The only way to avoid a pounding head and queasiness the morning-after is to drink in moderation or to stay away from alcohol. Drink another non-alcoholic beverage can reduce the effect of the hangover.
All Alka-Seltzer varieties contain sodium bicarbonate as baking soda which will help settle a queasy tummy by neutralizing stomach acid. Other ingredients such as aspirin and citric acid may irritate your stomach after a night of heavy drinking so it may not work for everyone.
When you’re in the throes of a hangover, it’s easy to let the ground swallow you up in a pit of self-loathing and despair. That doesn’t really help distract yourself with something enjoyable. It is not too taxing like watching your favourite show on Netflix or just looking at cute bunny pictures online.
Taking a relaxing long shower and freshening up can do wonders for your mind. Be careful with the hot shower as the heat can go to your head and make you feel nauseous. A great option is to shower with the window open for a bit of fresh air.
One of the other side effects of drinking is the disruption of your sleep cycle which make you tired even after you did get a good amount of sleep. People who sleep poorly after a night of drinking alcohol will put you to sleep quickly. After a while, the withdrawal of your body and feels will disrupt your sleep. You need more sleep and your foggy brain and achy body will thank you later.
Your first thought will probably be to find something that stops your painful head and its painkiller but just make sure to pick the right painkiller. The most effective painkiller is ibuprofen but must be consumed in fixed dose. Aspirin can also relieve headache but it can wreak havoc if you have a sensitive stomach and potentially make you feel more sick ideally. Before you sleep, take an ibuprofen and a cup of water to help you.
If you are a regular coffee drinker. Skipping your morning cup of coffee when you’re hungover may or may not be a good idea. You may experience pounding caffeine withdrawal headache on top of your hangover woes when you miss your regular morning fix. Caffeine narrows your blood vessels and boosts blood pressure. Both of these can make a hangover worse. If you plan to drink coffee, try a very small amount in the morning wait 30 to 60 minutes.
There is no research that shows sex will make a hangover go away but it does get your attention and often makes the time go by faster without you realizing it so as long as you have someone special, why not?
Diner food is always a great option. Greasy foods replace the fatty acids and break down the alcohol in your liver. Eggs contain Taurine which has is proven to reverse liver damage caused by alcohol. If your tummy is feeling too delicate for diner food, a safer option to get you going would be some mild flavoured carbs. Eat some bananas in the morning will also be a big help.
You can do some exercises like moderate cardio. After the exercise, remember to stay hydrated. Exercises boost your endorphin levels and give you a mental kick. It really can help you feel better.
Drink water will help but juices and sports drinks like Gatorade and PowerAde replace sugars and salts in your system. They also give you quick energy boost and keep you hydrate all the time. For some, drinking hot spicy soup may help too.
