You’re on a trip in an airplane and suddenly you get that familiar feeling your palms start to sweat, your stomach starts to churn. You know that you’re experiencing motion sickness, so you decide to stop it. You reach for your Motioneaze, which is known to calm motion sickness within minutes. Uh-oh, you forgot to bring some. What else can you do? If you want to know more about all-natural, motion sickness relieving tips to help you feel better, then check out the list below. These 4 motion sickness hints have been shown to help alleviate the feeling of motion sickness naturally and allow people to enjoy traveling.

1. Accupressure
Accupressure is a technique used in ancient Chinese medicine to help balance out the flow in a person’s body. Today, many experts believe that acupressure can be used to alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness. To use acupressure techniques, simply place your thumb on your inner arm about two inches down from the top of your wrist. Apply firm pressure using your thumb, and hold for a few minutes. After several minutes, the feeling of a churning stomach should subside.

2. Cold Air
One of the most uncomfortable parts of motion sickness is the hot, smothered feeling that comes with it. Many people break into a cold sweat when they feel motion sickness. So, if you’re on a plane, try to tilt the air vent right at your face at full blast. Do the same if you have a car air conditioner or can roll down a window. On a ship, try to go into the fresh air. The cooler temperatures can alleviate one of the unpleasant feelings and help make the nausea less intense.

3. Deep Breathing
Experts believe that motion sickness is greatly exacerbated by anxiety particularly in transportation situations like airplanes and cruise ships. If you are starting to feel motion sick, make yourself take deep breaths in your nose and out of your mouth. This will help ensure that you don’t start hyperventilating because of anxiety. The rapid shallow breaths of hyperventilating have been proven to make motion sickness worse.

4. Ginger
Ginger has long been known as one of the foods that is best for curing nausea. This applies to motion sickness as well. When you’re feeling motion sick, try sucking on a ginger candy, drinking ginger tea, or eating some fresh ginger. Some people even carry around ginger herbal supplements with them, so that they can get a concentrated form of the herb quickly.

If you forget the Motioneaze, remember to try a few of these ideas to lessen your motion sickness so you can relax and enjoy the ride!
