to avoid a hangover
We have all done
it... overindulge a bit too much on alcohol and then pay the
price the next day when cutting your own head off seems like
a valid solution! But here is what you can do BEFORE and DURING
your party to avoid the hangover blues the next morning
Before you go out, make sure you take your vitamins. When
you drink, you dehydrate and lose vitamins that help your
body. So pop a few vitamin Cs and a daily vitamin before you
go out. And then take another few itamin Cs with you and pop
them over the course of your night.
This should be so obvious but it's not to so many hungover
people out there! This is actually the best thing you can
do to stave off a hangover. Drink a couple glasses of water
before heading out for the night, and then switch off
an alcoholic drink with a glass of water for each drink you
have. You don't need to drink a huge glass... even a few shots
of water is better than none. Don't want to look like a you-know-what
by drinking water? Drop some ice cubes and/or a drink garnish
in your water to disguise it or even drink from the tap in
the bathroom. Then, before you head off to bed that night,
drink at least another glass of water.
Avoid high sugar
and carbonated drinks
You are best to avoid anything with a lot of carbonation,
as this causes alcohol to be absorbed faster. And the combination
of sugar and alcohol and cause havoc on your blood sugar levels.
White rum or dark rum? Always go for clear colored alcohol.
Why shouldn't you enjoy the dark rum or whiskey? Dark drinks
have cogeners, which increase those nasty hangover effects.
So drink clear alcohol whenever possible. And don't mix different
kind of drinks either... even though vodka and white rum are
both clear, your head will not be happy with you in the morning.
Open a fresh
bottle of wine
Don't use that bottle of wine from supper a couple of nights
ago, go for a fresh bottle. Why? The longer ago the bottle
was opened, the more oxidation has occurred, which means a
bigger hangover. So treat yourself to a new bottle, and don't
forget the bottle opener.
Yeah, yeah, we know just not drinking as much will solve a
lot of problems. But we all know that it doesn't always happen
that way, so if you know over-indulgence is an issue, make
sure you follow the above tips!
