Ok, I’ll admit that I’m one of the millions who celebrated a little too much during the Super Bowl last night. And yes, it’s taking me a little while to get up to speed this morning. If you’re in the same boat with me….AND STOP ROCKING IT, PUHLEEEZE!!!...here are ten hangover remedies from CNN.com. And don’t read them out loud!!
Hair of the dog…Most docs will tell you this is not a good thing but some folks swear by a Bloody Mary the next morning. However, your dog will know something’s up when you’re coming at him with that razor. Ok, that was bad.
Breakfast…Eat something light and easy to digest. One friend suggested a honey sandwich. Not sure who “honey” is but this doesn’t sound like a bad idea.
Alka-Seltzer…Don’t drink it. Put the tablet in your mouth and it’ll make you look rabid when the foam drools out. It’ll make you laugh and, for my money, laughter beats just about anything else as a hangover remedy.
Aspirin or ibuprofen…Two to four every four hours.
Hangover pills…Forget these unless they are covered in chocolate or honey.
Coffee…Liquid hangover pills.
Water and sports drinks…Actually, this IS the Number One hangover remedy according to the experts. Alcohol gets you dehydrated and rehydrating gets you back in good shape.
Exercise…Don’t try bombing and blasting or anything that requires super coordination, you may end up hurt. Take a walk or an easy swim. I wouldn’t even suggest biking depending on the severity of your hangover.
Sauna…Sweating some of the alcohol out sounds good but if you are already dehydrated you may want to rethink losing more liquid.
Sleep…If at all possible, take a nap later today.
“Oh, Honey…where’s my sleeping mask?”
