Prepare yourself for March 18th with the top five ways to apologize to your body the morning after St. Patrick’s Day.
It’s the morning after St. Patty’s Day and you’ve just woken up. This time you are sure of it: You were definitely hit by a bus last night. As you slowly start to plug back into reality, you go through some basic questions in your mind. “Yes, ok good, I’m in my room. Yes, I’m still in my sparkly green party top. No, I’m not sure if I’m wearing pants.” (You make a mental note to check on that last one as soon as you gather enough strength.) Suddenly the words “OMG, I’m an eighth Irish, let’s go out and get crazy tonight!” makes you want to vom. No worries, here is a list of five things to help you stop feeling like you want to puke and die the morning after.
- Have that pink stuff ready. In fact, go ahead and have a place for it on your nightstand, so initial moving is minimal. Hopefully then the room will stop spinning enough for you to find your missing pants.
- Drink a big glass of orange juice. It helps hydrate your brain faster, so the little men jack hammering inside your skull can chill the eff out. Not into produce? Some good ole fashion H2O is never a bad idea either. For you Diet Coke fanatics out there … sure, why not, have some of that too.
- Take a shower. You might need a shower equipped with a side handle (or a really good friend) to assist you in standing, but shampooing out the bar stench early will save you from catching a whiff of well, yourself, later.
- Eat food as soon as physically possible. Something with a good amount of sustenance is key. It is important to soak up that dry martini and the last minute car bomb still river rafting in your tummy.
- Get some fresh air. I know, I know …who doesn’t just want to melt into their couch and watch Top Model marathons all day during a hangover, but fresh air will help wake you up and reconnect your senses … or something like that.
