So, you went out last night and when you’ve awoke in the morning – your wallet/purse is feeling 10 times lighter, soon your worst fears are realised…. The hangover is here. Follow me @KrisPugh_x to hear my stories!
Hangovers are just an accepted way of life, in fact I think we either wouldn’t believe or would think weirdly of someone if they were to say they have never had one. Some of us suffer worse hangovers than others, or maybe it depends on what we were drinking the night before, me for example if I so much as smell a glitterbomb I’ll wake up the next day unable to move from bed. Some say over time hangovers get worse because your body finds it harder to find the symptoms off as you get old, others say you can drink more when you’re older so your hangovers aren’t as gruesome.
However I have some tips that make that next day just about bearable.
I don’t personally follow the whole ‘nothing cures a hangover like a fry up’ deal, especially not first thing in the morning, best thing I think anyone can do is not eat until they are starving, that way you know your body needs it, rather than just piling grease on top the grease from the below standard kebab shop you were eating in at 4 in the morning. Until your body is crying out for nutrition rely on drink, orange juice usually works for me, or milk. You need something thick down there to overpower the mess that you put in last night.
Headaches are part and parcel of hangovers and they’re pretty much impossible to avoid. It’s also no secret that most of us whilst on a night out have something that we have to do the next day, whether it be work, uni, football or plans with your siblings. A great way to combat the headache while you’re on your way to wherever you’re going is to listen to some soft, calming music, or just anything that chills you out in particular. Me personally, nothing combats the feeling of an atomic bomb going off in your head then a bit of Michael Jackson.. But whatever floats your boat eh? The last thing you want is something loud blasting into the centre of your head when you’ve already got a world war going on in there.
But the best thing I think anyone can do to deal with a hangover, is to just get on with the day as you would normally. If you sit around moping all day the hangover is bound to affect you more, but if you keep yourself busy you probably won’t think about it at all, and before you know it, it’s the end of the day and the hangover has long passed. Of course, if it’s a Sunday you’ve got a hangover on…. You’ve got the right to do nothing and complain like it’s not your fault all day. That’s what Sundays are for right?
I hope that after reading this you feel more equipped to live life with a hangover, and if not.. Hangovers are foul, make sure they’re worth it!
