New Year’s Eve is a holiday celebrated across the globe by young and old, most often with liberal libations and late night parties. For many, this can lead to a slow start to the new year accompanied by a wrecking ball hangover.
We want you to start the new year right this time around so here are our best hangover tips to get you feeling good on the 1st of January!
Eat a healthy and hearty dinner before you head out! Drinking on an empty stomach will have you drunk before midnight. It’s recommended that you are still able to stand while ringing in the new year. Also this will give your body the vitamins and nutrients it needs to help metabolize all the booze you put into your body.
Drink as much water as you can while you’re out and about partying! Drinking one glass of water for each alcoholic beverage you intake is a time tested way to avoid the debilitatingly dehydrating effects of heavy drinking. We know this can be hard to do sometimes, so if you can’t commit to the golden rule, do try to hydrate as much as you can. A large glass of water with a pinch of salt before you hit the hay will help your body transition smoothly into the new year. If you don’t abide these first two tips and you wake up to your body punishing your soul the following can alleviate some of the trauma.
Visit your local dispensary. This can improve your mood, help your appetite, manage headaches and body aches, and for many will increase your thirst for the hydration your body needs
Take some 5HTP. 5-Hydroxytryptophan can be obtained at most drug stores and many health stores. It helps your brain to increase the production of serotonin, and can really help to boost your mood after a night of hard partying.
Try and implement as many of these tips as you can when you’re out celebrating, and your body and mind will thank you for it!
Happy New Year!
