It’s in human nature to barf up everything single thing you might have eaten at some point. Of course this doesn’t mean that you would barf like you would breathe, but more like when things keep getting worse after a certain point, coughing up all your digested food is only natural. Nonetheless, it is something that no one enjoys going through. However, most people tend to suffer from this as a result of motion sickness. So here are some tips to help you take better control of it. 

Find the best ways to stay in control

Sometimes the reason for people to end up having to stock up on the vomit bags Australia they would need to carry along with them when riding a trip is, choosing the wrong seat. This doesn’t mean that it is a problem of the seat, but more like the place that you choose to sit. Generally, the person driving the vehicle is less prone to motion sickness because his mind is keeping him busy while his body works on navigating the vehicle through the streets, but the others need to keep themselves busy by talking or looking out the window, to avoid undergoing this. So if you must choose a seat that is not the driver’s then aim for the shotgun and if you are still pushed to the back, then look out the window or talk to the others rather than keeping to yourself.

Choose the right food

Taking the wrong kinds of foods and drinks could also affect your motion sickness. Never eat foods that make you easily feel full, or drink alcohol, or eat food with a strong odor or even smoke. These could easily trigger your digestive system and brain causing you to throw up all over the seats. So think twice when you are packing food for travelling.

Pick the right place

In a vehicle the impact of bumps and potholes are felt more when you sit at the back while those at the front experience it at a lesser impact. So if you know that you might end up throwing up because you are anyway sensitive when travelling, then choose the place with the least amount of movement. This way the more still your body is, the lesser prone it is to cough up all that digested food in to a barf bag.

Take meds

There are certain specified drugs that are recommended to be taken before you travel. So visit a pharmacy and make sure that you take enough pills of it to help you have a much smoother journey regardless of the twists and bumps.
