Planning on indulging a little bit this holiday season?
No worries! I’ve got your back.
Whether it’s drunken eggnog, drunken coffee or just plain drunkenness, here are some things you can do the night before the morning after to ensure your next day isn’t a complete write-off. Cause we’re not in college anymore and some of us have kids that get up at the butt-crack of dawn.
- Set up your day for success by eating – Yes, eating throughout the day keeps your blood sugars stable, which alcohol fucks up, so you want to eat frequently, especially protein throughout the day. Don’t worry about the calories. Just eat so you’re not drinking on an empty stomach, which then leads to kissing the wrong person, and then feeling like shit the next day on so many levels.
- Have a green smoothie before you head out – this will inject you with B Vitamins for energy, magnesium and other nutrients to help keep your electrolytes stable while your liver takes a hit.
- Before going to bed have magnesium – this is literally a panacea for everything. Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant and helps restore our nervous system.
- Drink a large glass of lemon water before bed – Yup. You will likely go pee throughout the night, but that’s a good thing! Lemon is an amazing detoxifier (and alkalinizing!) and your liver does it’s best work overnight so give it a helping hand.
- Grab an Umeboshi Plum and go to town – Ume Plum vinegar or ume plums (a Japanese delicacy but available at most health food stores and probably amazon) have alkaline properties that really help with hangovers since alcohol is acidic, so we need to tone down that acidity to feel better.
The next day – lots of water, eat lots of greens & protein to soak it all up – but if you do all 5 steps the night before, you shouldn’t have an issue!
Have fun, don’t drink and drive, and kiss only those who you know will kiss you back.
