Partyphile Clues You In: Hangovers

One of the biggest misconceptions in the Philippines is thinking that hangovers happen while you are drunk. That is false. Hangovers do not mean the same as being intoxicated or drunk. A Hangover is that feeling you get the morning after you drink too much. Usually, you get a headache, you are weak and have no energy, your tummy feels funny, and you feel nauseous.

What causes a hangover? A lot of things, actually. Alcoholic beverages contain certain compounds that inspire alcohol, they also inspire dehydration which usually explains why you feel nauseous and weak. What are the best remedies for hangovers? Here is a ten-step remedy for hangovers:

1.) While drinking, remember to choose the lighter colored alcoholic beverage. This will give you less of a hangover.

2.) Remember to eat before and during your drinking session. More food in your body will help delay the absorption of alcohol.

3.) Stay up late. After drinking, do not sleep straight away. Staying up late allows some alcohol to leave your system before going to sleep. You will feel better when you wake up.

4.) Right before you sleep, drink at least two glasses of water.

5.) Wake up at your normal waking time. This will help keep your body clock in check.

6.) After waking up drink some pain killers if you are suffering from a headache.

7.) Eat some protein because it is known to ease a hangover. Eggs are the easiest option.

8.) Avoid caffeine. This will dehydrate you some more and worsen your hangover.

9.) Drink some water to rehydrate your body. Sports drinks are known to be equally as effective so since water is cheaper, drink water instead.

10.) After eating, go back to sleep. When you wake up, your hangover should be gone.
