If you’re planning a family road trip this summer, bringing along a stack of favorite books is a great way to keep passengers of all ages occupied on the endless highways of Texas. What’s not so great is the motion sickness or headaches that can result from reading on the go. Here are a few tips from Atzenhoffer to help your bookworms travel more comfortably while enjoying their favorite pastime.
- Remember to rest
Remind your friends and loved ones to take a break from reading to rest their eyes every so often. Napping or looking out the window are great ways to help keep headaches or dizziness at bay.
- Try some medicine
Remember to pack some headache and anti-nausea medicine when you’re preparing for your trip. If your passengers start to feel a bit ill while turning the pages, offering them some age-appropriate remedies could help.
- Listen up
Some people just can’t read in the car without getting sick. If this is true for any of your passengers, encourage them to bring along an audiobook and headphones instead. If your passengers agree on a title, you might even be able to play it over the vehicle’s audio system for everyone to hear.
Here’s wishing your passengers a page-turning good time on your next journey! For all of your other road trip needs — from routine oil changes to a new Chevrolet, Cadillac, Mazda, or Mitsubishi model — contact the Atzenhoffer team in Victoria, Texas.
