Dealing with sea sickness


Travelling by boat can be great fun but not if you are prone to sea sickness. There is nothing quite like being sick on a moving boat, especially in stormy seas.

If this sounds like you, you will benefit from these helpful ways to prevent or handle it:

Don’t think about it
If this is the first time on a boat for you don’t think about seas sickness. You might not actual suffer from it but you could very well convince enough to feel ill.

Acupressure wristbands  
You can usually pick up motion sickness wristbands in your pharmacy. They use acupressure to help sufferers and are usually good at stopping nausea and vomiting.

Ginger is good to alleviate nausea and is available in a powder form, tea or even sweets. So if you aren’t a fan of it you will be able to find something that you might like.

Green apples
Some believe green apples are helpful as well. Cruise ships often offer them on their room service menus.

Go outside
Spending as much time on deck as possible will help you to maintain a sense of balance. Staring at the horizon is a good idea.
