Did you spend the weekend celebrating your bestie’s 21st birthday or your brother’s bachelor party? You probably had the time of your life, but the pounding headache, nausea, and dizziness make you regret all your life choices.
Whether you have to attend classes or an important meeting the next morning, we’re happy to help you feel like you did nothing out of the ordinary over the weekend. Here are some tried and tested tips that will speedily help you recover from your hangover.
Drink Plenty of Water
We cannot emphasize enough the importance of drinking water. There is no concoction out there that will help you as much as drinking water. Make sure you have a bottle of water by your bed and keep sipping it to rid your body of toxins throughout the day. You can also drink lemon water, coconut water, and other hydrating fluids.
Rehydrated with IV Fluids
There is only so much water you can drink. To accelerate your recovery, consider getting NAD IV Therapy. It’s a quick and effective way to combat headaches, fatigue, nausea, insomnia, and other hangover symptoms so you can recover. The best part is that you don’t have to leave your house. You can have a professional by your side anytime, any day.
Just like alcohol, coffee is a diuretic, which means it causes your body to lose water. So chugging coffee won’t help but make your hangover worse. Instead of further dehydrating your body with caffeine, stick to drinking water, smoothies, and fresh juice.
Don’t Skip Breakfast
We understand that even the idea of eating can make you feel queasy. We suggest eating small portions of healthy and bland food that won’t overwhelm your digestive system. Food will help absorb the toxins, restore blood sugar levels, and revitalize your body. We suggest eating toast, fruits, eggs, crackers, and trail mix. If you don’t feel like eating, at least drink a filling smoothie.
Try To Rest
There is no medicine or hack out there that can replace the rest your body needs. While alcohol acts as a sedative, it can disrupt your quality of sleep. Instead of running on no sleep, you should take the day off and get adequate sleep. Furthermore, you shouldn’t drive or operate any heavy machinery if you haven’t slept.
Hair of the Dog Doesn’t Work
You probably have seen people drinking a beer for breakfast as a hangover cure. The ‘hair of the dog’ is a popular practice that claims to cure hangovers by drinking an alcoholic beverage the next morning. While it may provide you with temporary relief, you can’t indefinitely avoid a hangover by staying drunk. This is a particularly bad idea if you have to go to work.
Getting a hangover is inevitable. Rather than trying to postpone your hangover, focus on how you can recover.
After a night of heavy partying, the last thing you want to do is exercise. But hear us out! Moving your body can make you feel significantly better. We’re not asking you to sweat it out in the gym. But at the very least, go on a walk or do stretches.
Probiotics prevent and break down toxic by-products of alcohol metabolism. So eat yogurt or drink a probiotic drink to improve digestion and alleviate hangover symptoms.
The Bottom Line
Unless you’re in your early 20s, a hangover can leave you knocked out for days. Don’t be too hard on yourself. We all go through such days. Hopefully, the above-mentioned tips will get you back on your feet in no time. Remember, you should avoid drinking on an empty stomach and mixing different alcohols. Drink responsibly!
