(Possibly) Foolproof Hangover Busters
Some totally legit ways to rid yourself of your aching head...
If you’re reading this in bed with blurry eyes and a head that feels like its been flushed down a toilet, we’re right there with you.
Happy New Year to all you chandelier swingers who lived through New Years Eve just like Sia told you to - until you realised that tomorrow did exist, and with it came the promise of the first hangover of 2015.
So what to do now the party's over and you’ve got work in T minus about 72 hours? According to the Internet, the following should sort you right out.
Your mouth feels like a sand dune but you can’t muster the strength to go the kitchen? You're going to have to drag your sorry carcass out of bed to get some water, because rehydrating your (non alcoholic) fluid drained body should be a priority. The NHS (super legit) reckon an isotonic drink might do the trick, so ask a non struggling member of your family to nip out and get you a gatorade. Top tip for the future - drink your body weight in water before bed. You might wake up having wet yourself, but at least you’ll be able to get out of bed!
It’s not even January 2nd and you’re already thinking of packing in the ‘new year-new you’ diet you’d got planned. A fry up seems so damned tempting right now but STAY STRONG. Not only will ten sausages and a packet of bacon rubbish every new year's resolution you pretended to make, but it’ll probably end up coming back up sooner or later. If you can’t fathom the thought of not ingesting something fried, this recipe of fried egg and sweet potato looks like it should go down a treat. Apparently eggs are the perfect hangover food, so if you’ve got no sweet potato, get involved, just keep your slimey fingers away from the grease.
Rehydration sachets are packets of magic dust. They speed up the process of getting your body back feeling normal again, and taste tingly too. All yours for the small price of making the cashier at Boots think you haven’t been to the toilet for a while, as they’re normally marketed at those with diarrhea.
