===Using Medications for Motion Sickness===
#Use sedatives to calm your dog on long car rides. These medications work by interrupting your dog's stress and pain response between the brain and nervous system. They reduce stress and relax your dog for several hours. These products may even allow your dog to sleep peacefully. Always consult a veterinarian and get a prescription before giving your dog a sedative.<ref>http://www.preventivevet.com/dogs/preventing-travel-anxiety-and-carsickness-in-dogs</ref>[[Image:Deal with Severe Motion Sickness in Dogs Step 1.jpg|center]]

#*Ideally, you should only use these medications in emergency situations rather than sedating your dog every time they travel. With repeated use, your dog will need increased dosages to achieve sedation, and these high levels of medication can be harmful to their health.

#Secure your dog in the car to provide a sense of calm. Because dog motion sickness is often closely related to nervousness, it can be helpful to ensure your dog feels safe and secure while in your car. Additionally, reducing motion will help dogs who experience sickness due to the movement of the car.[[Image:Deal with Severe Motion Sickness in Dogs Step 5.jpg|center]]

#Maintain a comfortable temperature. Keeping your car cool with fresh air can be very helpful. A breeze is usually beneficial even if it's warm outside. Keep the window cracked to improve air flow. If you notice your dog panting or drooling, you may need to further reduce the temperature as these are typically indicators that the dog is too warm.<ref>http://www.pettravel.com/0001200.cfm</ref>[[Image:Deal with Severe Motion Sickness in Dogs Step 6.jpg|center]]

#Distract your dog. To quell nervousness and anxiety, keep your dog occupied by engaging them in an interesting task. Bring along a favorite treat or toy, or choose one toy that the dog only gets to play with in the car. Bring a chew toy that will take the dog several hours to consume. Ask a friend or family member to help you distract the dog so you can drive safely.<ref>http://www.pettravel.com/0001200.cfm</ref>[[Image:Deal with Severe Motion Sickness in Dogs Step 7.jpg|center]]

#Use pheromones. Female dogs naturally release calming scents when they deliver a litter of puppies. These pheromones keep puppies calm and relaxed. A synthetic form of this pheromone has been developed to create the same response in anxious pets. You can spray the pheromone in the car or purchase your dog a collar that is saturated with the synthetic pheromone.<ref>http://www.preventivevet.com/dogs/preventing-travel-anxiety-and-carsickness-in-dogs</ref>

===Relieving Stress Related to Car Trips===
 
===Relieving Stress Related to Car Trips===
 
#Train your dog to stop fearing the car. Before you ever take your pet for a ride, let them gradually get used to the vehicle. This can be done a number of ways, but one of the simplest is to discover the point at which your dog gets anxious. This can be inches or feet from the car. Whatever the distance, work with your dog to gradually get closer without showing fear or anxiety, by offering them positive feedback, treats, and affection.[[Image:Deal with Severe Motion Sickness in Dogs Step 4.jpg|center]]

#Acclimate your dog to its carrier or restraint. Your pet's safety during travel is important, and much like always remembering to wear your own seatbelt, your dog should be restrained with a harness, net, or crate during any car ride. However, if your dog isn't used to the restraint, this can be an added form of stress. Take time, weeks or months, to allow your dog to get used to the restraint before using it in the car.<ref>http://www.pettravel.com/0001200.cfm</ref>[[Image:Deal with Severe Motion Sickness in Dogs Step 8.jpg|center]]

#Bring along a friend. Once you've increased the duration of your trips past a few minutes, you may want to start having someone else in the car. This second person will be there to pet the dog, talk to them, play with them, and otherwise soothe your dog during car rides. This should be someone your dog is used to, or someone your dog is always very excited to see.

#Make car rides a reward. If your dog learns a new trick, say, "Yay. You're such a good dog. Let's go for a trip." Then, take your dog for short ride in the car. If your dog is being extra snuggly and lovey, say, "You're such a sweet dog. Let's go for a trip." You get the idea. The key is to use a happy, positive tone of voice and take the dog somewhere fun like a park.[[Image:Deal with Severe Motion Sickness in Dogs Step 14.jpg|center]]

*Be aware that anything you do in magic can be turned against you, especially if you use it for revenge or personal gain. If you practice Wicca, then it is called the Threefold Rule. Any form of white magic will have a similar rule. Black magic practitioners will not acknowledge these rules, but these rules still apply to a certain extent. Treat magic with respect.
 
*Even benevolent spirits can harm you if you don't know how to work with them. Also, some bad spirits will try to convince you they're good. Because spirits bind to the spell caster, take care that you know what you're getting into before you try a spell involving any spirits.

*It's best to play this game late at night so it's pitch black. It's really fun if it's everyone against the person counting, with walkie-talkies and stuff, to call for help. If you are captured, the person who finds them can choose to lock them up(the bathroom works as a prison)or keep them as an ally and then they have to find people too. If they are locked up, they can ask someone to rescue them with a walkie-talkie. They only escape when someone lets them out. Two people can also have to count at the start, and one can guard the prison, but they have to be blindfolded. This is a fun, exciting game.

*Sleeping at night! It is not dangerous if you're careful. Don't lay down in lit areas as this will attract cops. Look for hiding places. The rule of thumb is if you can't see the hiding place neither can anyone else: use your common sense.

*Quiet the mind. Overthinking is what is what is keeping you in your head and not within  your body and in the moment. Anything physical you can do on that note will be able to help you put you in touch with that part of you. The more thinking you do the more you will be in your head which is not what having a wild heart is about.
