4 Packing Essentials for Your Next Cruise

Posted on by admin

Vacation Essentials & Luxuries

Cruises are a great option for those that like to travel to distant places all over the world but enjoy the journey as much as the destination. If you or someone you’re traveling with has trouble driving for long periods of time or navigating the airport, you can hop aboard a cruise ship and discover thrilling new destinations without worrying about having to make endless travel arrangements. Cruises are also a cost-effective way to explore. You can pay a package fee and get access to everything you need on you trip, including delicious meals, transportation, and accommodations. You can also save a lot of money with online promotions and last-minute deals.

So now that cruise season is upon us, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to bring aboard. Don’t miss out on these items to make it your best vacation yet!

Elegant Dinner Wear

While you might be hanging out in your swimsuit most of the time, most cruise ships feature a luxury dining room where guests can enjoy fine culinary creations. It’s a great way to spice up all those lazy afternoons by the pool or at the buffet. Bring along some nicer attire just in case you feel like a more formal dining experience.

Comfortable Walking Shoes

You’re bound to do a lot of walking during your trip, so make sure that you bring along more than just flip-flops. Once the ship arrives at a destination, you may be on foot for most of the day as you go ashore and explore. If there are any large cliffs or hidden Aztec ruins on land, you might even want to think about wearing hiking shoes. Ships often have plenty of games and activities like basketball and shuffle board, so don’t forget your tennis shoes.

Laundry Bag

It might sound strange, but chances are you might be doing some household chores during your vacation. If you’re sailing for more than a week, you might need to wear an outfit more than once. Also, accidents and spills tend to happen at sea. You don’t want to ruin your favorite shirt on day one. Bring along a laundry bag and some detergent just in case.

Motioneaze for Motion Sickness

Aboard a large cruise ship, many people experience motion sickness, even some that have never experienced motion sickness before. Spending several days at sea might lead you to feelings of nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and lightheadedness. So, why take the risk? Bring along a bottle of Motioneaze and you’ll be prepared for the open waters. As an all-natural herbal supplement, Motioneaze has zero side-effects, so you can enjoy your trip to the fullest.

Don’t let motion sickness push you around. Grab a bottle of Motioneaze today!

4 Ways to Save Money on Your Next Cruise

Cruise Season Is Here: Save Money with These Exclusive Tips

The first few months of the year are known as “cruise season” in the travel industry. Thousands of cold consumers are booking trips to tropical, exotic locations all over the world. We all love hopping on a cruise because we don’t have to worry about making daily travel arrangements, booking different hotel rooms, or hunting down every meal. Plus, it’s great to experience the sights and sounds of an international adventure while enjoying all the comforts of a cruise ship.

If you’re looking to take a cruise in the next few months, you can save hundreds of dollars with these must-know consumer tips.

1. Watch Out for Last-Minute Deals

The cruise line industry is known for giving out huge savings to consumers at the last minute, usually three to six weeks before the trip departure date. You might not like the idea of waiting to book your ticket, but the cruise line will go out on a limb to make sure that every ship is near full capacity. With so many cruises coming and going all over the country, try to keep an open mind regarding your destination and book your trip at the last possible minute.

2. Plan Your Own Excursion Once You Get to Shore

Cruises typically offer group excursions when the ship reaches port, lumping everyone together as they explore the local sights. But these day trips tend to cost extra and can severely limit your experience on shore. After all, you booked this trip to see some spectacular destinations all over the world. So why have the cruise company lead you around? If you want to get out and explore on your own, you can save money and get away from all the other tourists.

3. Go Off the Grid When You’re at Sea

Paying for internet while you’re on the cruise ship can cost you as much as 75 cents per minute. If you don’t need to be online every second of the day while you’re at sea, say no to the onboard internet. You can focus on spending time with loved ones, taking in the sights, or enjoying the ship’s free entertainment options. When it’s time to make a call or send an email, you can always saddle up to a café or restaurant with Wi-Fi when you reach port.

4. Choose Packages Over Individual Purchases

Going with a food or drink package deal on your next cruise is usually much cheaper than running up a separate bill every time you order from one of the restaurants onboard. If you prefer to stick to the free buffet, you’ll save more money overall. But if you enjoy the atmosphere of a high-end restaurant, go for package deals to cut down on costs.

Spending days or weeks at sea might sound like a welcome vacation, but motion sickness can easily derail your trip. Make the most of your cruise with Motioneaze, an all-natural herbal supplement that can ease your symptoms in just a few minutes.

4 Tips for Staying Healthy While Traveling for the Holidays

4 Tips for Staying Healthy While Traveling for the Holidays

Stressed Out About Traveling for the Holidays? Try These Tips First

The holidays are here, and that means it’s time to gear up for a long day of traveling, unless your loved ones are coming to you. Traveling hundreds of miles is just another way to show your family and friends just how much you care. But, some people have more trouble making the trek than others. Regardless of how you plan on getting to your destination this year, you never know when a wave of nausea, motion sickness, or fatigue can sneak up and get the better of you. Make sure you can enjoy the festivities with loved ones by removing the drama out of holiday travel with these tips.

Bring Mild, Healthy Snacks

Around the holidays, your travel plans can quickly go from bad to worse. There’s always a chance that you’ll get bogged down by long security lines and bumper-to-bumper traffic. That means you could get stuck on the road or at the airport for hours on end. Unless you want to load up on whatever they’re selling at the airport or the nearest gas station, you should bring along a bag of refreshments. Pack a few bottles of water and some healthy snacks such as mild crackers, fruit, or unsalted nuts for protein. Severe hunger and dehydration will quickly derail your travel plans, making you more irritable and less focused on the task at hand.

Avoid Greasy Foods While Traveling

As much as you’re looking forward to diving into a world of delicious sweets and hearty holiday ham, being careful what you choose to eat while traveling can make sure you get to your destination feeling good enough for all the holiday fun. Avoid greasy, fattening food the day before and day of your travel. Your diet will either relieve or worsen your motion sickness symptoms. All that grease and fat can put your stomach on edge, making you that much more prone to episodes of fatigue, nausea, dizziness, headaches and motion sickness. Be smart about your travel plans and try to eat small portions of lean, healthy food before you fly or drive this season. You can always pig out when you arrive at your destination.

Drink with Care

If alcohol is a part of your holiday tradition, choose the time and place carefully. Traveling with a hangover is downright unpleasant, but it can be unbearable if you’re also dealing with motion sickness. Do your body a favor and skip the alcohol the night before your trip. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to get your booze on after you’ve completed your journey.

Prepare for Motion Sickness

Even if you’ve never experienced motion sickness, this could be your year. Long security lines, miles of traffic, and endless hours on the tarmac can bring out the worst in everyone. You don’t want to get stranded with nothing to relieve your motion sickness. Instead, bring along a bottle of Motioneaze. This all-natural herbal supplement can relieve your symptoms in just a few minutes. You don’t need a prescription and there are no side-effects. Hooray for happy traveling!

If you have a loved one that suffers from motion sickness, Motioneaze also makes a great holiday stocking stuffer. Take the stress out of your holiday travel plans and order a bottle today!

Elementary School Pupil Boarding Bus And Smiling

Getting Your Child Ready for the New School Year

You can take a big sigh of relief, parents. It’s finally time to send your kids back to school. You’ve already bought the essential binders, folders, and pencils. But if your child suffers from motion sickness, you need to take some extra precautions to make sure that they have everything they need to keep their symptoms at bay. Bus or car rides to school, field trips, even merry go rounds can trigger episodes of nausea and dizziness, in those susceptible to motion sickness. Use these tips to help your child start the new school year on the right note.

Talk to Your Their Teachers

With field trips and physical activities abound, you never know when your child’s motion sickness might spiral out of control. As much as you’d love to be there to hold their hand every step of the way, you need to give relinquish some control over to your child’s teachers. Before the new semester starts send your child’s teacher (or bus driver) a message describing the situation. A bumpy bus ride or an overly active day on the playground might set off your child’s symptoms. Give the teacher a heads up so they can better prepare for any unexpected surprises. You might recommend that your child will be better off sitting in the front seat of the bus.

Give Your Child a Few Tips

Tell your kids to remind their teachers that they have problems with motion sickness. If traveling to another location, remind your child to always keep their eyes on the road and to bring a just-in-case barf bag if needed.

Keep Medications on Hand

Regardless of how your child deals with their motion sickness, it’s best to have some kind of remedy available at all times. Your child might need medication for a school field trip. Some schools won’t let teachers administer medication, but you can find out the school policy and if your child is old enough to take the medication themselves they can just bring a one-time dose in their backpack. If you haven’t already done so, talk to your doctor about how to best manage your child’s symptoms.

Instead of using powerful medications with side effects to deal with your child’s motion sickness, you can alternatively try Motioneaze. Motioneaze is all-natural and completely side-effect free. Certain medications can make your child feel drowsy in the middle of the day, sending their enthusiasm for school out the window. With Motioneaze (topically applied behind each ear), your child can relieve their symptoms in just a few minutes without the negative side-effects. Try a bottle today!

Using Pressure Points to Relieve Nausea and Motion Sickness

P6 Pressure Point for nausea

How to Use the P6 Pressure Point to Relieve Nausea and Vomiting

Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique involving the practice of applying precise pressure (usually with your fingers) to trigger points on the body with the goal of relieving muscle tension, promoting blood circulation, reducing depression, and more. This pressure is essentially a way of turning on the body’s self-healing and regulatory systems.

One pressure point, the P6 (short for Pericardium 6 and also referred to as Nei Guan), is known for its ability to relieve nausea, upset stomach, motion sickness, carpal tunnel syndrome, and headaches. The P6 is located on the inner forearm, three finger breadths below the wrist and in between the two tendons.

How can the P6 provide relief? The Pericardium pathway passes through your chest, through your diaphragm, and into your mid and lower abdomen; on its way to the abdomen, the pathway passes through your stomach. When P6 is stimulated, it can soothe an upset stomach.

Those who suffer from motion or car sickness know how uncomfortable and disruptive nausea and vomiting can be. Read on to find out how to use this pressure point to find relief.

Step 1

Position your hand so that your palm is facing you and your fingers are pointing up.

Step 2

To find the P6 pressure point, place the first three fingers of your opposite hand across your wrist. Then, place your thumb on the point just below your index finger. You should feel two large tendons under your thumb. ​

Step 3

Using your thumb or forefinger, press on this point in a circular motion for two to three minutes. The pressure should be firm but not to the point of causing discomfort.

Step 4

Lastly, repeat the process on your other wrist.

If you’re experiencing nausea or vomiting, these four simple steps can help you find some relief.

3 Tricks to Get Kids with Motion Sickness to Watch the Road

Posted on by admin

tricks to relieve car sickness

Motion sickness is no fun, and it’s especially awful for kids, who may not have the tools or knowledge to be able to deal with it properly.

Fortunately, there are ways to prevent and eliminate motion sickness. One of the easiest ways to ward off motion sickness is to watch the road. Motion sickness is caused when your body (inner ears, nerves, etc.) sense you are moving, but your eyes see something different and the brain gets conflicting signals. This is why anyone in the back seat of a car, especially someone susceptible to motion sickness, is more likely to feel ill on windy roads, since it is more difficult to watch where you are going. Making a concerted effort to watch the road can eliminate motion sickness.

This strategy is easy for adults, but it’s tougher for little ones, who are easily distracted and may not understand the importance of keeping your eyes on the road.

Here are three tricks to get your kids to watch the road.

  1. Road games

Not only are games a great way to pass the time, but certain games are also a sneaky way to get your kids to focus on objects outside of the car.

“I spy” is one of the best games for this. The parent can start by saying “I spy with my little eye something…” and then a color or another adjective describing something outside of the car (“I spy with my little eye something round.”). The child (or everyone in the car) then guesses what you’re referring to.

Another option is the license plate game. The aim is to try to find as many states as possible. When you see a license plate from a different state, write it down (the parents might want to do this!).

  1. Point out various things outside of the car

Focus on one thing like landmarks or red cars or people walking dogs. See how many your kids can count, or have a competition to see who can find the most items in the category. The key to a successful game is to keep the child looking forward.

  1. Rewards

In addition to the games and strategies described above, old-fashioned rewards can work too. Give your kids goals such as “Look outside the car for five whole minutes.” When they successfully complete these challenges, reward them with a snack they love or the promise of something after the trip is over.

Making sure your kids’ eyes are glued to the road helps prevent and reduce motion sickness and makes car trips easier for all involved! Try one or more of these techniques next time you take a car trip. Good luck!
