How to Enjoy a Holiday with a Person Suffering from Motion Sickness








I admit that majority of the families has a member who is suffering from motion sickness. Because of this, it is definitely important to prepare in advance and travel for a perfect holiday vacation. Although not everyone may experience this kind of concern, it does not actually occur all the time.








The most usual motion sickness symptoms include nausea, sweating, saliva in the mouth, dizziness and vomiting based on the health journal I read. For those who experienced the problem, they know exactly what to do once the situation occurs while they travel. Unfortunately, there are folks who easily panic when any of the symptoms begins to bother them. Just like my elder child, he does not know what to do and he immediately vomits when inside the car or bus. Because of this, we always bring some plastic bags and extra shirts in case he cannot prevent himself from vomiting already.







Because I want to help my son overcome his fear whenever we travel, I made an effort to use the Internet and find helpful information about this matter. I learned that children who suffer from motion sickness needs to avoid playing games or perhaps reading books while inside a moving vehicle. It is also important not to place them near the side window, rather allow them to seat in the middle for better viewing while on the road. When it comes to snacking, they need to eat light snacks only and not allowing them to travel when hungry.





There are available prescribed medications to continue enjoying a holiday by defeating motion sickness. When choosing from these offered medicines, it is advisable to follow the instructions properly to avoid any kind of discomfort or inconvenience. Remember that some people experience discomfort because of exceeding the recommended dosage. This is the exact reason why reading the details on the product label is crucial before the intake.






Some individuals may experience this kind of concern when they travel once and others might deal with it repeatedly. To make sure this will not happen all the time, it is important for a person to get some fresh air during the travel. In case there is no available fresh air, it is best to take a few slow and deep breaths. As for those who are traveling by plane, there are available paper bags for vomiting. If a person

is not comfortable to use such bag, it is best to visit the comfort room to vomit privately and not around the other passenger







I know that it is truly embarrassing for a person who cannot overcome a problem like motion sickness. However, there are helpful tips that can still make the journey a memorable one and eliminate the feat of vomiting inside the vehicle while transporting. For me, I guess this is a normal situation and it is just important to prepare the necessary things to prevent a stressful holiday vacation. This is actually part of being a parent when especially traveling with children who worry when they ride a car, bus, cruise ship or airplane.
