A person often suffers from car sick Attention should be paid to the choice of seating position. This is a measure to reduce the body’s response to motion sickness.

For example, when traveling by car or bus, you should choose a position at the front of the vehicle, with a clear view so that your eyes can see your movement when sitting on the car horizontally and vertically. Then the signal to the brain will be less noisy. Should sit by the window for better ventilation. Airline passengers recommend sitting at the wing of the plane, the phenomenon of drunkenness will be reduced.

Children with motion sickness should sit near the window, in the same direction as the car moves, when riding, they should choose to sit in the front of the car

Trainers should sit in the middle. Note, do not sit in the opposite direction of the seat, so choosing a chair with the same direction of travel will help you get less drunk. Because when sitting upside down, the visual signal records the image going backwards, but the ears and body perceive the body as moving forward, creating more asymmetrical signals to the brain, causing interference, thereby causing more motion sickness. .
