Our team at Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek understands how motion sickness can ruin your road trip. Motion sickness occurs when your inner ear and eyes send conflicting messages about where you are to your brain. Essentially, your body is confused about what you're seeing and feeling. Luckily, there are some things you can do to minimize the effects of motion sickness.

Before you even depart for your road trip, eat a hearty meal. Having your stomach full can reduce nausea. In the event that the motion sickness does cause you to throw up, at least you'll have something to expel. You should eat at least an hour before you leave so that the food has a chance to settle.

Another great option is to take a nap as soon as you depart. It's a good idea to bring headphones or a sleep mask to block out any road noise. Sleeping can reset your inner ear, making you feel comfortable when you wake up.
