Does traveling make you sick?

Does traveling make you sick?

If you''re prone to motion sickness, try these suggestions: Focus on the horizon or a distant, stationary object. Keep your head still while resting against a seat back. Avoid spicy and greasy foods. Steer clear of alcohol and smoke. Don''t overeat. Take an over-the-counter antihistamine before you travel. Ask your doctor about a prescription adhesive patch that can help prevent motion sickness. If you become ill, eat dry crackers or drink a carbonated beverage to settle your stomach.
