Meet Sarah, a young girl excited to go on a road trip with her family. She was thrilled at the prospect of visiting a new place and experiencing new things. The family set off on their journey, all dressed up and with big smiles on their faces. However, after a few hours, Sarah suddenly began to feel sick to her stomach. She couldn’t understand what was causing the feeling of discomfort and couldn’t enjoy the beautiful scenery they were passing along.
As the feeling persisted, her parents soon realized that Sarah was suffering from carsickness, a common problem that occurs due to the motion and movement of a vehicle. They pulled over and tried to calm her down, but the feeling refused to go away. Sarah couldn’t even decipher her own crossword puzzle because of the nausea she was experiencing.
It was only when her father suggested that she try to take deep breaths and focus on a point in the distance that she began to feel a little better. This technique helped her keep her eyes steady and lessen the feeling of being dizzy, which was making her feel worse.
As the miles passed and they reached their destination, Sarah realized that the answer to her crossword clue was “NAUSEA.” She finally understood that the feeling she was experiencing was a common symptom of carsickness, and that many other people may have felt the same.
From that day on, whenever Sarah is a passenger in a car, she remembers the techniques her father taught her to combat the nausea, and she can enjoy the scenery and even complete a crossword puzzle without feeling carsick.
