37I always get sick and dizzy while riding in a car. So do many other people. All motion sickness results from your body sensing a discrepancy between what you see (in this case, the inside of a car, which tells your brain that you're sitting still) and what you feel (your body's vestibular system, which senses balance from your inner ear, tells your brain that you're moving). Normally, the eyes, inner ears (which contain fluid that sloshes around in reaction to movement), skin, and muscles send sensory information to the brain that allows it to determine the body's position in space and to track whether and in what direction you are moving. Motion sickness is believed to occur when this balancing system gets overwhelmed by contradictory messages sent from the eyes and inner ears.
 
The best solution to this inconvenient state is to focus on a steady distant objects ahead on the road, such as the horizon, and ignore the fast-moving buildings and landscapes rushing besides you and the road.
 
The thing is that our brains are searching for stable and meaningful purpose in everything we sense, hear and see, so that we can evaluate and decide what to do.
 
You never get motion sick when you are actually driving the car. Authentic leaders, and drivers, never lose sight of the desired destination and shared goal. There always will be fast-moving distractions and adverse circumstances, but the clear sense of purpose and common values are what build a stable emotional and intellectual landscape and capacity for accurate analysis and problem-solving.
 
Best regards,
