So you drank a few more glasses of alcohol than you were supposed to and now have woken up with the worst hangover known to man. How do you cure it, you ask? Sadly, there is no tried and tested way to cure a hangover. What works for some may not work for others. Here are some of the ways other people have coped with a hangover.
Get Some Sleep – Your body, particularly your liver, needs time to recover. So be kind to your body and stay in bed. Call in sick if you have to, though don’t use “I have a hangover” as an excuse – that won’t score you any brownie points.
Rehydrate – It may sound silly but you need to rehydrate. Drink lots of water and/or orange juice to boost your body’s Vitamin C. Avoid caffeine – this will dehydrate you even further.
Take a Shower – alternating between hot and cold water.
Get Some Exercise – It will be difficult to get your blood pumping when you can barely stand straight, but exercise will make you sweat and would help release the toxins in your body. (Remember to drink lots of water before you go out for a jog though).
Try Alka Seltzer - just pop one or two tablets in water and drink – it may ease your discomfort.
However, the best way to cure a hangover is to not have one. Read about how to prevent hangovers here.
