You’ve had a crazy night out with friends, you barely remember what happened and your head feels like it weighs a thousand pounds; your body is aching and you swear not to drink again, even though you secretly know you will. Of course, pharmaceuticals companies know this as well and they’re constantly releasing new pills to allegedly cure your hangover; the problem – none of them work. However, there are a few remedies you could try in order to feel like a person again after your wild night out.
Drink Two Glasses of Cold Water
It’s not uncommon to see someone begging for water first thing when they wake up, after a wild night out. After all, excessive drinking quenches your thirst, because your body is hydrated. By drinking at least two glasses of cold water first thing in the morning, you’ll ensure that you are on your way to becoming a person again. Yes, cold water won’t cure your hangover, but it’s a step in the right direction, and it does help.
Sprite, 7-Up or Any Caffeine-Free Sugar Drink
It may sound ironic, but caffeine-free sugar drinks are a great way to feel better again after a crazy night. According to a Chinese study, drinks such as Sprite and 7-Up, or almost any sports sugar drink for that matter, helps your body to metabolize alcohol better by speeding up your ability to process the chemical ALDH, which is believed to be the sole reason for every hangover symptom.
Exercise certainly won’t cure your hangover, as you alcohol isn’t simply something you can “sweat out.” However, exercise has a ton of benefits, one of which being the release of endorphins. It will certainly easy your pain and boost your mood. However, be sure to have a water bottle by your side, as you don’t want to get extra-dyhydrated.
