7 Tips to Recover After You’ve Partied Too Hard
After a night of drinking, you will be dehydrated. This is why you need to load up on fluids to alleviate the light-headedness, dizziness and headaches. Plenty of water is advised for hydration, as well as ginger ale, coconut water and sports drinks. Ginger ale is great if you have an upset stomach, whilst coconut water and sports drinks can help you to feel better because they will supply you with the nutrients that alcohol has stripped from you. You should stay away from caffeine when you’ve partied too hard, as this will only make matters worse.
Go back to sleep
– One of the reasons why you feel ill and groggy after a night out is because alcohol disrupts the sleep cycle. If you get a few hours more rest, you are assured to wake up feeling better.
Boiled water with lemon and honey
– This is a great combination because the honey helps to balance your blood sugar levels while the lemon replenishes the vitamins you need.
– If you can bring yourself to exercise then a workout is a good idea. Many experts believe this helps you to sweat out the alcohol in your body. Not only this, but you will experience a boost in your mood thanks to the endorphin release. Don’t forget to drink water whilst exercising, you’ll need it, as you’re body will already be dehydrated when you’ve partied too hard.
Snack on mild-flavoured carbohydrates
– This includes the likes of toast and crackers. These foods are advisable because they will soak up the alcohol in your system whilst also helping to alleviate nausea. You should avoid foods that are oily and/or heavy because they will make you feel more nauseous. Stay away from foods that are spicy and acidic as well, as they are more difficult for the body to digest.
Take a painkiller
– One way to minimise the effect of drinking alcohol is to take either ibuprofen or aspirin. These are especially advisable if you are suffering from a dreaded headache. If you can’t stop being sick, you will have to wait until your body recovers before you take a painkiller. You certainly shouldn’t take another dose after you’ve thrown up.
Avoid more alcohol
– A lot of people drink more alcohol when they have a hangover. All you are doing is prolonging the inevitable and when your hangover kicks in it is going to be a lot worse.
