Obviously, the weekends were created for us to have some rest, relaxation, and fun. With St. Patrick’s Day falling on a Sunday this year, the next few days are guaranteed to be a little crazy for many of us. To help you avoid that dreaded morning-after hangover here are 4 quick and easy tips you can follow.
- Opt. For Clear Liquors – Not all liquors are created equal. Certain alcohol beverages contain congener, a chemical that can contribute towards hangover symptoms. Avoid tequila, cognac and bourbon, which are high in congeners. Instead, go for vodka, white rum, and gin which are lower in congeners. Our favourite is Bulldog Gin, which was established by one of our founders, Anshuman Vohra
- Go To Sleep – Ever wonder why you’re grumpy and mad the morning after a night out? Alcohol impairs both sleep time and quality, which means your body – already exhausted from a nocturnal adventure – isn’t getting the rest it needs to recover. This leaves you vulnerable to fatigue and irritability. Before you snooze though, be sure to grab a glass of water or a bottle of HALO so you can stay hydrated.
- Eat A Hearty Breakfast – Hangovers can also be a result of low blood sugar levels. While this is not a major cause of a hangover, it may contribute to some of its well-known symptoms, such as weakness and that mind-splitting headache.
- Reach For A HALO – Alcohol is a diuretic, which can put some people at a high risk of getting dehydrated. Drinking a HALO before, during, or after a night out will keep you hydrated and will replace the electrolytes you lost as a result of alcohol’s effects. It also fuels your body with vitamins and minerals, which can aids for its recovery. Having a HALO before you go to sleep will also help you get a better night's sleep.
