With the holidays upon us, many of us will be tempted to drink too much, especially with family stresses caused by excessively high expectations and New Year’s Eve almost here. I’d like to suggest some ways to prevent hangovers that can make the days more difficult and put a damper on your cheer.
Good Tip: If you have overindulged, drink three or four glasses of water before going to sleep. The worst feelings of a hangover are due to dehydration.
Better Tip: Drink in moderation, rotating each alcoholic drink with a glass of water or other non-alcoholic drink. Be sure to eat while drinking to slow your body’s absorption of the alcohol and to help it metabolize at a reasonable rate. Add seltzer to a glass of wine to make what Europeans call a Spritzer.
Best Tip: If you don’t drink alcohol, it’s impossible to get a hangover. Instead, drink seltzer with a slice of lemon or tonic with a wedge of lime.
Watching drunks while you are sober is very entertaining and eye-opening.
