We’ve all been there – squeaking for fluids, surviving a raging headache and embracing the previous night’s demons while in a foetal position.
Hangovers, they’re a bitch.
However, there are a few ways to save the sinking ship and turn your near-death post-party experience into a resurrection of beauty.
Fill ‘er up
You have to replenish the lost fluids from the night before, so drinking plenty of water to rehydrate can be a life-saver. Don’t complain that it’s a “schlep”, you got some pretty good practice pouring things down your throat the night before.
Tucking into a massive greasy breakfast is a good way to get your blood sugar levels back up to qualify you again as a functioning human being of society, almost.
Exercising may feel like the ultimate stretch of the imagination when you’re hungover, but it can help. It’s impossible to “sweat the alcohol out”, but you may be able to sweat out some of the shame, as physical activity will release endorphins and boost your mood.
“Hair of the dog”
When things are looking really grim, there’s always the last resort of drinking more.
This “cure” has the general population torn, as some believe it can save the situation, while other say it will only prolong the same hangover effects; either way, you have the opportunity to scrape together the remaining pieces of your dignity and look good doing it. Sipping on a glass of Pierre Jourdan, even if you’re feeling and looking like Gollum, will give you an aire of class and pride.
If you feel like putting down the shots and picking up something different, head over to the Haute Cabrière website.
If nothing is redeeming the situation, there’s always taking the punch of the chin and learning to have your booze in more manageable quantities the next time around. You can vow to stay in next weekend and finish that Suits marathon you’ve been procrastinating on. Even if it’s a lie, the false promise could make your head feel a little better.
