How To Deal With A Hangover

How To Deal With A Hangover

Hangovers are one of the worst things in the world. If you’re currently reading this with a severe hangover then I think you may be super human, well done. Here’s the Greatist Team to help you manage and get out of your nauseous, dizzy Hell:

At some point, nearly everyone’s gotta blow off some steam. And sometimes, the easiest way to let loose is to head out on the town and get a lil’ wild. Healthy (and, more importantly, safe!) drinking is all about balance and making smart decisions. The difference between waking up fresh as a daisy and spending your whole Sunday in bed is a bit of planning and foresight.

Normal hangover symptoms — nausea, sensitivity to light, headache, achy muscles, diarrhea, and decreased motor skills — are all caused by changes in body chemistry due to changing hormone levels and how the chemicals in alcohol affect the body [1]. The science of hangovers (and how to prevent them) is largely unstudied, which is why people have been inventing their own “cures” for centuries. While nothing (except abstaining from alcohol) can guarantee a hangover-free morning, certain strategies can help protect the body from the not-so-fun side effects of a wild night out on the town.

Read on to learn our best tips for how to prevent and cure a hangover. These tricks are designed to help you feel better, but keep in mind that there’s no “magic cure” for a hangover — except not drinking as much the night before.

    10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

    10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

    Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

    It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
