8 Ways To Prevent A Hangover

8 Ways To Prevent A Hangover

All set for a night on the town but don’t fancy that stinging hangover tomorrow morning? It might be worth taking a look at the tips below. These little nuggets can prevent the all-too-familiar head thump, and help you get along with your day without experiencing an irrepressible urge to plunge your head into the nearest garbage bin every half an hour or so.

1. A Big Fatty Meal Before and/or After

No, it’s not good for you to scoff on a big greasy meal, but when you’re about to go out for a few beers, it could act as a bit of a lifesaver. Lining your stomach reduces the rate at which acetaldehyde (the toxin produced in the body when alcohol is broken down) is absorbed, meaning that symptoms of a nasty hangover are slowed to a crawl.

2. Booze-Water-Booze-Water-Booze-Water

That should be your pattern all night. Throwing in a glass of water for every alcoholic drink you have will do wonders for keeping your hydration levels up.

3. Stay Light. Dark Drinks are the Devil

Sorry bourbon lovers, but if you don’t want your brain feeling like a peppercorn in a grinder the next day, it’s best to switch up your drink of choice. A lot of the darker alcoholic drinks contain congeners which give these drinks a rich flavour, but also give you a pounding head the next day.

4. Hit the Sack

Lack of sleep can bring even the strongest man down to his knees. Boozing seriously disrupts your sleeping patterns, and guzzling too much can knock you into such a deep sleep that you skip the REM phase. Skipping a sleep cycle can make you feel exhausted the next day, so don’t have too many and be sure to hit the sack early.

5. Milk Thistle

A herbal medicine available on the market that lines your liver, protecting it from the evil toxins of alcohol.

6.  Stick. Don’t Mix.

Mixing drinks is absolutely lethal for hangovers. Try to drink one particular drink all night and stick with it.

7.  Ease off the Caffeine

Yeah, coffee is great, but it’ll do nothing for that raging hangover the next day. Caffeine can significantly increase nausea and tremors, which means that your hangover may grow worse after a cup of joe in the morning.

8. Pop a Pill

Popping an ibuprofen in the morning is a great idea to soothe that throbbing head of yours. Your body will be thankful for it.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
