As you go on your travels, you may find yourself wondering whether or not you should travel on a boat. Whether you’re thinking about going on a cruise, or traveling to an island via ferry, sea travel is quite common when you’re abroad. While it can be a very adventurous way to travel, it can also lead to feelings of nausea. If you’re feeling seasick on a boat, here are some ways you can overcome it while it’s happening.

Focus On Your Breathing

We’ll start off with the most basic tip: focusing on your breathing. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth, and place your hand on your belly as your doing it. This will help you get in touch with your body, which will help you get through it easier.

Find The Middle

Another practical tip you can try is to place yourself in the middle of the boat. This is the spot that’s least prone to constant jerking and movement, so it’ll be easier for you to potentially limit your feelings of nausea.

Listen To Music

One crucial thing that can distract you from your feelings of nausea is finding something interesting to focus on. However, looking at screens will only make things worse, which is why it’s better to close your eyes and listen to music. This may not work for everyone, but it can be helpful to some, which is why it’s certainly worth a shot.
