Friday, October 26th, 2018 | By Emily Coates
So, things got a little boozy? Look, we don’t blame you; sometimes it’s easy to have a few too many while having a darn fun time (…it is a celebration, after all!).
But the hangover the next day? Well, let’s just say.. that part is not so fun.
Luckily, you don’t have to let a queasy stomach and epic headache ruin your day. Looking for a recovery fix? Read on party animals, we’ve put together the ultimate recovery guide to get you back on track.
Eat Liver-Loving Foods
While the likes of broccoli, cauliflower, kale and Brussel sprouts might not be the foods you want to eat when suffering from a hangover, they could help you counteract the symptoms.
That’s because they are packed with powerful enzymes that will promote liver detoxification, which can help you to recover at a faster rate.
Avoid Greasy Junk Food
Many people want to reach for greasy foods when enduring a troublesome hangover (our food of choice is the classic egg and bacon roll!). However, it can slow down digestion in your body, so your hangover will likely last longer than necessary.
Order a Mobile IV Treatment
Lethargy, nausea and headaches are common hangover symptoms. While you might have had an unforgettable day at an event, you might be regretting your alcohol choices the next morning. Rather than feeling sorry for yourself, why not order a mobile IV treatment package? If you’re from the US, check out Reset IV; a registered medical professional will then come to you to dish out your chosen package (which could banish your hangover in a matter of minutes!)
Get into some Exercise
We don’t blame you if you don’t feel like some exercise after a heavy night of drinking alcohol. But, if you can find the motivation, it’s a great way to sweat out toxins from your body and release endorphins, which can boost your energy levels and mood. Just stop working out immediately if you feel dizzy, lightheaded or nauseous!
Drink Coconut Water
Coconut water has become popular in recent years as it can transform a person’s health, hair and skin. However, you might not know that it can be an effective hangover cure. That’s because it can help to replace the electrolytes lost in your body due to drinking alcohol. If you cannot bring yourself to drink coconut water, try lemon water with a splash of apple cider vinegar, which can help to flush toxins from your liver.
Who doesn’t love a sleep in? In our books, there’s nothing better.
Sleep is the best medicine for every bodily ailment, including a hangover. If you know you have consumed more glasses of champagne than you should have during a big day, it might be wise to treat yourself to sleep in, so you can avoid waking up with a headache or nausea. You can trust many other wedding guests will be doing exactly the same as you.
Stretch Your Muscles
It’s common to wake up feeling tired and sore following too many glasses of wine or bottles of beer. If you want to eliminate the aches, pains and tiredness in your body, aim to stretch all your major muscle groups, such as your hamstrings, shoulders, chest, glutes, and back.
