- cold face immersion
COLD FACE IMMERSION
Relax your nervous system and indirectly stimulate your vagus nerve by gently splashing cool water on your face.
- motion sickness
This ailment is caused by a conflict between the body’s sense of vision and its sense of equilibrium. Air turbulence increases its possible appearance because the sudden shifts can cause movement of the fluid in the vestibular apparatus of the inner ear. If you have good visual cues (keeping your eyes fixed on a non-moving object), motion sickness is less likely to occur.
PUT YOUR BOOK DOWN
- When the weather is clear and you can see the ground, sea or horizon, you are less susceptible to motion sickness.
- Press onto wrist acupuncture point to relieve nausea (measure three fingers down from wrist and press thumb firmly in between tendons on your inner arm).
