Travel Lens came out with their study on top tips for beating airsickness before jetting off for an autumn getaway. 

Some say there is nothing worse than airsickness which is when the body receives conflicting information from the eyes, ears, and muscles. When this happens it confuses the brain which can cause dizziness, fatigue and the dreaded nausea. 

Tips to avoid airsickness:

  • Pick your seat carefully
  • Switch on the air
  • Put down the book
  • Fix your gaze
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Put screens away
  • Choose food wisely
  • Get comfy
  • Snack on ginger

According to Travel Lens, picking your seat can impact your motion sickness. They suggest picking a seat in the middle wing closer to the front of the plane where the journey might feel more stable. 

Reading books can feel relaxing, however those who suffer from motion sickness might find it not relaxing at all and in fact nauseating. The best thing to do is listen to an audio book and focus on relaxing. 

It’s best to stay away from greasy and spicy foods before a long plane ride or other foods that are known to upset a stomach.
