9 Hangover Remedies Worth Trying by Soo Eelee
You partied a little too hard on a working day and now you’re paying the price. Find out which hangover remedies really work and which are great for a quick fix.
An unappeasable appetite for carbs; lingering headaches; a mouth as dry as the Sahara deserts; contact lenses so sticky that they're more of a hassle than help to your vision; unwavering fatigue. These are the symptoms that characterise yet another hangover, and they're all too familiar after a night of booze and chats.
The economy loses millions and billions of dollars each year in productivity due to the fragile heads of their staff having “too much” fun the night before. But, as a seasoned lover of after-work catch up sessions, I have managed to pick up a few tricks on minimizing the aftermath of one too many drinks. While matching every glass of alcohol you drink with a glass of water is possibly the best prevention, it is no doubt a tall order if you plan to enjoy the party at all – unless constantly joining the bee line to the washroom is on your priority list.
Sadly, these nuggets of wisdom never seem to go far enough in helping us lay off the drinks. While some would argue that abstinence is the “best” solution, life just feels too short for absolute teetotalism. With that being said, I decided it’s time to put some remedies to the test – giving me one more excuse to keep the drinks coming.
