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 . 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.
