ra­tus.
  • Going on a trip, eat a hearty meal, but do not overeat — oth­er­wise the appear­ance of nau­sea is guar­an­teed to you. On the eve and on the day of the trip, it is bet­ter to stop drink­ing alco­hol — it also weak­ens the vestibu­lar appa­ra­tus.
  • Stuffi­ness and high tem­per­a­tures in the cab­in increase motion sick­ness, so choose the appro­pri­ate cloth­ing to feel com­fort­able. If there are stops dur­ing the trip, be sure to go out for some fresh air. Drink plen­ty of flu­ids, prefer­ably plain water.

  • A won­der­ful rem­e­dy for motion sick­ness is gin­ger or lemon. A gin­ger­bread cook­ie or a slice of lemon will help reduce dis­com­fort. Any lol­lipops will also help, the main thing is that they be “sour”.
  • Music is a great way to dis­tract your­self from unpleas­ant thoughts and feel­ings — take head­phones with you on a trip. But play­ing games on your phone or read­ing from a tablet will not help you cope with motion sick­ness — fix­ing your gaze on a close point against the back­ground of shak­ing will only increase dis­com­fort. While the bus is mov­ing, it is bet­ter to look into the dis­tance. Bet­ter yet, close your eyes and take a nap.
