New Year's Eve is one of the biggest party nights of the year. Which can leave a lot of people feeling hung over the next morning. But there are a few things to try that might improve head aches and upset stomachs.
Prevention is the best way to cure a hang over. For every drink you have you can alternate it with water or a non-alcoholic beverage to slow down and keep you hydrated. But some times that's not the case. There are 10 tips that can be used if prevention doesn't go as planned.
Justin Wigglez from Washington says, "More alcohol." This is actually one of the worst things that can be done. It may temporarily take the edge off, but could prolong your hangover in the long run. If you're looking to 'sweat out' the alcohol a trip to the sauna may be dangerous to your blood flow, but a gentile workout can be helpful if you can manage it. If not, sleep may be all you need.
Chico Resident Courtney Kluth says, "Sleep until 10 or 11 and then wake up and drink a big glass of water and just take some advil and get a nice fast food meal." Sleeping for long periods of time after a night of drinking tends to help. Aspirin or Ibuprofen can help your head ache, and Alka-Seltzer tends to treat a queasy stomach. There are also hangover pills, but there is very little scientific evidence that they will make you feel any better. Water or other sports drinks can certainly re-hydrate the fluids lost while drinking. And if you're a regular coffee drinker, your caffeine fix may help. Many rely on greasy food to full fill their hang over appetite. And some have remedies of their very own.
Alex Nail from Chico says,"Bacon and coke dude that's going to fix you up." Seattle resident, Mitch Ruedinger says, "Toast, jelly, bologna, ketchup is a good sandwich."There is no scientific evidence that any of these will work, but it may be worth a try when the headache kicks in.
