Maybe I’m hungover….maybe I’m not?!!

Everyone knows they should drink their body weight in water when they get home from a sloppy night out, drink some coffee the next morning, and gorge on greasy pizza. But what about the tricks of the trade that are lesser-known aids for helping quell a hangover that is so impending that the Homeland Security Advisory System switches the danger zone from orange to red (sorry, guys – the times are a’troubling me)?
Here are my personal tricks that truly, honestly help me move through a hungover place to a less hungover place when I wake up at the crack of dawn after a night out, stumbling around my room looking for something to save me from myself…

TAKE A REALLY HOT BATH IN THE MORNING

I find that one of the best ways I can feel about 50% better when I’m hungover is by taking a hot, hot, hot bath. Why? Because I believe that when you soak yourself the morning after you allow your body to sweat out some of the remaining toxins lingering in your bloodstream, freeing your body from the death-grip of a hangover. Just make sure to bring an ice cold pitcher of water with you to replace all the water you’ve lost in your body.

GULP DOWN POTASSIUM SUPPLEMENTS BEFORE YOU GO TO BED + UPON WAKING

Drinking a lot causes you to pee more, and when you’re peeing more, you’re losing salts and potassium quickly this way. Potassium effects proper nerve and muscle function, making you feel like shit if you’re low on it. So if you think bananas are kind of gross like I do, definitely invest in some high quality potassium supplements or get your doc to write you a RX for them. I like to take one before I go to sleep so that my body works to keep my potassium levels at a neutral level as it dehydrates during my sleep, and taking another one when I wake up so that I’m fully re-charged.

LOAD UP ON MAGNESIUM

This particular mineral helps those who suffer from anxiety and insomnia sleep better and smooth out frayed nerves. When you get drunk, you essentially throw your body into a mini-depression afterwards as it depletes your happy hormones from your brain. Taking magnesium before you go to bed and also when you wake up in the morning can help to keep those general feelings of discomfort out of your body. I’d recommend 400mg when you hit the hay, and another 400mg when you wake up with some food.

EAT A CARB

You know you crave carbs when you’re hungover, but do you know why? Your liver is busy metabolizing alcohol when you’re passed out, causing your blood sugar to drop pretty low. Getting those levels up again is essential to feel less tired and irritable – so choose your carb of your choice the morning after. Mine is toasted sesame bagel finished with ricotta cheese, apple slices, and a drizzle of honey from Blackseed Bagels in Nolita.

  1. Thanks for the tips! Readers should be careful about how many potassium pills they “gulp” down! Too much potassium in your blood can stop your heart. Probably not a high risk for most young healthy people, but something to be aware of before you get too potassium happy!

I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
