Wouldn’t you love to know how to cure a hangover fast? Recover from your hangover quicker than ever with these essential tips! You’ll be right back to your old self in no time at all.
Before I dive into the best way to cure a hangover, I want to first wish everyone happy holidays and I am sending love for a safe, successful and most importantly a healthy New Year! Usually, my family and I celebrate and ring in each New Year with some wonderful friends, but this year will definitely be more of a vacation at home instead.
The holidays coming often means a lot of celebrating, which can equal some champagne and cocktails (cheers). You need to know the best hangover cure, so you don’t have to lose a whole day in bed feeling sick.
How does a hangover feel?
Celebrating and having some drinks might sound like a fun idea at the time, but the older I get I notice that it becomes more difficult to recover from these “fun ideas” that can then turn into a hangover the next day.
Let me just be honest and say that there isn’t anything fun at all about a hangover. I think I might get the spins just from thinking and writing about it.
If you have never experienced one (lucky you) and want to know how a hangover feels, I have one word for you — AWFUL. You will probably experience a migraine-like headache and that could also come along with sensitivity to light, nausea, vomiting, dizziness and restlessness.
Now, I know the ideal answer for a quick hangover cure would be to not drink at all, but if you do, I recommended that you don’t overindulge.
What is the best cure for a hangover?
When you find yourself imbibing a bit more than you intended to, and wake up not feeling so good, you’ll immediately want an emergency hangover cure. I’ve decided to share my tried and true tips on what cures a hangover.
Share and save this post for the next time you are celebrating and sipping champagne, mixed drinks or beer, so you don’t forget the tips I am about to give you.
1. Go back to sleep
This is the simplest tip I have for you on quickly curing a hangover.
Keeping your head down and still on the pillow, with your eyes closed, will help your body take the time it needs to naturally recuperate.
2. DripDrop hydration powder packets
Prevent and recover faster from dehydration caused by hangover DripDrop is loaded with electrolytes, including sodium, sugars and potassium, which promote good hydration and enables your body to absorb water more quickly into the bloodstream to promote greater fluid retention.
*You simply mix a dripdrop hydration powder packet with water and drink, which safely and effectively treats mild to moderate dehydration.
Take 2 Excedrin pills after you wake up with a hangover to very quickly cure it.
Sometimes that fast relief is needed when I have to get myself up and moving, or especially when I am traveling.
4. Alka Seltzer Morning Relief
Alka-Seltzer Morning Relief is the first nationally available effervescent product that is promoted specifically as a hangover remedy.
Alka-Seltzer Morning Relief packs a maximum strength pain reliever and caffeine into a refreshing citrus effervescent product that is gentle on your stomach and gives you a burst of energy to get you going again after a hangover.
5. Do not overindulge when it comes to alcohol
This tip is a no-brainer, but at times can be difficult to remember or adhere to when you are in the moment of those celebrations and fun times that I mentioned earlier.
As I said before, the older I get the more I remember just how rough hangovers can be, therefore I have learned over the years not to overindulge and know my limit when it comes to alcohol. *This tip works fabulously I have to say.
I hope you find these tips on how to cure a hangover fast, helpful, especially with all of the holiday parties and celebrations coming up (even if this year they will be virtual).
