It’s Sunday evening. You know you have to be at work the next day, but is there ever a bad time to go on a mini-bender with your friends? You start staidly enough with a beer or two, and then one friend calls for shots, and it’s down the tube from there. All’s well until you hazily open your eyes the next day. And with no Jeeves to bring a magic tonic to your bed, you’re ready to try anything to silence the jungle drums pounding in your head. And that’s why we’ve decided to come to your rescue.
Here are 9 ways to cure a hangover and get all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed before you head out to face the week.
1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Believe it or not, water cures hangovers like nothing else. You need to stay hydrated so that the booze is flushed from your system. Drink as much water as you can before leaving for work.
2. Rub lemon in your armpits
This Puerto Rican custom is said to be a preemptive cure for hangovers. People in this South American country rub lemons on their armpits before a night on the town and it helps them survive the next morning. Just remember, this has to be done before you drink and not once the damage is done.
3. Eat pickled gherkins or drink the brine in the bottle
Pickle juice (this is not your naani’s achaar we are talking about) contains salty electrolytes that help your body recover from a crazy hangover. Keep a bottle of jalapenos or gherkins handy in the fridge. It has a pungent smell so you might want to wash yourself up after you eat it. And when not saving your drunk behind, it makes for a delicious sandwich.
4. Go for a run
While running might not cure your hangover completely, the endorphin will definitely boost your mood. Sweating it out will make you want to drink more water and that helps you recover from a hangover sooner than you otherwise would.
5. Eat a good breakfast
When you eat a healthy breakfast, it helps you maintain your sugar levels. The food absorbs the excess alcohol in your body and it helps you recover from that nausea, vomiting, and fatigue.
The tangy zing of lemonade will refresh you and you’d feel less parched. It also has sugar and water in it which help you feel more active. Keep having multiple glasses of lemonade every few hours will kill that hangover.
7. Eat ginger
If you aren’t a ginger fan, you’d probably hate doing this but as it turns out, your grandma was right, and ginger actually helps fight nausea. Combining ginger with brown sugar and a citrus extract improves your hangover symptoms.
8. Eat toast
There are times when you don’t feel like eating after a wild night. On those days, help yourself to toast. It’s easy to digest and you won’t feel hungry later. Eating toast is also a cure for diarrhea.
9. Hair of the dog cocktail
The hair of the dog cocktail is an old-school hangover remedy which is certain to cure nausea. Alcohol, Citra and a hint of pepper will calm your stomach and give you a boost to survive the day ahead. After all, alcohol combats alcohol.
