Do you keep asking yourself how to avoid those hangovers that you get, mostly, after every weekend party? We can give you some top ways to avoid hangovers, as long you know your own limits. Remember, that you can always have as much fun as you want, as long you don’t put your own health in danger (always very important #30daysofselfcare).
- Drink in moderation. Yes, that’s always a top one and for a good reason. It’s difficult to do, but you don’t have to keep up for anyone. Drink under your capacity, don’t let others decide for you.
- Don’t mix up drinks - mostly with spirits. If you're not sure about it, you can always google it or find more info at the NHS website. Here're another 10 things you should never mix with alcohol that you should definitely avoid.
- Eat. It’s the most common mistake. Students and people in general, tend to drink without anything in their stomach. It’s very important that you’ve eaten something before, during or after you drink. Always keep this point together with point one.
- Keep yourself hydrated by drinking water. Have a break in between alcoholic drinks, don’t go straight to the next one when you’ve finished. Wait and drink some water in the meantime. Keep drinking water, including when you get home.
- Try to avoid drinking the next day, or at least avoid drinking a huge amount of alcohol.
- Get plenty of sleep. If you think you’re going to be unable to get a proper sleep or a full day off, it’s better to be reasonable about your drinking, or avoid it completely (you don’t have to drink all the time, or you can always wait for the next day).
- Eat a healthy breakfast the next morning. That’s always helpful, mostly for those who have problems with low blood sugar.
- Before taking any painkillers or supplements, always consult the prescription of the box or your doctor. Avoid intoxications at all costs!
- If you think you've drunk too much and are not capable of getting back home on your feet, always ask for help from a friend or colleague and get a safe taxi home. Your life and safety always come first!
