Feeling a little delicate today? Forget hair of the dog or hitting up your local greasy spoon for a full English – Em Rusciano offers these 5 tips to bounce back from the hangover from hell.
1. Avoid greasy foods
Despite thinking it will make you feel better, greasy and salty foods only lead to further regret and bloating. Instead, opt for nutrient rich foods loaded with Vitamin B such as seafood, poultry and green leafy veges. And let’s not forget the age-old favourite – Vegemite!
2. Sweat it out
You might not feel like it, but exercise is the best way to rid your body of unwanted toxins. For rapid recovery, opt for cardio to get the heart racing as it’s the best way to counter the calories from the night before
3. Recharge the batteries
A night of excess will deplete your body of key nutrients, so it’s important to replenish before you go to sleep and as soon as you wake up. Look for specially formulated products such as Recoverlyte that are designed to replace electrolytes, key vitamins and amino acids – all vital ingredients to restore normal body function and boost energy
4. Balance is key
Your body needs sleep to rest and recover, but don’t use it as an excuse to spend the entire weekend motionless on the couch as this will only make you feel worse. Step outside for a casual stroll to clear the head, boost your circulation and breath in some fresh air
5. Summer fun
Stimulate the senses and hit the beach. Sun and saltwater offers immediate benefit plus you’ll get a daily dose of vitamin D
