St. Patrick’s Day is an ode to drinking, but that doesn’t have to mean a hangover is certain!
You have one opportunity each year to overindulge in green food and green beer and it is on St. Patrick’s Day. This holiday was created to celebrate the Irish heritage and this year it falls on a Saturday. Celebration is likely to last throughout the weekend, so here are a few tips to eliminate a hangover this holiday weekend.
1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
It can be a bit of a pain trying to monitor your water intake as you drink, but with Vida-Flo there is an easier way. It’s called hydration therapy. Hydration therapy is a fast and effective way to eliminate a hangover. The process takes only about 45 minutes and is administered through an IV. It’s virtually painless and within moments, water infused with sodium, electrolytes, and vital minerals are introduced into your body. As a result, you feel renewed, rehydrated, and without the hangover symptoms.
2. Eat a hearty meal
By eating a hearty meal before drinking you can set yourself up for success. The food in your system helps to absorb some of the alcohol, so you won’t feel as bad the next morning compared to a person who didn’t eat. Also, be sure to eat the next day. While fried foods are not the best for you, they can help to settle a queasy hangover stomach.
3. Decrease day drinking
If you begin drinking early in the day, chances are you will intake more alcohol compared to a person who begins at night. Your body, as a result, feels more intoxicated. While day drinking is fun, you can eliminate an intense hangover by limiting the amount of day drinks you inbibe.
4. Know your limit
There’s a fine line between feeling good and being drunk. Knowing the difference between the two can save you from the side effects of nasty hangovers. Try to give yourself thirty minutes to an hour between drinks, so you can gage your intoxication level.
5. Go with responsible friends
If you choose to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with responsible friends you will make responsible decisions. Having fun doesn’t have to end with painful experiences. Responsible friends will encourage you to have a few drinks and a great meal this St. Patrick’s Day, take Uber or Lyft to get home safely, and schedule a hydration therapy appointment in advance to kick the headache and nausea of a hangover.
