Tips and Tricks for Preventing Hangovers, Brooklyn, New York

The day after a night out can be anything but fun. From light sensitivity to headaches and fatigue, you might not feel your best after a few too many cocktails. With a little forethought and planning, there are ways to prevent hangovers and ensure that the day after is just as good as the night before.

4 Ways to Prevent a Hangover

1. Don’t Skip Dinner

If you plan on drinking later in the evening, make sure not to skip dinner. You may be tempted to eat lighter or not eat at all, but failure to keep yourself nourished is the most significant cause of hangovers. When food is already in your body, it will help slow down the absorption of alcohol into your bloodstream. The food will also help keep your body replenished with nutrients and electrolytes, which prevent an upset stomach or nausea the following day.

2. Stay Hydrated

cocktailCocktails and other mixed drinks act as diuretics, causing you to use the bathroom often throughout the evening. This water loss can quickly lead to dehydration, especially if you are primarily drinking alcohol. Try to drink a cup of water after each drink you consume to replenish the fluid you will lose. After the evening is over, drink a large glass of water before you get into bed. Keeping yourself hydrated prevents headaches and feelings of fatigue that you often have after a night of drinking.

3. Sleep In

If it’s possible, try to get extra sleep the morning after a night out. The presence of alcohol in your system can inhibit the body’s ability to fall into its natural sleep cycle. Without adequate sleep, you might feel tired or unfocused the next day. Wake up feeling refreshed by closing your curtains, hitting the snooze button, and letting your body rest and recover.

4. Practice Moderation 

Ultimately, the best way to prevent a hangover is to drink your cocktails in moderation. Binge drinking can lead to both hangovers and serious medical issues. The amount of alcohol consumed will directly affect how you feel the next day, so remember to sip your beverages slowly, alternate with water, and focus on enjoying the company around you. If you do consume too much alcohol, make sure to find a responsible ride home and consider having someone stay with you if you are unwell or notice fainting and vomiting.
