Can motion sickness be prevented?

To prevent motion sickness, it may be useful to sit in the front seat or be the driver when travelling by car. Similarly, sitting on the upper deck of a boat, facing forward on a train or over the wing of a plane may help. Eating and drinking as little as possible and avoiding alcohol, strong smells or smoke during travel is usually recommended. In some people, listening to calming music, lying down flat, or keeping the eyes closed while moving may prevent symptoms.
