(HealthDay News) -- The dizzy, nauseous and uncomfortable sensations of motion sickness can make travel unbearable.

The Cleveland Clinic recommends:

  • Don't read in a moving vehicle.
  • Before traveling, make sure you are well-rested.
  • Drink plenty of water, and avoid alcohol and smoking. Also, avoid greasy foods.
  • If possible, stand up and look out at the horizon.
  • Nibble on dry crackers.
  • Lean your head against a vehicle's headrest to help minimize head movement.
