Luckily, spring break starts next week. With all the great things included in spring break, we tend to forget the not so great things. Like, how incredibly bad the next morning is after being out all night. No, I’m not talking about the sleep deprivation.. I am talking about the horrendous hangovers that come with all the fun!!
Here are some tips for before and after drinking!
EAT, A LOT
Maybe this is the reason alcohol adds so much weight. It is KEY to eat before you start drinking. Drinking on an empty stomach does not lead to anything but ending up on the floor passed out in your own vomit (I would not know). A life hack I learned, from an older lady at a restaurant. Fries, yes fries. Fries are potatoes, which seem to soak up all the alcohol. They are also greasy, making your stomach settle better with alcohol. Side Note- they are one of the better things to bring back up.
Sleep is not only important everyday, but especially before you drink. I must sleep, or else I become cranky and no one wants to be around a cranky drunk. So even if it is just a hour of sleep before, rest it up.
This goes for both, before and after. It helps prevent headaches! Which can happen while drinking and after drinking. I choose Ibuprofen, simply because that is what I grew up on. Tylenol and Advil work the same!
I like to start with Gatorade. Typically, because water and other drinks just do not go down as well. It has so many electrolytes in it, that it gives you some hydration. Of course, this will not cure the whole problem. It is just a great start, plus it is super refreshing.
So, not only is it fun to spell out. It also is fun to eat when you are hungover. Bananas have a lot of potassium, which drinking takes out. By eating a banana you lower your chances of nausea! Plus it is one food that is probably guaranteed to have, if you are at the beach or home!
Of course, these are just a handful of my favorite tips. There are hundreds of thousands more ways to prevent an awful hangover. I would love to know your favorite tips! Please leave comments. 🙂
