Most people feel the most extreme sensation when sailing by boat or canoe on the sea. This is definitely different than if you were on a cruise ship or a big ship that doesn’t really feel the ocean waves. Have you ever had seasickness? Symptoms are nausea, vomiting, dizziness, sweating, and fatigue. Sea sickness can be overcome with the following steps,
1. Sit in a certain section
One of the most effective ways to treat or prevent seasickness is to sit in a certain part of the boat you’re in. Many people find that sitting on the deck of the boat is more helpful because you will get fresh air which helps reduce nausea. Your eyes can also focus more on the horizon for a better taste. Always make sure to face forward if you are riding a boat. Don’t sit facing backwards or to the side as this can worsen hangover symptoms.
2. Pressure on a specific point of the body
Many people believe that placing clasps on certain parts of your body can reduce the symptoms of seasickness. For example, there are tight bracelets that you can wear around your wrist, or fasten a belt. However, there are no conclusive studies on the effectiveness of this bracelet.
3. Eat the right foods
Eating oily or spicy foods can make seasickness worse. Also avoid consuming alcohol as this worsens the balance of your body. You should eat crackers or grass jelly drinks and jelly which are useful for reducing nausea.
4. Avoid certain activities
Apart from drinking and eating right, there are some activities that you should avoid while on a boat, for example smoking or sitting near smokers. You should also stay away from other people who are experiencing hangover symptoms because listening to their sick reactions when they are drunk, or seeing their vomit react to you doing the same thing.
5. Take anti-hangover drugs
Over-trade (OTC) drugs that work to treat hangovers can help reduce symptoms of seasickness. However, you should take this drug at least 30-60 minutes before you go on a boating trip.
