Are you feeling motion sick? Being out and about and suffering from a bout of motion sickness can be one of the most uncomfortable feelings in the world. From the cold sweat to nausea, to the feeling of spinning, motion sickness can interrupt your day-to-day routine and severely interfere with your everyday life. If you suffer from motion sickness, though, you don’t have to feel paralyzed. While there hasn’t been a way to completely prevent motion sickness from happening in people, there have been several methods discovered and developed to help stop motion sickness when it’s just getting started.

1. Motioneaze

One of the best ways to stop motion sickness once it starts is by using Motioneaze. MotionEase is intended for fast-acting, on-the-go motion sickness relief. Motioneaze comes in a small bottle so you can carry it with you wherever you go, and to use it, all you have to do is apply a small amount behind your ears. Motioneaze eases the symptoms of motion sickness in 5 minutes by working on your inner ear.

2. Ginger

Ginger is one of the best known natural cures for nausea. While ginger can’t treat all the symptoms of motion sickness, it can be a great way to stave off nausea that often accompanies it. Try drinking a ginger tea or eating a ginger candy or cookie. If you have fresh ginger, that will work, too, and will help you keep going without feeling like you will throw up.

3. Stare at a fixed point

Motion Sickness occurs for several reasons, the best understood is that the brain perceives movement while the eyes do not. To align your eyes and your brain, try staring at a fixed point once you start feeling motion sick like, out at the horizon if you are on a boat. Staring at a fixed point can help you realize how much you actually are or are not moving, and stop the motion sickness from occurring.

4. Acupressure

Try pressing on the inner forearm, two thumb-widths below the wrist, with your fingers when you start to feel motion sick. It’s believed that this acupressure point will relieve both nausea and motion sickness. Hold tightly for several minutes, and you should start to feel the symptoms subside.

5. Take slow, deep breaths

Many experts say that what makes motion sickness so bad is that it often comes with a lot of anxiety about getting more motion sick, which just results in feeling worse. If you are starting to feel motion sick, make sure you take slow, deep breaths in your nose and out of your mouth. Anxiety causes you to hyperventilate, which causes more saliva in your mouth. When nauseous, your body makes you salivate to prepare to vomit and stopping the salivation can make you feel less nauseous as well as less all-around sick or anxious.
