‘Tis the season to be merry. Or so the saying goes.
Unfortunately, it is also the season when people tend to overindulge, especially on New Year’s Eve.
If you are looking to start the new year off without a hangover and everything it entails (excessive thirst, a splitting headache, fatigue and nausea), then here are some tips to keep in mind before you pop open the bubbly:
- Have a good meal before you start drinking (preferably something high in carbohydrates).
- Take a multi-vitamin supplement before drinking so that your vitamin and nutrient levels do not become depleted while your body metabolises the alcohol.
- Don’t mix your drinks.
- Drink in moderation.
- Know your limit and stick to it. You are allowed to say no if someone offers you another drink.
- Have a glass of water in between each alcoholic drink you consume.
