Nausea fix need help refining it

So I tried Boneworks.   This game floored me within two steps, and I was super nauseous.   The only thing that works so far is to cram two straws across the bridge of my nose in the headset to give me an anchor point.  With two straws in there I have 0 nausea.  the problem is that it is super uncomfortable and inconvenient.

Any one have any experience or ideas on a better way?

    I have no problems with Boneworks, but the devs recommend it only to seasoned VR enthusiasts, thus if you're new to VR this game should be your last choice. Start with some games where you don't move (Beat Saber etc) and gradually move on to apps where you can move more, maybe like Job/Vacation Simulator (Vader Immortal) where you can walk a few meters. Pistol Whip may be ok too due to constant movement - but that game is not for beginners too.
    Or limit your time and gradually increase exposure.

    Aside from playing less intense games, maybe try having the guardian boundary visible when you look down. I know it breaks immersion a bunch, but it really helps keep you oriented and may help with nausea as well.

    Your trying to run before you can walk, VR takes some getting used to, stick to games with comfortable ratings, use teleport method to move.  You have to break yourself in gradually, too much too fast and you will boff.

    Yea and I succeeded in running fine.  having an anchor point in my view stopped my nausea 100%  I was just wondering if anyone else had tried something like this.

    Everywhere I go to ask for a little help with this problem tells me the same thing.  "Dont play games"   that is not really helpful.

    With respect, no one here has said that.  You are being given good advice, if you are someone who wont take good advice, then no one will ever be able to help you.
