How can I avoid dizziness?
If you’re feeling dizzy, try these tips that can help minimize it:
- Cut out (or decrease) nicotine, caffeine, and salt. These products impair blood circulation, which increases dizziness.
- If you’re travelling by air, ask if you can move to an area that has less motion like the middle of the plane, close to the wing.
