Each hangover is unique – ranging from sleep-all-day to this-is-how-I-die. But no matter what level you’re at – these five tips should help you get back to normal – or at least functional.
Obviously. And none of this Gatorade/Powerade stuff. Do it the old fashioned way and hydrate yourself with plenty of water (coconut, lemon, cucumber) and tea.
Exercise is painful to even think about when I’m hungover, but it is extremely beneficial if you can gather enough strength to do it. Hot yoga is amazing for this, as it allows all the toxins to be released from your pores.
Any type of movement can allow fresh oxygen to travel to your brain – allowing you to feel more refreshed and less…dead.
I use a shower puff – but any type of exfoliating tool will do. Take a hot shower and scrub your entire body from your shoulders to your toes.
You’ll emerge, feeling like you have successfully removed all of the alcohol and regretted text messages from your pores.
After a night of drinking your body is in overdrive trying to recuperate and set all your levels back to “normal” – so why not treat it to a little TLC? Take your vitamins and your body will thank you.
Boil a cup of hot water and add some lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and turmeric. I suggest sipping on this with some food, as it quite strong. This always helps me feel better, cleaner and more awake!
When I’m hungover all I can think about is consuming a very large amount of carbs. Bread, potatoes, fries, more bread…
But focusing on eating fruits, vegetables and whole grains speeds up your recovery process. Your skin will thank you as well.
I hope everyone had a lovely New Year’s Eve filled with positive vibes! Let’s #slay 2017.
