Holiday Hangover Cures


Vacations are meant to be fun, and sometimes, they can be a little too fun. Especially when celebrating the holidays or special occasion. But don’t let an excess of fun ruin your whole next day! We’ve compiled a list of go-to tips for kicking that holiday hangover and getting your vacation back on track.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate. Hydrate with anything and everything you can all day long—water, sports drinks, soup broth or even pickle juice—the salt and electrolytes are what will bring you back to life and get you back out the door. Coconut water has become increasingly popular recently because of its supercharged hydrating qualities and electrolytes.

Eat a banana. The potassium helps combat the dehydrating effect of alcohol.

Ginger tea. Upset stomach? Ginger has natural stomach-settling qualities.

Eat breakfast. Your best bet is eggs, which are high in cysteine, which helps your body process the toxins in alcohol. Tomatoes have lots of vitamin C (which you’ll be lacking), and if you can’t face a full plate, drink a smoothie (with lots of fruit) to up your blood sugar and replenish at least one or two nutrients you might have lost the previous night.

Go back to bed. Seriously—you’re on vacation! Sleep in a little. Sometimes just an extra hour is all you need. And don’t be afraid to take a nap later in the day. You may not want to miss out on anything, but you’ll miss out on less if you’re feeling recovered.
