You and your S.O. forgot to drink water last night at the party, didn’t you? The party was in full swing and you started drinking…and drinking…and drinking. Your brain today has been replaced with a construction zone for angry gnomes with chainsaws and a bad attitude. You need to evict them so you be a productive member of society.
- Water, water, water. You need to hydrate. Your body is made up of mostly water, and yours is contaminated with booze. Drink up buttercup—water that is. Mythbusted: The old hair of the dog is a lie. You’re just adding more damage, and getting yourself a little drunk again. Instead, have a Virgin Bloody Mary. She’s just as fun, but less drunk.
- Take many naps. You have drank and damaged your body. It needs to recover while you’re sawing logs. Mythbusted: If you're trying to coffee may feel like it's helping you out in the short term, but really it's just dehydrating you more.
- Get in some juice and vitamins. You need to replenish your body’s natural state of stasis. Try some toast with honey, because it’s high in carbs and sugar. Even if you’re watching your carbs, probably all the liquor you were tossing back had way more carbs. Mythbusted: Eating greasy, terrible food isn't a hangover cure, and can in fact make it worse. You can eat tasty good for your food and have the same effect.
- Try exercising. I know, the thought may make you a little nauseated, but it’ll help you to get those toxins in. You can even try doing the ole horizontal lambada if you can convince yourself and your S.O. that you can stomach it.
With these tips you’ll evict those angry gnomes and feel like yourself in no time, or at least a day or two.
