EVF and dizziness

After months of research, I finally purchased the EOS R. I was so excited to get it and loved everything about that camera except for one thing. This is my first camera with an EVF and I found myself feeling a bit dizzy/nauseous when looking through it. This feeling occurred more often when I was shooting outdoors during the day.. I didn't notice it in the evenings or indoors. I kept shooting with it thinking I would adjust to the viewfinder and the feeling would go away. Sadly that wasn't the case so I ended up returning the camera. I do not experience this when using an OVF.  Has anyone else had a similar experience? Were you able to adjust to the EVF over time? Any idea what might be contributing to this difficulty?

Something to do with the refresh rate, I would suppose.
