You know better than to buy anything labeled “hangover cure” for the mornings after a wild night, but there has to be something out there to ease the headache, nausea, and overall sense of feeling like crap-right? I found 5 things that may help in the hopes of getting rid of that horrible “morning after” feeling.
H2O is a must to cure a hangover. As you likely know from the frequent trips to the bathroom during the night, alcohol is a diuretic and can cause dehydration. Before falling into bed, down 16 to 20 ounces of water!
2) Greasy Foods
What you eat after drinking doesn’t matter-it’s what you eat before your crazy night of drinking that can help lessen the hangover the next day. Food helps slow the absorption of alcohol, and the longer it takes the alcohol to reach your blood stream, the longer it is until you become intoxicated, and I mean who doesn’t love coming home to left over pizza after a long night at the club!
3) Pickle Juice?
It’s super weird, but pickle juice and its combination of water, vinegar and sodium, is lauded for its rehydrating properties.I’m not going to try, but if you do and its works, good for you!
Coffee, my go to, the love of my life! Caffeine can both treat and cause headaches and migraines, so this one is a personal preference. If you do down a cup to cure a hangover, be sure to drink water.
5) Going For A Run
LOL, I don’t even do this when I am sober and well, let alone hungover, but apparently it’s very good when you are hungover. The endorphin release could boost your mood. And burning off a few calories may ease your guilt about how much you drank.
