Thankfully I have never dealt with real motion sickness. My mom did when she was younger. She threw up almost every time they got it the car. One of our daughters can tend to get a bit car sick if she has not eaten or had enough to drink and she has bombed our van a few times. There is an easy way to stop motion sickness though.
“Parent or not, don’t let nausea from the journey or side effects from anti-nausea medication ruin your time at the destination. Keep Sea-Bands in your glove compartment or travel bag and you’ll be ready to combat motion sickness within 5 minutes. Approved by the FDA, Sea-Band acupressure wristbands are the leading natural, drug-free remedy for motion sickness (car sickness, air sickness, or sea sickness). They work using the ancient Chinese art of acupressure, by applying continuous pressure to the inner wrists (P6 Neiguan pressure point) through a small plastic ball on the inside of each wristband. This stimulation causes the nervous system to release chemicals that help to trigger the body’s natural healing abilities, relieving nausea in minutes.
In addition to the wristbands, Sea-Band Anti-Nausea Ginger Gum is a great option if you’d prefer to subtly relieve your nausea without having to wear your nausea relief bands. Pure ginger root has been used as a medicinal herb for thousands of years and Sea-Band has captured its natural soothing properties in a fast-acting, great-tasting chewing gum. Each piece of gum contains 25mg of ginger oil—equivalent to 8g of fresh ginger root!
Sea-Band products are available in mass market retail, supermarkets and drug stores in the U.S and Canada:
· Sea-Band Drug Free Nausea Relief Bands: $11.99 (U.S), $12.99 (Canada)
· Sea-Band Anti-Nausea Ginger Gum: $6.99 (U.S.)”
Does this intrigue you? If so, please enter below for a chance to win. The winner will get their choice of the adult or child sized Sea Bands as well as the anti-nausea ginger gum to help stop motion sickness.

I received a Gameday Scoreboard at no charge to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
My boys love playing basketball. We have a gravel drive so we have a basketball hoop in the yard. The boys are out there all the time. So, when I was contacted by Gameday Scoreboards, I couldn’t wait to try it out! The Gameday Scoreboard is a digital scoreboard that attaches to your basketball pole. Not only does it keep score and keep time with a countdown clock, it’s also pre-programmed with 10 games, including the classics, HORSE and 21. To say the boys were excited to try it out is an understatement! It has a hook and loop strap that allows you to easily attach it to any basketball pole. After a quick read through of the directions, they got started.
Even the youngest boys got in on the action!
I have to say, it is so much fun doing a review when we truly love a product and that was the case with our Gameday Scoreboard! The day we put it up, the boys spent almost 2 hours straight playing. They have a blast with all the different features. They challenged each other in games of PIG and HORSE and competed in free throw contests over and over. It’s very easy to use and works perfectly.
My husband got in on the action on Father’s Day and they played a regular game using the game clock and scorekeeper. You can choose from a 6 minute, 12 minute or 18 minute game which includes 5-4-3-2-1 countdown and game winning score flashing at the end. It even has a recording of crowds cheering and horns blaring when points are scored. The younger boys really got a kick out of that. And for those little disputes, there is a Referee button. If you think you’ve been fouled, just press the button and the Ref makes the call. As a parent, I loved this feature! The boys knew that what the ref said, went so there were no arguments.
Our Gameday Scoreboard has been a huge hit. The boys want to play it everyday. In fact, we had a ton of rain yesterday but that didn’t stop them. They got creative and strapped the scoreboard onto one of the poles in the basement and put a toy bucket underneath it so they could play inside! I hear “We’re bored” quite a bit during the summer. This great item is helping to put an end to that. The boys are having fun and being active at the same time. Good for them and good for me, since the more worn out they are, the better they sleep! A Gameday Scoreboard would make a great gift for the basketball enthusiast in your life!
