How to Prevent Seasickness


How to Prevent Seasickness. Being sick at home is hard; being sick on
a boat is unbearable! Keep seasickness from ruining your vacation. You will need Motion sickness medication Water
Bread and other grains Apples Bananas Hard candy and dry crackers. Step 1. Think preventively. Take an over-the-counter antihistamine 1/2
hour prior to boarding the boat or at the first signs of seasickness. You can also consult your doctor for prescription
medication. Step 2. Drink plenty of water prior to boarding. Dehydration can make you dizzy and cause nausea. Avoid drinking alcohol, which can cause dehydration
and nausea. Step 3. Eat right before heading out. Bread and other grains, apples, and bananas
are all good choices. Avoid anything greasy or acidic. Step 4. Find a spot on board where motion is least
noticeable, such as the inner-middle part of the boat. A window can help put the rocking motion into
perspective but can also worsen the feelings of nausea as more objects are moving. Step 5. Focus on the horizon and scenery rather than
the water or the movement of the boat. If you feel queasy, stand; sitting or lying
down can increase nausea. Step 6. Suck on hard candy or eat dry crackers to
help keep nausea in check. Did you know Did you know? Some people who take long cruises suffer “landsickness”
for a few days after their trip as their body readjusts to being on firm ground.

  4. If you get sea sick, pick a spot on the outside of the boat, and walk around, while not looking directly at the boat, stand if you can't keep balance. Don't go inside, being inside everything is stationary, but you still feel like your moving, making an imbalance of your vision and motion senses causing you to feel sick.

    If you get car sick, sit in the seat beside the driver, look ahead and pretend to be the one driving. If you notice most people don't get car sick if they are the one driving.
