TWO WAYS YOU CAN PREVENT MOTION SICKNESS
Motion sickness is often referred to as car sickness or sea sickness. Anyone can experience motion sickness, but some people have a higher sensitivity than other people. Pregnant women, people who are prone to migraines, and children between the ages of 2 and 12 are most likely to get motion sickness than other people. If you’re someone prone to motion sickness, keep the following two tips in mind:
1. Beware of the Foods You Consume
Eating certain foods, such as foods that do not agree with your stomach and drinking alcoholic beverages are not a good idea before traveling. Foods that make you feel full, are spicy, that are rich in fat, and have a strong odor can cause or worsen motion sickness. So, if you’re gearing up for a long road trip in your new MINI, consider sticking with more plain, safe food options!
2. Choose Your Seating
Before you travel, whether it’s a long trip out of state or overseas, or short trip down to Chicago, you need to choose a seat that will experience the least amount of motion. If you’re traveling in an airplane, sit over the wing of the airplane in the middle. If you’re planning to travel by ship, you’ll want to choose a lower level cabin that’s in the middle of the ship. If you’re traveling in your MINI Hardtop 2 Door or Clubman All4, sitting in the front usually helps prevent motion sickness for most passengers (or taking the drivers seat and enjoying the exciting ride that MINI Cooper models offer!).
